Bicone plumbing fittings are part of mechanical joining systems that dispense with a flared collar or solder (solder). The system used is very simple and easy to assemble. Tightness is guaranteed if the mounting sequences are precisely followed. The price of this type of connection reserves it dependent on an extension of installation.

The contribution of teflon tape threading is an additional guarantee of tightness of this kind of fitting.
