Whether you're searching for an appliance, heating, cooling or  plumbing for a brass compression fitting - then look no further than Lowe's. The reasonable fittings from American Valve, Watts and Vanguard, to name a couple, offers compression fittings at reasonable prices, sizes and brands. According to Wikipedia "Compression fittings are also used extensively for hot and cold water faucets (taps) and toilet stop valves; compression fittings are well suited to this application, as these valves are usually located in confined spaces where copper pipe would be difficult to solder without creating a fire hazard".

So, mostly used because they do not need soldering and are not needed to flex or bend, the compression fittings are bulky and less attractive. Although the brass boiler drain valve, in various sizes, in brass and pvc offers solutions to many problems. Whether you're repairing, replacing or connecting in an emergency a compression fitting is a good choice for any project.

Home Depot has quite a selection of union pipe fittings. My husband recently sent me to our local store to purchase a brass fitting for a project he was working on, and should I be surprised, but I was totally out of my element! It's been awhile, but now the Anderson Barrows goes by the name Watts and that's what we were accustomed to purchasing. However, I soon found exactly what we were searching for. The pipe fittings are used in plumbing systems and we needed one quick! Since the tubular or "hollow cylinder" is interchangeable with a level of "rigidity and permanence" used with elbows and tees to form custom settings, I was determined to come home with the exact fitting, not to mention size!

Yes, I purchased the perfect union pipe fitting to conform to our home task at a reasonable cost. I also saw several uses for the union pipe fittins for building materials and outdoor development, but mostly plumbing issues. Other brands included BrassCraft, Mueller Streamline, Mueller Global and the Watts brand which we were familiar with. Found in a variety of sizes, some were multi-purpose with standard compression fittings, inserts and connections. The range of union pipe fittings are all found in brass and polyethylene in various sizes. The lesson is alaways send a wife into the unkown, to purchase the correct union pipe fitting!

Recently, we were in Lowe's and needed a brass compresssion nut. Orginally, I thought the manufacturer Anderson Barrows had a line of these brass compression nuts, but I guess I was wrong. The only manufacturer's were Plumb Pak and Watts. Anyway, I found exactly what we were looking for, in a compression kit and compression nut, that was solid durable brass. Perfect for our project in a size that was easy to install and use with quality threads. What could be better or easier? The price - so easy on the budget and "no advance preparation or flaring of tubing needed".

This concise compression nut, short and narrow was the ideal choice for our home project. The pipe, fittings, valves and water supply connectors are all the perfect sturdy connectors that will last for years.
