PVC Nipples for your plumbing needs. Use to connect two female threaded fittings together. They are great for connecting valves to bulkheads or any other instance where you may want to remove the plumbing without having to physically damage any pieces. To make a leak-free seal, we highly suggest using aquarium safe silicone on the threads over the traditional Teflon tape. More professional look than white Schedule 40 PVC.
The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper.
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating than a project delay.
