Yes, if you have no other choice. But first check if you can buy the couplings at local stores that sell drain pipe. They are commonly used by builders who have to install drain pipes.
If you must make couplings, cut some 8 to 12 inch lengths of Sondex pipe and slit them. To use, but the two lengths of Sondex pipe together, then fit the coupling onto the joint. Use cable ties to secure the coupling. Then use mastic and tape to waterproof the joint.
