A: Hello, we recommend checking local plumbing code prior to starting any projects. This type of compression coupling is designed to repair steel pipes, and is not made to transition between pipe materials. We hope this helps with your project.
A: Hello James, this will not work as a coupling to attach to PEX or PVC as this coupling is designed for metallic pipes. Plastic pipes have a high chance of cracking over time as they are not designed to withstand the pressure placed on them. We hope this helps with your project.
A: Hello nissan, this fitting is not suited for gas applications. We recommend checking local plumbing codes for what is recommended for your application. We hope this helps with your project.
A: Hey ROCCO, we do not recommend using this compression coupling to convert galvanized pipe to PVC pipe. This compression coupling is designed to repair galvanized pipes; PVC pipes are not designed to stand up to this type of long term pressure. The Home Depot carries several types of adapters (push fit, or other special conversion adapters) that will help you achieve your project goal. We hope this helps with your project.
