- Lower the bell end of the pipe assembly into the trench and position it according to your needs. The bell is the end of the pipe with the wide collar that fits round the smaller end of the other pipe.
- Wipe the inside of the pipe bell and apply lubricant to it using a cloth. Make sure there is no dirt on the bell before applying the lubricant.
- Peel off the protective layer around the spigot end of the joining pipe and lubricate it on the outside. The spigot is the end of the pipe that fits into the bell opening of the other pipe.
- Line up the marks around the spigot with the marks around the bell, and push the spigot into the bell. Make sure that the spigot is firmly set in the bell.
- Insert the installation stub into the open end of the spigot pipe. The steel bar inside should be aligned horizontally.
- Stick the pole into the ground right in front of the stub and hold it vertically. Push the pole against the steel bar until the bell seals around the spigot.
