Galvanized pipe is a popular choice for water supply lines due to its corrosion resistance and relatively low cost. However, it cannot be directly connected to PVC without using an adapter. To connect galvanized pipe to PVC without threads, use a coupling or reducer fitting that has the same diameter as the galvanized pipe and the PVC pipe. Slip the fitting over the end of the galvanized pipe and then glue the PVC pipe to the fitting.
How To Connect Galvanized Pipe Without Threads To Pvc
Galvanized pipe is a metal pipe that has been coated with zinc. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a type of plastic. One way to connect galvanized pipe without threads to PVC is to use a coupling. A coupling is a fitting that can be used to join two pieces of pipe together. Another way to connect galvanized pipe without threads to PVC is to use a reducer. A reducer is a fitting that can be used to decrease the size of one pipe opening
-Tape measure -PVC primer -PVC cement -Pipe wrench – hacksaw
- Using a hacksaw or pipe cutter, cut the pvc pipe to the desired length
- Cut the galvanized pipe to the desired length
- Apply pvc
- Sandpaper the ends of both pipes until they are smooth
– If a threaded connection is not possible, use a coupling or other connector to join the pipes – Make sure that the galvanized pipe is completely clean and free of any burrs or other sharp edges before connecting it to the PVC – Apply pipe tape to the threads of the PVC connector before screwing it into the galvanized pipe – Tighten the connector until it is snug
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Join Pipes Without Threads?
There are a few ways to join pipes without threads. One way is to use a union. Another way is to use a clamp.
How Do You Cap A Galvanized Pipe Without Threads?
There are a few ways to cap a galvanized pipe without threads. One way is to use a rubber gasket and a clamp. Another way is to use a rubber gasket and screws.
How Do You Join Non Threaded Galvanized Pipe?
Non threaded galvanized pipe can be joined using a variety of methods, including welding, soldering, or compression fittings.
Galvanized pipe can be connected to PVC without threads by using a coupling. The coupling is inserted over the end of the galvanized pipe and then the PVC pipe is inserted into the other end of the coupling. The coupling will create a seal between the two pipes and connect them together.
