Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "What does slip joint mean?"
A. "Slip joint" (or S.J.) is the same size as 1/2" female thread that comes with many faucets and is standard 1/2" pipe thread, but it is non-tapered. (Be aware, though, that the S.J. flexes might not work well on threaded PVC fittings, as the wall of the PVC fittings might be too thick.)
Q. "I'm not clear what the difference is between standard washing machine hose connectors and slip joint?"
A. The standard washing machine hose connectors are 3/4" female hose threads, exactly like what is used outside for garden hose threads.. Slip joint is simply 1/2" standard pipe thread - female threaded that fits onto most standard 1/2" male pipe threads. (S.J. connectors might not work well on threaded PVC fittings, which may sometimes be too thick.) The only difference is that, unlike standard fittings that screw onto 1/2" male pipe threads, S.J. isn't tapered. There's no need to use pipe compound or Teflon™ (PTFE) tape to help make the seal on the threads, because the rubber/neoprene cone will make the seal instead against the inside rim of the threads that you are attaching the connector onto.
Q. "Why would I need a quick tee adapter?"
A. If you already have a two-way valve but need to add an additional waterline, the quick tee adapter allows you to create a branch outlet without shutting off the main water supply.
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 view our page.
