Any education on drainage products has to start with pipes and their accessories. First, you need to understand a rigid product like pipe needs fittings to make it flexible, adaptable and capable of changing directions.
The need for flexibility in buried piping is one of the advantages of mechanical joint fittings. Flanged fittings, used principally for inside installations where positive restraint is needed and where future modifications may be necessary, are seldom used in buried services because rigid joints can shear.
Fittings for reducing or increasing pipeline size and fittings that permit multiple pipe directions are very useful.
There are fittings for drainage pipe, poly pipe and ductile iron. In fact, when it comes to drainage products, there are more types, shapes, weights and sizes of fittings than almost anyone could imagine. We have a fitting selection for every need.
