2. 2. Purpose of Pipe FittingsPurpose of Pipe Fittings  Plumbing fittings have differentPlumbing fittings have different shapes which allow rigid straightshapes which allow rigid straight pipe to change both direction andpipe to change both direction and diameter.diameter.
3. 3. ElbowsElbows  Used to change the angle orUsed to change the angle or direction of the pipe run.direction of the pipe run.  The most common elbows come inThe most common elbows come in 90 degree and 45 degree turns.90 degree and 45 degree turns. – The sweep of the fitting describes howThe sweep of the fitting describes how fast a transition or change in directionfast a transition or change in direction is made.is made.
4. 4. Street ElbowsStreet Elbows  One end of the fitting has maleOne end of the fitting has male threads and the other end hasthreads and the other end has female threads.female threads. – Street elbows are common inStreet elbows are common in galvanized steel and copper pipe.galvanized steel and copper pipe. – They are convenient because they doThey are convenient because they do away with the need for a nipple andaway with the need for a nipple and work well in tight quarters.work well in tight quarters.
