Unlike metal, PVC fittings never rust, scale, or pit and will provide many years of maintenance-free service and extended system life. PVC fittings are used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in irrigation and drainage. PVC is generally inert to most mineral acids, bases, salts and parafinic hydrocarbon solutions. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, and sizes
