Oddly enough I say about 75% of the time I tighten the sucker at first before I realize I'm going the wrong way. Is there something I can look for on the union it self to see which way it goes.
Problem is .. there is a ton of different kind of unions and brands which are all different threads and styles ect ect..
They may be different, but I have never seen a reverse threaded plumbing union that I can remember. So with that in mind, it is always counter clockwise to loosen as you look through the union from the female bell end.
