22 Nov 11 PEX Fittings, #06848: MALE ADAPTER 3/4″ X 3/4″ MPT

PEX Fittings,FLAIR-IT MALE ADAPTER 3/4" X 3/4" MPT. CONNECTS 3/4" PEX OR POLYBUTYLENE AND 3/4" FEMALE THREADS. WHEN CONNECTING 3/4" POLYBUTYLENE WITH THIS FITTING, ALWAYS USE PART # 06792: 3/4" PEX TO POLYBUTYLENE TRANSITION INSERT. THE WALL OF 3/4" POLYBUTYLENE IS THINNER THAN PEX AND REQUIRES THIS INSERT TO ENSURE A COMPLETE SEAL. USING THIS FITTING ON 3/4" POLYBUTYLENE WITHOUT THE INSERT COULD LIKELY CAUSE A LEAK. FLAIR-IT FITTINGS ARE AN EXCELLENT SOLUTION FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF HOME PLUMBING REPAIR. THEY REQUIRE NO SPECIAL TOOLS. INSTALLATION IS EASY: SLIDE THE NUT ALONG THE PEX PIPE, ROCK THE FITTING INTO THE PEX PIPE, SLIDE THE NUT BACK ALONG THE PIPE AND HAND TIGHTEN THE NUT ONTO THE FITTING. THE DOUBLE THREADED NUT WILL THREAD ONTO THE PIPE AND THE FITTING, FORMING A TIGHT SEAL. IF THE FITTING LEAKS, TIGHTEN THE NUT A FEW MORE TURNS. YOU MAY NEED TO USE THE FLAIR-IT WRENCH IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL LEVERAGE.

    Yes you can use this with Polybutylene but you have to install the 06792 adapter in the Polybutylene first.

    Can you use that to repair polybutylene?
