Carbon steel pipe taps are designed to clean and or re-thread damaged or jammers pipe threads. The nominal size of a Pipe Tap is that of the pipe fitting to be tapped, not the actual size of the tap. The thread tapers 3/4 of an inch per foot. All Pipe Taps furnished with a 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 thread chamfer. NPT threads require the use of a sealer like Teflon tape or pipe compound.

    Q:Will this work for a 2? PVC tub drain?

    Answer This Question

    A:  I do not know the thread size for the {PVC tub drain}. You would have to measure And use a screw pitch gage to determine the correct size. {I think it might be a NPS thread Which is a parallel thread and not a taper thread as a NPT}. Thank you

        There is NO taper to this tool. It will not cut threads. So disappointed as I had to order it online and am now told that I have to return it to a store ……60 miles and my time for a defective product?

        Tool was fine. A 'bottoming' tap would have been more suitable to my application.

        Works as advertised! Old sealant was clogging up the threads on the plug for our swimming pool’s main drain. (Incidentally, we were surprised to learn that our swimming pool tech does not have something like this in his inventory… you’d think this would be a critical item to have on hand.) This tap very easily removed all old sealant and debris to allow for a solid, waterproof seal with our new drain plug. Delivery ended up being faster than initially projected. Great experience purchasing this item!
