Almost Perfect

Comments about 1/2" x Close Galv Nipple:

Great Price with clean and consistent threading. Only drawback is the inside opening edges have burs. Also wished they shipped 100ct or larger bulk packaging.

Just Right

Comments about 1-1/2" x 2" Galv Nipple:

With Pex Supply nipples, you can be sure of a proper measurement. I needed exactly 2" length nipple to fit properly between a wall drain pipe and the trap under my bath sink -- 1-1/2" diameter -- and this was exactly 2." I've ordered multiple nipples from Pex over the years, and they have always been spot-on the advertised length. In plumbing, an extra 1/8" in length can render a part completely useless.

When Shorter Is Better

By DCinDC

Comments about 1-1/2" x Close Galv Nipple:

I bought a couple of these recently to replace a very short bathroom sink nipple. A plumber tried to tell me there was no such thing as a nipple this short, but I had bought one almost as short from Pex Supply before, and sure enough they had these. This One is so short there is no flat center area meant to be gripped by a pipe wrench, but it doesn't matter -- you won't need the full amount of threads on either end fora tight fit, so you just go ahead and use your wrench to tighten right in the middle of this. I do suggest you buy two or three of these if you've got a tight fit on each end, as it matters where the thread-cuts start, and you may need a certain orientation in order to snug both sides, end in the right pipe-to-drain angle.

  • 1/2" x 1-1/2 Galv Nipple

    Q:

    Is it okay to use this type of fitting in conjunction with a boiler drain valve? would Black pipe work or would corrosion be a concern? The drain valve is too short to fit the current connection point. thank you for your help in advance.

      A:

      Black pipe should not be used for a boiler drain; black pipe is designed
      for gas. Galvanized pipe should work, but a stainless steel nipple of the
      same size would be better and would not be very expensive in that size.

      A:

      That would be fine for what you are doing.
      Black pipe is fine in boiler applications, as they oxygen is boiled out . Be sure to bleed air off the top of radiators after opening system. Then again in a month or so.

      A:

      Of course. Just don't use black pipe, it will corrode.

    Q:

    Does the length measurement (1.5 inches in this case) refer to the overall length or just the body of the nipple (the unthreaded section).

    Thanks

      A:

      The 1 1/2 on the GN-0715 refers to the length of the entire nipple (threaded and un-threaded section).
