I am new to the water world. Is the only difference between a restrained mechanical joint and a regular mechanical joint the addition of a grip ring such as a mega lug that has set screws that screw down onto the pipe. Also does a concrete kicker make a regular mechanical joint a restrained mechanical joint.
Any information would be helpful. thanks, Civil G
