PVC 45 degree tees are designed to link three pieces of UPVC pipe together at right angles to each other.
45 degree PVC tees are usually used with the branch of the tee joining in the same direction as the flow which makes for smooth mixing or take off. They are often used in place of 90 degree tees in low head plastic pipe systems to limit friction loss and make the most of the pressure available. The plain 45 degree tee has solvent cement sockets at either end. The PVC 45 degree tees have a pressure rating of greater than 10bar and are fully WRAS approved for use with drinking water.
