IDENTIFYING FITTINGS AND USING JOINT CONNECTIONS FOR GALVANIZED STEEL PIPE
This learning event illustrates threaded drainage fittings for galvanized steel pipe. This learning event also explains how to make a threaded joint connection on galvanized steel pipe.
Drainage fittings for galvanized steel pipe used in a waste system are cast with a recessed shoulder. This design allows a smooth flow of waste material. The illustration below shows threaded drainage fittings.
