My pump whole house filtration fixed system was not compatible for easy replacement of filtration equipment. Inserting these slip joints in strategic locations enables more efficient removal of component sectors such as a particulate filter housing replacement rather than tearing out the whole system to do it. I installed three of these slip joint in three locations and they work extremely well. This was an inexpensive upgrade to lessen the work time needed to replace filter components. If time and money is important and less work to handle a filtration system this is the way to go. Attached is my system before slip joint installation. However it is added to give the reader a better understanding of how hard in a fixed system it would be to exchange components without slip joints.

I won't be buying again
I installed this union thinking I could do repairs in the future on my irrigation valve if needed. It worked for about a day and a half then sheared off on the threading. This was installed on the supply side with normal pressure. I eventually went to a complete glue job since the reliability of these are in question and so far that's working. Don't trust these weak Chinese unions.

    This union worked like a champ to join my sprinkler manifold to the house water supply. With the union in place it is easy to unhook and sprinkler manifold and replace valves when needed. The compact size of the union worked great in my tight space. It does not take up as much room as other couplers do such as repair couplers. I hope I don't have to repair any more sprinkler valves but if I do I will not have a much easier time since I can take this union apart and fix the valves.

    This fitting was easy to install and worked perfectly. I used a pair of them to make my pool sand filter easy to open. I just remove approx 3/4 inch of pipe and glued them in. There was plenty of spring in my pipes which made the job easier.

    This union was just what I needed. Used them to pipe my pool pump and filter. No more hoses. Easy to install. No more leaks or fighting with clamps. Now when winter comes. Unscrew them to move everything into the shed.

    irrigation repair under ground mainline (always under pressure)
    I used the SLIPxSLIP versions. I installed 2 of these at 2 different repairs. I'm hoping they work. I had a slight leak, clearly coming from the threaded joint. I turned the water off and tightened it a little bit more by hand, and no more leak. It's under pressure all the time, a main line in my irrigation system. I'll leave the ground exposed another day and then cover it up. I feel like this makes sense to use for a repair, but the rubber seal worries me - will it last for 47 more years (I'll be 100 and no longer care). What I did: I cut the main line to remove the break, then two elbows sending the line upward, then two more elbows bringing those lines together. If I did not use this UNION, then I'd have to push the PVC together at the final connection, without twisting 1/4 turn, and that worries me, worries me that I won't get a good weld. So, I chose to try this UNION, and I'll update if I have a blow-out or trouble. It says it's rated for 150-PSI. SEE IMAGE Teach me something.

      There’s not much to say about a simple plumbing PVC fitting, I think the design is excellent because it’s to be tightened by hand! That’s very good!

      These are not a good choice for a spray-type sprinkler system. I tried to use these to make future replacement of sprinkler valves easier, but I had the same experience as "Looie" described in his review. The threads are large and loose, and the union simply pops apart when there's any kind of surge of pressure (such as when one of the other valves in the same set turns off). These might work okay for a low pressure application (such as drip lines), but I don't recommend them for a spray-type sprinkler system which handles full residential water pressure. I now have to cut the pipes again and remount the valves using the normal PVC glue method. I am NOT a happy camper!

        Great quality, perfect fit, easy to install. I installed this 1 inch union on the supply line to one of my well pressure tanks. The fitting at the tank was leaking and I needed to repair it and there was no way to do so without cutting the pipe. Now, if the tank ever needs to be serviced or replaced, it can easily be disconnected without cutting the pipes.

        I purchased 5 of these unions to use for replacing a cartridge pool filter system in case I ever needed to replace it or the connected valves again. There was another brand (same SKU), but Homewerks Worldwide union had fine thread coupler vs coarse thread, so it was easier to tighten.

        It's a decent product decent quality. I only needed half of the union because I rerouted some lines to go with the multiples of unions I had purchased at home Depot prior to these. The problem is the threads don't match with the kent brand, and and they are a bit smaller.

        I wanted a product that would enable me to easily connect and disconnect the intake pipe from the pond to my pump instead of slipping the intake pipe over on extension from the pump and then using clamps. I installed the PVC Slip X Slip Union in May, 2018. It is now August, 2018, and the product has worked find. Initially I thought that I had a very small leak, but I did not know where it was coming from. It could have been from some other part of the overall connection and not the product in review. I should point out that other connectors and the right type of glue have to be purchased. These other parts have to be the right size. The part that connected to the pump came in various angles, which I found to be very helpful. It was not hard to glue the connectors to the PVC Slip X Slip Union in order to complete the set up. There is an "O" ring that is not seen in the picture of the product. Care must be taken to make sure that the "O" ring does not fall out when screwing the two parts of the Slip X Slip Union together. With this product I was able to install the pipe into the pond and start the pump myself. The price of the PVC Slip X Slip Union, other parts, and glue was much less than one service call. I am very pleased with the product and would recommend it.

        I used 2 of these when I installed my new pool pump. This made it easy to remove the pump to fix a drip that otherwise would have been a real pain. They seemed expensive, but I'm glad I got them.

        Standard PVC part, what could be special about it. Some for your requests are stupid, waste of electrons.

              We used to repair a broken irrigation pipeline. By installing this unit, we saved having to dig up and replace several feet of 2" line which had split a threaded fitting next to an irrigation valve. As an aside, we now have a way to remove the valve in the future without having to cut the piping.
