Zinc Plated Fittings
A fitting is used in pipe systems to connect straight pipe or tubing sections, adapt to different sizes or shapes and for other purposes, such as regulating or measuring fluid flow. Zinc plating is commonly used in industry and manufacturing in the never-ending battle against corrosion. Combine the two and you get zinc-plated fittings: multipurpose in functionality, with an extra layer of protection against corrosion. Plumbers, pipefitters, construction workers and contractors often choose zinc-plated fittings, though more than a few dedicated DIYers also think zinc for their projects. Make sure you have the right tools to install your fitting: pipe wrenches and plumbing tools like cutters and benders are readily available.
