From Adapters to Elbows to Plugs and More! A Quick Look at Different Kinds of Irrigation Pipe Fittings
We know that no two jobs your business takes on will be the same. Irrigation systems are far from a one size fits all operation and we’re prepared to stock you with all the best irrigation pipe fittings for even your most complicated configurations. With so many products out there, it’s important to know exactly what your options are. So let’s take a look at some of the more common pipe fittings you’ll need to get the work done right.
Male and Female Adapters
Available in both Poly and PVC, male and female adapters allow you to connect two similar threads by converting the end to add a male or female threaded piece accordingly.
Elbow fittings connect your pipes at a 90-degree angle to allow for those sharp direction changes in your irrigation configuration.
Caps and Plugs
PVC Caps and Plugs are both irrigation pipe fittings used to seal off the end of a run of pipe. A cap will sit or thread over the outside of a pipe while a plug threads into the pipe.
Irrigation Swing joints attach the sprinkler to the irrigation system on a flexible joint that allows for a wide range of adjustments. These pipe fittings simplify installation by giving you a wide range to set the perfect height and eliminates the need for finding a specific height riser.
Poly Pipe and PVC Pipe - Which is the right choice for you?
As you’re shopping your choices for the right pipes and fittings, the main options you’ll see are PVC and Poly tubing/ Poly pipe fittings, or Polyethylene pipe fittings. While PVC is the stronger material, one of the main benefits of using Poly is its flexibility. This makes it versatile and easier to use no matter how intricate an irrigation system you’re working on. For this reason, it requires fewer fittings than PVC. And while both PVC and Poly fittings have been manufactured to be strong and prevent leakage, fewer fittings mean fewer possible failure points. However, both are resistant to corrosion, giving them an extended service life. The cost savings of long-lasting products is a tremendous benefit to contractors and clients alike.
You’ll also find some fittings specific to Poly tubing that you will not see when working with PVC supplies. For instance, some Poly saddles require zero installation tools and can be added to your set-up in literally seconds. These brilliant fittings will simplify your job by allowing easy access to the pipe to transport water to a different irrigation head while maintaining optimal sprinkler head flow.
In the end, both are great options and widely considered easier to install and maintain alternatives to the traditional metal pipe and fittings that once dominated the market. Gone are the days of constant maintenance due to corrosion and leaky pipes thanks to these superior PVC and Poly pipes and pipe fittings.
