Swimming Pool Socket
ABS Solvent socket is usually referred to as a Pipe to Pipe socket. Made from 100% Virgin ABS this is a Class C fitting, designed to joint two straight lengths of pipe together in a double solvent welded joint. Available in 2 standard sizes, 1.5" (most domestic installations) and 2" for larger pools or semi-commercial installations.
Please be aware that swimming pool pipe work is sized from the INSIDE and subsequently LOOKS bigger from the outside (most people wrongly believe their pipe work is 2"). We have placed a picture under the PDF download section showing the 2 common sizes in relation to everyday standard AA & 9V Duracell batteries as an easily referable scale.
Please see our downloads section for exploded views of all the various fittings showing the different configurations for sockets, threads, male & female fittings.
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is an extremely robust thermoplastic material which is ideal for swimming pool installations.
