Inspect the pipes and ensure they are in good condition. The white protective strip in the socket helps to keep the sealing area free from dirt, mud and gravel.
Ensure the spigot and socket are clean. Apply lubricant to the spigot. This should be spread evenly over the entire surface paying special attention to the front radius of the spigot.
Centre the spigot into the socket and push the pipes together. The socket design and wedge shaped seal provide a funnel action and help centre the pipes.
