          Q:We put in a new water line which created far more water pressure now and the lines to the showers keep blowing off, can I replace the plastic elbows with the brass now since they do have a higher psi than the plastic?
          by|Aug 13, 2022
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Our brass and plastic fittings are manufactured to the same spec and standard in regard to working pressure ratings. The water pressure issue you are experiencing may be because of a faulty PRV, or no PRV, within your application. For further questions, please give us a call at 888-229-2874.

            Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly
            Being new to PEX work I loaded up on Apollo tools and materials. Everything has worked fine, except for this Apollo Brass PEX-B Barb x 1/2 in Female Swivel 90-Degree Elbow. I installed it per the directions, hand-tightening, and a 1/4 turn with a wrench. I did a hand-twist confirmation on all the connections. That was when this item literally fell apart in my hand (see image). I spliced in the 29-year-old fitting I'd removed, which worked.
            by
              Do not use a wrench to tighten. Hand tighten only.
              I followed the recommendation of the Apollo sales rep in the Q&A section by hand tightening and then tighten an additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn with a wrench. The white plastic portion broke and separated from the brass fitting with just a slight amount of pressure past hand tight. Just hand tighten firmly. I recommend using teflon tape and/or pipe putty as well.

                Needed a 90 degree elbow to mate to a shower valve, MPT to PEX. This was all that was available at HD. I was impressed with the quality of the seal at the twist-end of the fitting - very pliable and seals very well.
