Grainger and DWV

Unread postAuthor: Jimmy K » Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:51 am

So I was buying fittings from Grainger for my cannon the other day and noticed that they had DWV fittings rated for 1500psi:

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/Street-Elbow-1WKD4

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/Male-Adapter-1WKG7

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/Elbow-1WKC5

Now this obviously wasn't right, so I called their tech support and they called the manufacturer, who guaranteed them up to 150psi. That's one bad typo. They're in the process of changing the titles now.

It makes me wonder if anyone bought them for high pressure applications... :?

most people that are working with that much pressure know what they are doing and would probably be buying from a store specializing in high pressure pipes and fittings.

Most people who have need of 1500 PSI would never even consider a plastic, especially (relatively) large diameter plastic pipes like PVC.
