DISCONNECT DEVICES

It is important to provide a disconnect device at all system components that may require service or winterization, including pumps, filters, sterilizers, and valves. We offer three types of disconnect devices: unions, flexible connectors, and quick-release couplings.

GRAY UNIONS: Unions provide a means to easily disconnect rigid or flexible pipe from pumps, valves, and filters. In combination with thread-to-barb adapters, they can also be used to join corrugated hose to flexible pipe. Our unions are made of gray PVC with socket fittings on both sides, threads on both sides, or a combination of sockets and threads. We offer 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 2" unions in all configurations, as well as 3" and 4" unions with sockets or female threads only.

BLACK FLEXIBLE CONNECTORS: Flexible connectors can be used instead of unions to connect rigid or flexible pipe to pumps, filters, check valves, and other pond components likely to need routine service. They are also invaluable for connecting dissimilar materials that cannot be joined by other means: for example, to connect PVC pipe to the inlet of a polyethylene filter. Our flexible connectors are made of thick black flexible PVC with stainless-steel hose clamps. We stock end caps, couplings, elbows, and tees in 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 2", 3", and 4" sizes as well as a range of reducing couplings for connecting unequal pipe sizes. When flexible connectors are used in pressurized lines, the system head should not exceed ten feet.

BLACK QUICK-RELEASE COUPLINGS: Quick-release couplings are ideal for making watertight connections between corrugated hose, pumps, filters, or other pond components likely to need routine service. They open and close in seconds without tools, are effortless to align, and can withstand high water pressure. Our quick-release couplings are made of black polypropylene with stainless-steel hardware and sizes up to 2" have locking safety buttons to assure closure and prevent accidental opening. We stock 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 2" sizes with female threads, male threads, or a combination of male and female threads.
