1. Choose the Right PP Fitting for your Application

The first step in using a PP fitting is choosing the right fitting for your application. PP fittings come in many different types, including elbows, tees, couplings, and adapters. Make sure you know the size, shape, and material of the pipe you are working with before selecting a PP fitting. It is important to check the working pressure and temperature range of the fitting as well.

2. Inspect the Fitting

Before use, inspect the PP fitting for any blemishes, deformations, or damage. PP fittings can be damaged during storage or transportation, so make sure to check that the fitting is in good condition before use. Check for any signs of cracking or distortion, as these can be signs of defects that can affect the fitting’s performance.

3. Prepare the Fitting and Pipe

Before joining the PP fitting and the pipe, make sure to properly prepare both. Cut the pipe to the correct length and make sure the ends are clean and smooth. Remove any burrs or rough edges that can cause leaks or damage to the fitting. Ensure that the surface of the fitting is also clean and free of debris.

4. Join the Fitting and Pipe

To join the PP fitting and pipe, use a suitable method, such as solvent welding, fusion welding, or mechanical joining. Make sure to follow the recommended joining procedure for the specific type of PP fitting and pipe. For example, for solvent welding, use the recommended cement and apply it evenly to both the fitting and the pipe. After joining, allow the cement to dry before using.

5. Test the Connection

After joining, it is important to test the connection for leaks or other defects. Use the recommended testing method, such as a hydrostatic pressure test or air pressure test, to ensure that the connection is secure and able to handle the required pressure. Make sure to check for leaks or damage before putting the system into operation.



PP fittings are an essential component of many plumbing and piping systems. By following these steps, you can properly use PP fittings and ensure a reliable, safe, and efficient installation. Remember to always choose the right PP fitting for your application, inspect it before use, prepare both the fitting and pipe, properly join them, and test the connection before use. With proper usage, PP fittings can provide many years of reliable and efficient service.
