Both McAlpine and Aquaflow pipes can be moulded with heat. Join waste pipes simply and effectively in bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and en-suites by using the solvent weld method. Our range of solvent weld pipe and solvent weld fittings are popular with tradesmen and plumbers. We stock a huge selection of solvent weld pipe fittings in a variety of sizes from 30mm to 50mm. Securely attach waste pipe to floors, ceilings or walls using a compatible pipe clip or alternatively, direct the waste pipe around bends or corners with a pipe bend at 90, 92.5 or 135 degrees.
A tee, the most common pipe fitting, is used to combine or divide fluid flow.Tees can connect pipes of different diameters or change the direction of a pipe run, or both. Available in a variety of materials, sizes and finishes, they may also be used to transport two-fluid mixtures. Tees may be equal or unequal in size of their three connections, with equal tees the most common. In short radius elbow, centreline radius is the same as the nominal size of the pipe or you can say one times the diameter of the pipe.
The flare nut, which had previously been installed over the tubing, is then tightened over the fitting to force the tapered surfaces tightly together. Flare connectors are typically made of brass or plastic, but stainless steel or other materials may be used. A solvent is applied to PVC, CPVC, ABS or other plastic piping to partially dissolve and fuse the adjacent surfaces of piping and fitting. Solvent welding is usually used with a sleeve-type joint to connect pipe and fittings made of the same material.
Cutting rings with elasto- mer seal work according to the same functional principle, but they are furnished with additional elastomer seals to increase operating reliability further still. “Ordering was flawless, website straight to the point, shipping was quick and as stated, product was exactly as ordered.” Log in to TheConstructor to ask questions, answer people’s questions, write articles & connect with other people.

A tee is steadier than a cross; it behaves like a three-legged stool, and a cross behaves like a four-legged stool. A fitting or adapter is used in pipe systems to connect straight sections of pipe or tube, adapt to different sizes or shapes, and for other purposes such as regulating fluid flow. These fittings are used in plumbing to manipulate the conveyance of water, gas, or liquid waste in domestic or commercial environments, within a system of pipes or tubes. Pipe fittings are essential for all plumbing applications.
McAlpine valves, such as the McAlpine VP50P air admittance valve, features a dual-fit synthetic rubber finger seal for 3” or 4” soil pipe. Direct the flow of water outside a property with overflow pipes. Our range of PVC overflow pipes are available to buy in 30m, in either black or white. Aquaflow pipes come in a variety of sizes and shapes to complement the property design.
It must be installed in an easily accessible place for adjustment, replacement, and repair. A trap primer, a specialized valve, is usually connected to a clean-water supply in addition to a DWV system. Because of the dual connection, it must be designed to resist the accidental backflow of contaminated water. Underground piping systems for landscaping drainage or the disposal of stormwater or groundwater also use low-pressure gravity flow, so fittings for these systems resemble larger-scale DWV fittings.
