If you are planning for plumbing works, one of the top fitting options is plastic. Plastic fittings are preferred because they are tough, are resistant to chemical attacks, and can be used in most plumbing works. More importantly, they are corrosion resistant. Plastic fittings are available in different versions just like other models developed with brass or steel. The common plastic fittings include poly elbows that are used to change the direction of flow. They are mainly designed to change the direction of your piping by 45 degrees, 60 degrees or 90 degrees. The poly elbows can be available in both male and female pieces to make plumbing easy. Besides, there are instances when the elbows feature side outlets that make them work as a tee with a bend. Another common plastic fitting is the poly nipple. This is a short stub of pipe with male threads on each end. Unlike elbows
, the nipples
are used for connecting straight pipe runs. In the case of close nipples, the threads run the entire length of the fitting. Other plastic fittings include plastic hose barbs
, and PVC schedule 80. Visit our website to see the full list of plastic fittings.
