What Is a PVC Fitting
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a kind of plastic that can vary widely in use from clothing to inflatable products. Although it is widely used, more than half of the PVC manufactured is used to make piping and fittings. PVC is very lightweight and can withstand high temperatures. It can also withstand a variety of chemicals and is resistant to corrosion. PVC pipe fittings come in a variety of sizes, but there are also variations of PVC, including:
- CPVC is a chlorinated PVC resin, which allows it to withstand extremely hot temperatures.
- PIP pipe fittings are made specifically for irrigation systems.
- SDR PVC is made for use in sewage systems
PVC is generally used for plumbing purposes but can also be used in electrical applications. PVC is a popular choice when it comes to running wire. The piping serves as a shield for the wiring and helps protect them from weather, water, and other hazards.
Note: One of the tedious aspects of using PVC for plumbing is that you must use PVC cement and primer to connect pipe to a fitting. Without the primer, the bond will eventually crack.
PVC Fitting Types
Each type of fitting serves a unique purpose. PVC pipe fittings can redirect the piping, cap a line, split a line, control flow, release pressure, and more. They come in a variety of sizes, so make sure the part you order is compatible with your existing piping. Fitting types include elbows, couplings, gaskets, unions, reducers, tees, crosses, caps, plugs, nipples, barbs, and valves.
