Are these listed as the internal or outside dimentions?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mike,
PVC fittings are sized in a "nominal" sizing. Neither dimension will read exactly the same but the nominal size means that a 1" check valve is going to fit a 1" pvc pipe, which will fit a 1" elbow, etc. The standard is the same across all the PVC as well so a 1" sch80 check valve will fit a 1" sch40 pipe and so on.

are these threaded or slip?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Ian,
All of the fittings are slip (as this is "normal") unless specifically labeled as thread. In the case of these valves they are all slip.

Is this check valve threaded at bothe ends?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mike,
This fitting is a slip fitting, it has no threads.

Can this be used with vinyl tubing and a clamp? Or just PVC?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi James,
This fitting only has slip fittings (for PVC pipe) but you could glue on a set of barb fittings if you wanted to use it with vinyl tubing and a clamp.
The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating then a project delay.
Deal of the Day!
