CPVC adapter is a plumbing component used to connect pipes made of different materials or sizes in a CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) plumbing system. CPVC adapters typically have a female socket or threaded end on one side and a male threaded or solvent-weld end on the other. This allows for the connection of CPVC pipes to pipes or fittings with different types of connections.
CPVC is a thermoplastic material commonly used in residential and commercial plumbing systems due to its durability and resistance to corrosion. CPVC adapters are essential for adapting and connecting CPVC pipes to various fixtures, valves, or other plumbing components in a plumbing system. The choice between a threaded or solvent-weld end depends on the specific requirements of the plumbing installation.
