PVC Ball Valves 3/4", 1 ",
1-1/4", 1-1/2", 2", 3" and 4" PVC ball valves are constructed of quality materials using virgin schedule 80 PVC EPDM seats and seals. Rated 150 PSI at 72 degrees Fahrenheit water temperature. Full port flow opening, quarter turn operation. Fit schedule 40 and 80 pipes. Solvent ends comply with ASTM D2466. Materials meet NSF standards. Usually ships the next business day.
A tee is used to make right angle connections between three pipes. The Tee is so-named because it is shaped like the letter T. A coupling is designed to join, or couple, two pieces of PVC pipes together. The coupling will have the same opening on both sides and will only accommodate two pieces of pipe. You can use a coupling to join different pipe sizes by inserting the proper size bushings. Adapters come in two types, male adapters and female adapter, and are designed to couple threaded pipe connections to a piece of "slip" PVC pipe. The adapter will have a threaded interior if it's a female or a threaded exterior if it's a male adapter. The other opening will be completely smooth in order to accommodate the "slip" section of pipe. Bushings are typically used to change the pipe size of a fitting. Bushings come in slip by slip, slip by thread and thread by thread. Bushings come in many different sizes. A cap fits over the end of a slip PVC pipe. The cap stops all water flow through the end of the pipe.

Thermoplastic fittings do not carry the same pressure ratings as equivalent sized pipe. In fact, fittings have never been pressure rated. Fitting standards (ASTM D-2464, D-2467, D-2466, F-439 and F-437) only require a 25% thicker wall (in the body) than equivalent-sized pipe. When a system is pressurized, fittings have areas that contain higher stresses than pipe despite the increase in wall thickness. Testing and field experience suggest that systems with socket fittings be reduced in pressure by 40% of the equivalent pipe size pressure rating. For example, if 2” sch 40 pipe is pressure rated at 280 psi then 2” sch 40 socket fittings should therefore never be subjected to pressures higher than 168 psi. This 40% reduction still does not give fittings a pressure rating but it does give the system designer a maximum pressure not to exceed.
