There are poly fittings, but they are rarely used and typically only in industrial application. When we refer to “poly fittings”, we mean fittings made of materials that are compatible with poly pipe. Below are many different types of fittings, with individual characteristics depending on the project or job that you are working on.
The Polyethylene Tubing is a standard pipe which is rated at 100psi (Pounds per Square Inch). The corresponding fittings are barbed and are inserted into the pipe. Depending on the project, hose clamps may be needed for a more secure application. The fittings are also made of either plastic (PVC) or galvanized steel.
Tuff Tubing, however, is a pipe that is a bit thicker and is rated at 200psi. The Tuff Tubing is also a Poly Pipe, which uses brass fittings. Unlike your standard Polyethylene Pipe, the Tuff Tube is inserted into the fittings and is secured down by a nut, or bolt and screw depending on the type of fitting being used. The pressure going through these tubes requires a strong fitting hence the name, “TUFF TUBE”.
