MS-CAP: Cap with F Buttress Threads
This cap is used to cap the end of the valve manifold. The valve manifolds are designed to connect double; triple; or quadruple manifolds together to make larger manifolds if needed. The cap is used to cap the end of the manifold to seal it off when no additional manifolds need to be added.
Overall Description of the 1" Half Union Manifold Syst
Eliminate leaks and the problems with servicing valves by building manifolds from this high-quality manifold system.
- They do become brittle when exposed to direct sunlight for periods of time so if you stub plumb them in before connecting valves and finishing your system, make sure you keep them out of sunlight in someway in the meantime.
- The fittings are also sensitive to the sun and the hot/cold cycle of day night, and I found that they should remain inside until you are ready to install the valves and cover them up. Otherwise they do not thread easily or at all.
- The fittings have o-rings (including the caps) so make sure they do not fall out when handling and you may want to take them out until you are ready to finish the job to avoid losing them. I couldn't find a place to get just the orings so I had to order a few extra fittings to cover lost ones or worn ones.
