Essential to any DIY Plumbing Job

Comments These union fittings are one of the most useful parts you can add to your DIY plumbing arsenal. They allow easy and quick dissonections of plumbing pipe so you can easily remove pumps, overflow returns, or anything you can think of so they can be cleaned or replaced easily. Without them, it would be impossible to perfrom such a task. Another great ability of these unions are the abilty to change configurations. If you upgrade down the road, being able to just unscrew the union and screw on a new one with new equipment is so much easier than replacing a whole plumbing system. Never again will I not use one of these in my future setups.


Liked about it Quick and easy disconnects for fast serviceing of pumps and other equipment
As long as the size is the same, you can easily swap out parts without headaches


Didn't like While they are expensive, they eventually will save you money in the long run by not having to replace the whole plumbing system if something cracks or breaks.

priceless additions to most every plumbing job

Comments Union fittings are one of the best solutions for making plumbing maintainable and expandable. I use multiple unions throughout my system and highly recommend putting them at every bend and connection. These particular unions are easy to install. Simply glue in place and let them sit for a few hours and they're ready to go. They screw together for a water tight connection that can be dismantled in seconds when needed. They are a good quality product and should last for years without any active maintenance.


Liked about it High quality unions that are robust and should last for years, these slip-slip unions are a breeze to operate. I've got a good number of these throughout my plumbing, and I like being able to use them in spots where I'm unsure of what the final configuration will be. By using unions, I can swap out only portions of my plumbing when upgrading hardware or adding tanks to the entire system. These are great features for any plumbing job.


Didn't like The only complaint I have with this product is that, if you don't want to glue them in place, you simply won't be able to use them. You can find these unions for threaded jobs, and at times those are a better solution (particularly when attaching right at a union, which would have to be destroyed in order to be removed through the glass). Otherwise, I find these to be superb for their intended uses.

A must have

Comments For any serious reefer that is going to take proper care of their equipment unions are a requirement not a luxury. not only do they facilitate the proper cleaning of pumps, skimmers and so on, but they also allow for the reef tank to expand and develop with careful planning union's can be used to expand and add equipment with minimal effort.


Liked about it Slip to slip unions allow for more flow as the inside diameter is larger than a threaded union. can be reused many times just keep the gasket lubricated with medical grade (or food grade) silicone (this can be purchased at any dive store.)

While shopping at lowes I found these for sale for about $6.00 @ they are schedule 40 too.


Didn't like Once the pipe or flex hose is glued to the union fitting that is it rarly can they be pulled apart and reused if you do reuse them watch closly for leaks (I have reused a couple in my day but the joit was only an hour old)

Must have for plumbing!!

Comments I recently redid some of my plumbing, and I don't know what I would have done with out these unions. Not only does it make it easier to actually do the plumbing work, because you can remove it and glue it instead of having to do it in place. But once you are done you can easily remove sections for cleaning or cleaning of components. Plus it looks like a pro did it when your done,lol.


Liked about it Very easy to use and easy to work with. They give you many more options when plumbing in something than just using piping. They have many uses, not just for removal, sometime you can make pieces adjustable or able to pivot making lining up easier.


Didn't like I like everything about them.

best thing since sliced bread!

Comments gotta love the simplicity, works like a champ! you can get them for about 6 bucks at lowes tho....


Liked about it the ease of dissasembly is nice, they are leakproof as long as you dont get gunk stuck in them when tightening, and it just looks professional


Didn't like these things are great but you have to have your plumbing well planned and aligned before making them permanent.

Great to have inline

Comments If your going to run a lot of pipe then make sure to install unions!
Either run a union in between two ball valves or run a ball valve that has two unions!
Make sure the O-ring is in good condition and only hand tighten!


Liked about it Makes cleaning the inside of pipes super easy.
Also makes plumbing in cramped areas easy.


Didn't like requires that the water be off and the pipe to be empty. Installing a true union ball valve is better.

Excellent Product

Comments IF you ever need to disassemble your plumbing, these are a must! I use several of these in my system and they have worked without fail.


Liked about it Tremendous Build Quality, Assembles Easily, Holds back water :D


Didn't like The O-Ring in the middle has a tendency to fall out, make sure it is there when assembling, or it will leak!

They are ok but use true unions if possible

General I only use these were there is not room for a true union. They are fine and do make it easier to remove pumps and other plumbing but true unions are my far easier.


Liked about it Useful
Easy to install


Didn't like Not as easy to use as true unions
