Plumbing hardware comprises of fittings such as pipes, metal fittings, strainers, hoses, gaskets and valves. Pipes in a plumbing system are used to carry water and liquid wastes in a plumbing system. They are generally made of carbon steel, stainless steel, malleable iron, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC). The CPCV pipes & fittings that are attached to these pipes are also generally made of CPVC. Strainers are used to keep any solid particles and debris from entering the water system; they are sieves generally made up of metal or rust resistant materials because they are continuously in contact with water. Hoses are nothing but flexible pipes and are usually categorized as hydraulic hoses, industrial hoses, rubber hoses, spiral wire hoses and vacuum hoses. Gaskets are used in sealing applications – a spiral wound gasket, for instance, has a filler metal which acts as an effective sealing element. Valves are flow regulators that direct the flow of water in a plumbing system. Ball valves, a class of valves, have rotors which are spherical in shape with cylindrical burrows drilled in them to allow water to pass through. Butterfly valves are another sub-type of valves which are preferred over ball valves because of their cheaper costs.
