How do you connect a brass ball valve to pvc pipe?

Unread postAuthor: crcowboyfan » Mon Feb 27, 2006 9:08 pm

Like the title says, how do you connect a brass ball valve to pvc pipe? Is it threaded, or do you use some sort of glue?

Thanks

You will need a male adapter to glue on the pvc pipe and screw the other end in the ball valve ( if the vall is threaded).

There are essentialy 3 ways to connect PVC to brass:
Tap a threaded hole in your PVC, making your own threads.
Use threaded reducing bushings/adapters to get threads.
Use compression couplings or something to connect normal PVC pipe to normal brass pipe. (do these exist? I don't know, but probably...)
...in rough order of my preference.
