PVC Connector Sizing

**PLEASE NOTE THESE FITTINGS ARE IMPERIAL (inch) IPS (Iron Pipe Size / Internal Pipe Size) SIZED, NOT METRIC (mm) THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE!***

The size of the fitting is classified by internal diameter of a pipe not the fitting itself. ie. A 1″ corner piece will fit a pipe of an internal diameter of 1″ BUT the actual 1″ fitting size itself, would be deceptively much larger.

All PVC fittings are of industry standard water pipe type (except perspex) – cheap, proven, reliable, reasonably easily available and internationally certified.

The PVC fittings are white in colour.

For PVC connector orders from the USA are shipped directly from our US distributor to you and not to us first (all other international sales will come from us). This saves on shipping and handling costs and means it gets to you much faster.

Please remember that the fittings are designed for US Imperial sized pipe because the market is enormous in the US and these fittings are very popular there.
These fittings will not fit Metric sized pipe or any pipe that has metric sizing printed on it
, even if printing on pipe makes mention of Imperial measurements as well as metric – if it makes any mention of mm’s it won’t fit in the fittings due to international standards variances.

If you wish to use Metric sized pipe, it can be done, but, you will need to either chamfer down the diameter of the pipe slightly or increase the girth/width by glueing a thin piece of PVC or Styrene sheet around the pipe so it fits snugly into the fittings.
The most commonly available pipe sizes in the UK are 1 1/2″ (One and a Half Inches) and 2″ (Two Inches) – Mainly used in the Swimming Pool industry.
