They say development and construction are cousins. And with a lot of construction happening, it is but natural that piping, tubing and fittings are familiar and commonly used words (or rather aspects). One of the most widely used accessories is the segment of pipe fittings and connectors. Like the name implies, pipe connectors and fittings are accessories which provide 'connector mechanism' to pipes and related piping aspects. The plumbing and water solutions' sector requires a lot of mechanisms where pipes need to be joined for a proper flow.
Combining working mechanics and a layman's understanding, fittings are accessories via which pipes could be joined, installed, terminated or closed, wherever necessary. These come in different shapes, sizes, standards and all these aspects largely depend on the type of connection required. There are hundreds of types of fittings, some customized some regular but all these fittings, depending upon the threads get classified either as male threaded or female threaded (female threads appear on the inside whereas male threads appear outside of threaded fittings).
There is a whole range of pipes and fittings that are available in a variety of materials; PVC being one of them. PVC is an acronym for polyvinyl chloride which is a type of plastic (thermoplastic polymer to be precise). Along with polyethylene and polypropylene, PVC manages to rule the world of plastic applications. And unlike other materials PVC pipes have more advantages as compared to drawbacks.
PVC is a popular flavor in the piping segment principally because of the follows reasons:
All in all, PVC pipes offer safe, durable and better flowing solutions.
