Philmac Fittings

Philmac fittings come pre-assembled and ready to use so there is no need to disassemble the fitting or prepare the pipe. No solvent cementing or special tools are needed. Simply insert the pipe into the fitting until you feel the first point of resistance and then tighten the nut. Visual stops and gradually increasing mechanical resistance as the nut is turned prevents over-tightening.

Philmac fittings compact size makes installation easy in confined spaces, and Philmac 3G fittings are engineered to avoid pipe twist during installation, reducing the risk of untightening previously-installed joints – a constant risk with brass fittings.
