Brass pipe fitting with female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting and branching three sections of pipe or fittings. Reducing tees have one opening smaller than the other two to connect different sizes of pipes. Pipe dimensions for tees are represented as A x B x C. This tee has NPT threads on all three ends for creating tighter seals than straight threads, and it is made of lead free brass, which is comparable in strength to stainless steel and is more corrosion resistant. Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping. This fitting is generally used when building a mainline in order to install a 3/4′ hose bib to a 1″” line.
