Importance of PEX Couplings in Plumbing Applications
Effective PEX to PEX connections can be made only with PEX couplings. These are fitting type units which are used for connecting PEX tubing with another type of PEX fitting components. Such units are present in various different sizes and are used for making distinct kind of connections.
Homebuilders and contractors make use of these units in order to obtain different kinds of connections with PEX tubing. These are utilized to alter sizes, lengthen a run, split off a single water tubing into various branches and to turn tight corners. All such crucial activities are carried on with PEX couplings which are why they form an integral part of a plumbing mechanism. Many times, these units are also used to alter size of a PEX line so that it can serve desired functionality. Size of the line can be increased or decreased to an appropriate level with use of these units proficiently.
‘Stop’ is another name of these components which has been given to it due to its distinct shape. There are some couplings which have their one end closed while keeping the other end completely open. The Stop PEX couplings are utilized for areas where there is a requirement to add further supply lines. With these units you can branched out a single line into more numbers which can be opened and closed at different time intervals and according to requirement. Normally such couplings are used where water supply is required only on temporary basis. In such situation, you can safely close off a valve for some time period.
All these units which are used to serve various functionalities are made up with brass and copper. They are polished well which makes them less prone to corrosion and being getting damaged. In addition to this, these units also help in maintaining direction of flow of water thereby making it easy to obtain water for necessary uses. Water can be made to flow both uni-directionally and bi-directionally with these structures.
If you too want to extend length of your PEX tubing or want to alter its direction then you can do all this with PEX couplings fittings.
