PVC fittings or poly vinyl chloride units are items that are used with PEX tubing in numerous plumbing systems. Traditionally, there were items made with copper used in any kind of plumbing system, but to overcome their limitations, now items made with PVC are used.
Just like any PEX fitting, these units are also inclusive of other pieces also such as elbows, couplings and tees. Although they are similar in appearance to PEX fittings but there is one difference that they are made up with PVC. This is a plastic like material that possesses high resistance to breakages and leakages which is why it is used in all kinds of applications that require great strength and long lasting durability. For this reason, it is used for making all kinds of PVC fittings that can be used along with tubing and piping systems.
Mainly couplings, tees and elbows are considered as fittings that are used in carrying out the plumbing systems. They are used as fittings to join two or more connections or to extend a single pipe line to the requisite length. This helps in supplying water to the desired location. In addition to this, the PVC fittings are also units to be used for increasing efficiency of a water plumbing mechanism. They are robust yet compatible units that can be installed with ease. It is also easy to supply water through them without any kind of noise, thereby improving the overall working of the water supply system.
PVC is considered as one of the finest material to be used in water supply systems after PEX. It is not only robust and strong like it but it is also flexible and can be used for any kind of water supply system. Best thing is to make use of PVC fittings and PEX tubing in a single system so as to make it more strong and versatile.
