Why does this say "for outdoor use only"? Is it safe to use with cold potable water?

Asked by Trim March 20, 2019

Answers

No, it is not. Over time chemicals in the plastic may be released into the water which are not safe.

What does "Close" mean? Others are ½" x 6 or other length. What does "close" mean?

I wish I still had this piece to measure the center non-threaded bit for you, it's got to be 1/4 " or less. I screwed one side into a sprinkler head and the other side into a PVC elbow, they might as well have been touching.This is basically a female to male converter, good for keeping things as close together as possible.

what is lenght?

1/2" dia, but why doesn't it say/show a length (other than close)?

Close means it is the shortest it can be, just the threads from each end with no unthreaded pipe in between, or very little. the two fittings you are connecting will be close upon each other.

It's a little piece of plastic pipe. Not much to go wrong. No features to discuss. Just buy whatever is cheapest, especially if you're buying a load of them.

Worked fine for me. Original installer used pipe dope so the riser was trashed.

New material used is way too soft! Stripped easily and other times stuck too tightly. When trying to remove using a nipple extractor it wouldn’t work due to soft materials not giving the extractor something to bite into. Buyer beware.

The Orbit PVC Risers are great to make up just a little distance where needed. Honestly though, this one is so short that once it's installed you can't easily take it back apart. Let's say you want to test or dry fit the piece, so you screw one side in. Once it's hand tight, the only thing left to grab is the other threaded side which slips in my hand when I try to twist it. So you get a wrench or pliers or something to grip it and make it turn, but now you've likely damaged the threads. You'll either love this, or hate this.
