Polyvinyl chloride, commonly known as PVC, is more cost-effective than other materials, resists cracking, isn't affected by acids, and can be rigid or flexible. Depending on its width, it can be used to move liquid AND gases safely. However, owing to its composition, PVC is limited to carrying liquids at temperatures less than 140 degrees. PVC Fittings come in three styles...Schedule 40, Schedule 80 and DWV. Schedule 40 fittings are pressure fittings used for potable water, chilled water, irrigation, golf courses, and pool/spa applications. Applications with high water pressure may require Schedule 80 PVC. Both Schedule 40 and 80 PVC are used widely around the world. Each one has its benefits in different applications. Schedule 40 has thinner walls, so it is best for applications involving relatively low water pressure. Schedule 80 has thicker walls and is able to withstand a higher PSI. This makes it ideal for industrial and chemical applications. DWV fittings are used for drainage, waste, and venting in residential and commercial sanitary systems. The piping must be DWV rated. DWV systems maintain neutral air pressure in the drains, allowing the flow of water and sewage down drains and through waste pipes by gravity. Because of this, it is critical that a downward slope be maintained throughout. When talking about PVC, we must mention it's brother, CPVC. It has similar uses, but because of the chlorinating process, it is able to withstand higher pressures and temperatures. CPVC has an upper temperature tolerance of 180 degrees, so it can be used for hydronic heating pipes which contribute to its popularity as a material for systems in residential as well as commercial construction. CPVC Schedule 80 fittings have exceptional chemical and corrosion resistance. Ideal as an alternative to metal, these fittings never rust, scale or pit, and provide extended system life guaranteeing years of maintenance-free service. With higher temperature rating, higher flow capacity and lower installation costs, these fittings are useful for a wide range of applications including hot and corrosive liquids. Finally. PVC Insert Fittings are most commonly used in irrigation systems. They have barbed end connections, which is ideal for a tightly gripped seal. The barbs mean that no adhesives are necessary, and they are NSF Certified for use with potable water.

Reducer Bushing for Schedule 40 PVC Pipe (Mipt x Fipt) Buy at: http://www.flexiblepvc.net/Reducer_Bushing_MIPT_x_FIPT_p/reducer-bushing-mxf.htm If you have a larger threaded fitting or opening and you need to insert a smaller threaded pipe into it, you would use a Schedule 40 Mipt x Fipt reducer bushing. Reducer bushings can fit your needs when your project requires the connection of pipes of two different diameters. These fittings are slightly different than couplings, although couplings can also connect two pipes of different sizes. Bushings, unlike couplings, tend to fit "inside" another fitting much like a "spigot" fitting, allowing the user to place the bushing into the larger fitting, thus reducing the diameter that the larger fitting requires. This fitting has a male pipe thread (mipt) on one and and allows another, smaller male pipe thread to be screwed into it. For example, if you are using a 2" x 1" Schedule 40 mipt x fipt reducer bushing, you would first screw the male part of the bushing into a 2" fitting and then simply screw your 1" male threaded pipe or fitting into it. All of our Schedule 40 fittings are NSF rated 14 & 61, which means they are certified for use with potable (drinking) water. Maximum temperature is 140°F.
