If you’re dealing with a construction project, you should know the kinds of pipe fittings available for sale, as well as their pros and cons, so you can make the right decision. The Youtube video “Pipe Fitting Used in Plumbing Systems – Basic Plumbing Fittings Used In House” shows all your options, so let’s find out more!
Pipe fittings are used to connect pipes of the same or different sizes, so the piping system around a house can work properly. These fittings help regulate the flow of liquids, and there are many types that contractors can choose from. However, it’s best if the fitting material is the same as the rest of the pipes.
They should also work with the kind of liquid that’ll flow and be strong enough to withstand the pressure.
Normally, fittings are made with brass or copper, and there are multiple types available. One type is the elbow fitting, which is used to redirect the flow of liquid. Elbow fittings are available at angles of 90 degrees and 45 degrees. They are threaded into the pipes or welded.
