What's the suggested torque ( ft-lbs ) for tightening the nuts? Or torque should be no more than XYZ ft-lbs?
Asked by: Mike
I have never used a torque wrench in plumbing......or seen anyone else do so......you want to use teflon tape and pipe dope on the male threads and tighten the nuts securely. Check for leaks/seeping when tank is filled and tighten as needed.

What adapter do I need in order to connect the compression end to an FIP valve?

Asked by: Erockian
By "compression end" I take it you are referring to the Shark Bite end? This pushes onto a standard 3/4' copper pipe. "FIP" (female iron pipe) you would simply solder a male thread adaptor onto the copper pipe. There are Shark Bite fittings also for this.

I'm on a well. I would be using connector for my softener. The black crud problem associated Chlorinated water. Would the Softener Pellets become a Crud problem for my installation?
Asked by: FrankL
This connector will work anywhere normal pipeworks. Faster to install, will never break loose, and has flexx in it so you don't get sound transfer

Is the FIP end a tapered or parallel thread?

It has a rubber gasket in it, so that seems to imply a parallel thread... but I believe most water heater connector nipples are a tapered thread. Please clarify? Thanks!
Asked by: RayNJ
Parallel thread, there is a O ring that actually seals the fitting.

We are having a problem with the black goo in our hot water lines. We replaced our heater last year and put in these flexible lines. Now when we run water in the bathtub we get this goo in the tub when we try clean the tub it sticks to tub and looks like black grease! Do you make these lines with a plastic inner pipe? My husband loves the ease of replacement but does not like taking a bath in black goo! if so where might we be able to find them in eastern NC
Asked by: Georgia1
If you have determined that the rubber line is causing this problem I would have your water tested for PH. I have installed many of these with no problems of residue or deterioration.
