Simple, straightforward and low shipping rates for these compression fittings.
Q. "Are there any precautions to take when using these compression PVC fittings?"
A. Yes, the pipe should be secured to prevent movement that can cause the pipe to separate from the fitting. This can be accomplished by strapping it to stakes on each side of the fitting or blocking the ends of the run where it stops or changes direction.
Q. "Do you recommend using PTFE thread sealing tape on PVC threads?"
A. Lasco Manufacturing says: "It is wrong to add excess bulk to a threaded joint by wrapping male threads in Teflon® tape. It is wrong to make over-tightening easier by using Teflon® tape..." We have seen much similar PTFE thread sealing tape used satisfactorily but cannot (due to liability potential) recommend that you use PTFE thread sealing tape (pipe dope designed for PVC, such as we offer above, is acceptable).
