Hansen Threaded Fittings are easy to install provided that a few guidelines are followed:

  • Pipework must be adequately supported
  • Follow our three-step guide
  • Use a thread-sealant on all threaded connections such as Loctite 5331
  • Check the chemical compatibility and resistance list (below)
  • Check the minimum recommended hole sizes table (below)

Step by Step Guide

Threaded Fitting Step 1

Step 1: Use a thread paste sealant or teflon plumber’s tape. Sealant should be non-hardening, plastic compatible and non-slip to prevent over-torquing.

Threaded Fitting Step 2

Step 2: Screw the pipe into the fitting by hand, finger tight

Step 3: Tighten until firm with a spanner or pipe grip. One or two turns are all that are necessary.

Don’t use them for pool water as the chlorine in swimming pool water (a halogen) will attack the material. Please read through the chemical compatibility list below
