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 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 than a project delay.
Too much slack By LDC3000 on 4/1/2017LDC3000 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was using this to connect to my Sicce return pump. The pump camp with two threaded barb fittings. The one that came with the pump fit snug into the tubing. This one here had too much space. I tried to clamp it down, but still to much space.
Strong Grip By Russ K on 7/2/2015Russ K would recommend this product to a friendI used the braided nylon tubing to connect to this barb. I heated some DI water in a glass container and used that to soften the tubing, and put some silicone lube on the barb. The tube slipped on the barb very easily. Once cool, I could rotate the tube on the barb with some force, but it was very difficult to remove (as I would want). When I had to refit one connection, I actually wound up cutting the old tube off by slitting it rather than trying to pull it off.

The barb should have a smooth end to accept the 1.5" pipe.
Please let me know what item to order.
We do not have the exact fitting available. You can use the 1.5" spigot x barb and a 1.5" slip x slip coupler together to create the effect. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I'm saying white and gray because I'm not sure if it's still schedule 40 or 80.
The sch80 and sch40 are interchangeable, though you'll find that the sch80 components like the cepex ball valve are of a lot higher quality then the typical white sch40 bulkhead from the hardware store.
