Schedule 40 PVC Bushings (Reducer)
Schedule 40 PVC reducer bushings are used when the pipe diameter changes throughout a run. Create a tight seal between two different diameter pipes connected together. These fittings are commonly used with systems that are made with Schedule 40 PVC, but they can be used with other CPVC pipe and PVC pipe materials if needed.

Although they perform a similar function, PVC bushings are not the same thing as reducing couplings. Both can connect pipes of two different sizes, but bushings actually give you the option to screw the new pipe into the existing system. They have screw threads inside that will connect the two pipes with greater strength. Because they have smooth interior walls since they are made from PVC, these bushings allow the fluid to flow through without unnecessary friction and a loss of flow, outside of the loss created by the reducing function. Also, because they are made from PVC, they are suitable for use in outdoor and underground systems, such as in irrigation. They are also commonly found in household applications, such as sewer lines, as long as the temperature of the system does not exceed the 140 degree maximum for this material. All of these benefits are offered at a price far more affordable than with metal fittings.
Schedule 40 PVC reducer bushings come in a range of diameters and styles. You can purchase anything ranging from 1/2 inch to 12 inches. They can have slip and spigot ends, female and male threaded ends and spigot and female threaded ends. This versatility ensures you can find the right fitting for the specific need you have.
