PVC Pipe Fittings

Whether you’re a lawn irrigation specialist or more of a DIY sprinkler type, you know what you need to keep your residential or commercial sprinkler system running properly. The absolute lifeblood is your water delivery - the pipes that send water from your valve through to each and every one of your sprinkler heads. Not only that, but you need the right fittings for these as well. The industry standard for all types of irrigation, both fitting and pipe, has been polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, for a very long time. PVC pipes are rugged, durable, and safe, perfect for burying in the ground. 

There are two types of PVC pipe that are used in irrigation. First, there’s  a flexible type, typically made from a dark-colored plastic that is thin-walled and is easy to shape into gentle curves. This is especially useful when working with large, multiple-zone irrigation systems across wide swathes of landscape. Flexible PVC pipe is also easy to cut into in order to install sprinkler heads, requiring little more than a pair of pipecutters, a metal ring, and a metal crimping tool. Because it’s so thin-walled, though, it’s best to use them for irrigation only during the summer and then winterize them over the winter months. This prevents damage from frozen water expansion.    

While flexible pipe is used primarily to run water from your manifold to your sprinkler heads, rigid PVC is for high-volume or high-pressure applications. This hard, thick-walled plastic also comes in dozens of different diameters, is sturdy enough to drill holes in it with a specialized drill bit, and joining these pipes together requires a special PVC cement that creates a tight seal in minutes. Its versatility makes it perfect for indoor and outdoor plumbing in both the summer and winter as well as for irrigation. In fact, there are probably connectors of this type in your home right now leading to an outdoor hose or hose connector, your sewer or septic tank, and, of course, your sprinkler manifold from your main water source. This type of plastic is also much more durable than the flexible variety, though both can be susceptible to damage from freezing.
