              Needed a 3/4" pex fitting with a 1/2" pipe thread for a shower installation. Couldn't find one in town but Pex Supply had what I needed.

              The trick to these is use pipe dope AND Teflon tape on your NPD threads, and then gently screw this on and slowly and steadily tighten it down.

              If you use only pipe dope you can have leaks so use dope and tape and you'll be set. Just take your time and do it right.

              I use these with the Delta rough-in valves and haven't had a single failure (yet!).

                                The product worked well, the only issue we had was that it didn't come with a rubber washer.

                                                  I used the male thread instead of this female thread, but the application was the same. Great item.

Some people swear by the higher end teflon pipe dope and tape but I just use regular pipe dope and teflon tape and it's just FINE. The trick is using just a nice light smooth application of dope, with not too many windings of tape, and putting it on very smoothly and gently and smoothly turn it on, and then crank it down - but always in a smooth steady manner.
                                                                  After all your fittings are in place and secured, do a full pressure test - let it fill up slowly. Then place bits of paper towels and look at them regularly to make sure there isn't a slight leak anywhere. If you just are careful and take your time putting them on, you will be absolutely fine. I let my full pressure test run for 72 hours - just to be safe, and then check every single joint with a dry paper towel to make sure there isn't the tiniest leak anywhere. This has done 100% by me so far, with no failures.
                                                                  With pipe dope alone ... there can be tiny leaks, so use both dope and tape and you'll be set. There is no need whatsoever for a rubber gasket or washer. Those are for temporary applications, like washer hookups - not for permanent ones that are likely to be behind a finished wall, like with a shower rough-in valve to pex supply lines.

Where these are VERY common - is let's say that you are installing a shower. MOST Shower rough-in valves have NPT female threads. So, you would use pipe dope and teflon tape on those threads, then tighten down one of these adapters onto it. NOW - you will be able to connect PEX to that adapter.
                                                                  EVEN rough-in valves that DO have PEX fittings will often ALSO have 1-2 other ports that ARENT PEX. And this is kinda stupid since then they are selling PEX but you still then need to use a threaded adapter on 1-2 ports! Delta is this way. But ... I really like their rough-in valves since I can get them with built-in stops and they are high quality.

In other words, because this is a female fitting, it would thread on to a 3/4" iron (black or galvanized) pipe and allow connection to a 1/2" PEX pipe.
