Asked by Dan April 17, 2021

Answers

It is possible to tighten both sides of the 3/4 in. x 3 in. MIP Brass Nipple Fitting at once but it is not recommended because it would be difficult to get both sides tight enough to not leak. We recommend tightening the ends one at a time, so another method would be needed to attach the valve to the pipe nipple if the valve cannot rotate.

Answers

Yes, the only time you have to be cautious is potable (drinking) water. Make sure there is no lead in the metal makeup of the pipe. Also, support every thing because the cutting of threads weakens the nipple.

Is this fitting lead-free or considered lead-free compliant?

Used to add a water pressure gauge to a well pump. Needed it offset from the main line so I could see/ monitor the readings. The threads on the two (2) ends of the pipe nipple have a different number of turns (!?!). So, the male end with more turns leaked a little. Did not want to crank down more on the female connection so more Teflon tape improved the situation; leak is tolerable but not completely fixed.. Will have to go back to Home Depot for another one on my next trip there. Will pay more attention to this possible defect when purchasing.

I purchased 2 of these brass nipples, and one of them leaked through the threads. After inspecting I found 2 gouges inside of the nipple which was deep enough to cut through the threads. Home Depot made things right by swapping it out for a new one, but it still cost time and labor.

Natural gas is normally run through an iron pipe, but when plumbing an outdoor grill, iron rusts (even if painted). So where it is visible, switch to this brass pipe, and the installation will look great for many years.

The close makes a difference! I used this one to connect a whole-house water treatment system, and the extra little bit of saved width to the overall system does make a difference for servicing our filters—the left-most filter would have been more difficult to remove if I had to move the whole system towards the water heater. I used thread tape on both sides, and tightened it up as a whole system using the street elbow. It has been over a month and I don’t have any issues. Lead free is a must for our water supply.
