Q. "I want 100 of one of the above barb fittings. How soon after I place my order can you ship 100% complete?"
A. Our inventory is great, and 98% of the time we will have the quantity you ordered in stock. If we don't have all in stock, it generally takes about 7-10 days to receive a backordered product to complete your order.
Q. "Are these fittings for potable water?"
A. The fittings marked as "lead-free" are for potable water. Fittings not designated as "lead-free" are considered low in lead content but not to the strictest codes/laws, therefore, we cannot recommend them for use with potable water.
Q. "I'm hearing a lot about lead-free these days. What does that have to do with plumbing products and how does the new lead-free legislation affect me?"
A. Basically, the laws implemented Jan. 1st, 2014 require plumbing products that come in contact with drinking water to be essentially lead free (less than 0.25% weighted average). For further information about how the law determines what is lead free, rules regarding which plumbing products must be lead free, and who these laws will affect, please visit our LEAD FREE Plumbing Information page.
Q. "How are barb fittings held in place?"
A. Typically, barb fittings are held in place with a hose clamp.
Q. "Do you need any type of adhesive for barb fittings?"
A. No, because barb fittings are designed to be pushed into the tubing or hose, and then a hose clamp is installed to complete the connection. There may be times when a lubricant, such as water, might be needed to help insert the fitting. This of course will depend on what is being run through the hose and fittings, as you wouldn't want to use a lubricant that is not compatible with what is flowing through it.
