Trade Terms for Plastic Plumbing Piping
Terms in this set (29)
Plastic pipe and fittings used extensively in drain, waste, and vent systems. (DWV)
Bell-and -spigot pipe
Pipe that has a bell, or enlargement, also called a hub, at one end of the pipe and a spigot, or smooth end, at the other end. The bell and spigot of two different pipes slide together to form a joint. Also called hub-and-spigot pipe.
Cellular core wall
Plastic pipe wall that is low density, lightweight plastic containing entrained (trapped) air.
To bevel the edge of construction material to a 45-degree angle.
Does not react with other chemicals.
A piece of hardware that uses compression force to connect sections of polyethylene piping.
CPVC ( chlorinated polyvinyl chloride)
Plastic pipe and fittings used extensively in hot and cold water distribution systems.
Rubberized. Made of an elastic substance such as a polyvinyl elastomer.
A fitting with a butt that has the same outside diameter and inside diameter as the pipe.It is usually joined to a pipe by heat.
Inside diameter (ID)
The distance between the inner walls of a pipe; the standard measure of piping used in heating and plumbing.
A fit that tightens as the pipe is pushed into the socket.
Outside diameter (OD)
The distance between the outer walls of a pipe.
Plastic piping that was formerly used for plumbing pipe;it is no longer used but is still found in some residences.
Flexible plastic pipe, tubing, and fittings, usually used for water distribution, that do not deteriorate when exposed to sunlight.
PEX (cross-linked polyethylene)
Tubing and fittings made with heat and high pressure that resist high temperatures, pressure, and chemicals.
Pipe riser clamp
A vertical extension of pipe hanger that provides support for pipe and tubing.
The maximum pressure at which a component or system may be operated continuously.
A liquid applied to plastic pipe prior to solvent welding in order to pre-soften the pipe and ensure a strong solvent weld.
Psi (pounds per square inch)
A measurement of pressure.
PVC (polvinyl chloride)
Plastic pipe and fittings used for cold water distribution and for industrial water and chemicals, as well as for drain, waste, and vent systems. (DWV)
Ring-tight gasket fitting
Fitting with a rubber O-ring or gasket in the socket.
A measurement that describes pipe wall thickness.
Size dimension ratio (SDR)
A measurement of pipe size that relates pipe wall thickness to pipe diameter.
Plastic pipe wall that does not contain trapped air.
A joint created by joining two pipes using solvent cement that softens the material's surface.
Pipe that can be repeatedly softened by heating and hardened by cooling. When softened, thermoplastic pipe can be molded into desired shapes.
Pipe that changes chemically when heated, so that once hardened by heat or chemicals, it is hardened permanently.
A special fitting used to connect plastic pipe to pipe of a dissimilar material, as specified by applicable code.
An extreme change in water pressure within a pipe that can cause a loud, banging sound and even damage the system.
