Swimming Pool Socket Union
ABS socket union female Solvent to female solvent socket and is made from 100% Virgin ABS this is a Class C fitting, designed to connect 2 pieces of pipe together whilst allowing the flexibility to undo the large union nut & seperate the pipe.
Perfect for all above ground pipework situations where you may want to dis-asssemble the pipework in the future such as winterisation. 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.
We have also included in the list an engineers secret tool called 'Magic Lube', this is a highly viscous long term silicone lubricant which is perfect for sealing the O-rings on unions, simply smear onto your o rings for a perfect seal. Can also be used on pump basket O-rings or filter lid O-rings.
Please see our downloads section for exploded views of all the various fittings showing the different configurations for sockets, threads, male & female fittings.
