  • All pipe work must be adequately supported.
  • Use a thread sealant on all threaded connections. We recommend Loctite 5331.
  • If you are using chemicals or have any special requirements that you wish to use your Ball Valves for, please don't hesitate to contact us.


 


(a) Use a teflon tape sealant or (b) a thread paste sealant. The right sealant for threaded joints is non-hardening, compatible with plastic and doesn’t add slipperiness to encourage over-torquing.



Screw pipe or fitting into Ball Valve, hand tight.



Tighten pipe or fitting another one to two turns until seal achieved. Do not over tighten.
