Questions & Answers

5Questions6Answers

Will this thread onto a 1/2" BSP male fitting?

Asked by Bob August 1, 2020
1
Answer

Technically, you would want to use a 1/2 in. BSP female fitting to connect to the 1/2 in. BSP male fitting and a 1/2 in. PEX male adapter to connect to the Apollo 1/2 in. Brass PEX Barb x 1/2 in. Female Swivel 90° Elbow because NPT threads are tapered at 60° and BSP threads are tapered at 55° However, if your application is not high in pressure you should be able to screw the 1/2" BSP male fitting far enough into the Apollo 1/2 in. Brass PEX Barb x 1/2 in. Female Swivel 90° Elbow to create a leak free connection. Just make sure to use Plumber's or Teflon Tape on the threads.

How tight should the threaded female connection be ?

I really like these for one purpose only. When I Putin a shower valve on one of the rentals I use them. Normal renters are rough on valves and these allow for easy repair. We also remodel them about every 7 to 10 years so we can replace them Downside is rubber decay from chlorine in water can cause leaking.

Worked as expected. Not sure I'd call it excellent (5 stars) since the expectation is that it functions correctly, which it does. I suppose the best endorsement I can give it is that I would purchase it again.
