PVC Spigot x Barb Insert Adapter
Durable PVC Slip Spigot x Barb Tubing Adapter can be used to join PVC pipe with slip fitting to poly tubing. The slip spigot connection is the same size as PVC pipe and will slip into a PVC slip fitting of the same nominal size. A slip fitting that can also be used as a slip socket connection will slip over the next size smaller PVC pipe.
Please Note: Gray PVC insert fittings are made of the same substances as schedule 40 and schedule 80 PVC are made of. This means a durable long lasting fitting. Insert fittings are normally used with flexible pipe, hose or tubing. Simply slip the barbed insert tip all the way into the end of the flexible pipe, hose, or tubing. Multiple sharp barbs provide a tight grip on the flexible materials to create the seal. It is recommended to clamp over the barbed fittings to provide a reliable leak-proof seal. Proper clamping technique is to place the clamp directly over the barb area and tighten. For additional size specifications see the Spec sheet linked to item page above.
Selecting the correct size fittings to match your PVC pipe can be confusing if you do not already know what size PVC pipe you have. All plumbing grade PVC should have size and rating information imprinted on the outside of the pipe. PVC pipe is named for the inside diameter, commonly referred to as "a nominal size". If not able to locate this information then simply measuring the inside or outside diameter will help you determine the correct pipe size using the chart below.
PVC Pipe Size Table
|Nominal PVC Pipe Size||1/2"||3/4"||1"||1 1/4"||1 1/2"||2"|
|Average Inside Diameter||0.622"||0.824"||1.049"||1.380"||1.610"||2.047"|
|Actual Outside Diameter||0.840"||1.050"||1.345"||1.660"||1.900"||2.375"|
Once you determine your PVC pipe size then fitting selection is easy - just match the nominal pipe size to the corresponding fitting size. Example: If your pipe measures 0.824" ID (inside diameter) which is 3/4" PVC pipe, you will select 3/4" PVC fitting.
