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.

13 Sep 11 Biogas tank fittings

Building home scale biogas systems is deceptively simple. The biggest frustration actually turns out to be finding the @#$#@ tank fittings. In the US and Germany they are specialty order items and are usually enormously expensive — they can be more than 10 bucks for a half inch tank fitting and more than 50 for a 2 inch fitting . We try to buy ours in packages whenever we travel to Egypt where they cost what they should — about 75 cents for the half inch and no more than 5 bucks for the 2 inch. Basically though, one doesn’t really need tank fittings — you can make your own from any threaded pipe, some rubber washers (which can be cut out of an inner tube) and some locking nuts. The trouble turns out to be finding inexpensive locking nuts. Those little pieces can cost an arm and a leg in Europe and the US, and even the stupid little rubber gaskets can be as much as a couple of bucks each. Highway robbery! Galvanized locking nuts are a buck or two — but try finding the plastic ones! If you do, however, I suggest you stock up on locking nuts of various sizes and rubber rings of various sizes. Then you can work with threaded plumbing pipes to make your own (with washers for support). We’ve also found that we can salvage tank fittings from some toilet bowls, so look there too!
