If you are looking for plastic pipe fittings, you have many choices. You can use threaded fittings, unions, or flanges to connect your pipes. These connections are usually limited to 150 psi or 50% of the rated pressure of the pipes. To find the right fitting for your pipes, check the specifications of each one. CPVCTECH's technical staff can help you select the right fitting. They can even help you identify which sizes and shapes will fit your pipe and what type of piping.

If you're working with CPVC, PVC, or ABS pipe, you should apply a primer. Then, spread a thin layer of solvent on the inside hub and outside surface of the pipe. The solvent should be applied thoroughly to the surface and the pipe. Make sure you wear gloves, as solvents give off powerful fumes. Next, insert the pipe into the fitting with a quarter turn. Make sure the pipe is evenly seated in the socket.

Plastic pipe fittings typically connect to plastic pipe using an interference fit. This is also known as a press or friction fit. The hub of a plastic fitting is not designed to match the pipe exactly, but it does taper slightly to create a tight fit. This prevents glue from getting into the gap. If the plastic pipe fittings fail, the next step is to replace them with a more sturdy pipe fitting. This way, you'll save money while minimizing the chance of failure.

When installing plastic pipe fittings, consider the size and the type of pipe you're installing. Make sure to buy a couple of different sizes for each pipe segment. Some fittings are made for both inlet and outlet. While the length and diameter of the fittings should be chosen according to the purpose, the sizing is the most important aspect of any plastic pipe fitting. If you need to connect one end of a pipe with another, you'll need adapters.

When purchasing plastic pipe fittings, look for the initials on the plastic. They will help you identify the right size. You can find them on the label and by the color. If you're a DIYer, consider buying plastic pipe fitting kits that include the hub. The plastic pipe fittings have a carefully molded "hub" that slides into the pipe. When measuring pipe size, make sure to add in the depth of the hubs. You can use a tape measure to help you with this.
