View Full Version : Split FA

Weird split in a 3/4 FA. Split on the slip side, not the threaded side. The nipple into the threaded side was not much more than hand tight.

Spears fitting I installed about 3 weeks ago.

Just wondering if it was a bad batch...or maybe the pipe was out of spec...

We had two 1" PVC threaded unions split recently. One was the original, and the other split three days after installing. Threaded onto an MA. Ripped it out yesterday and just glued together.

Yours is one I haven't seen before, splitting on the slip side.
