Use Brass Reducing Hex Head Bushings to securely connect one NPT size fitting to a smaller NPT size fitting.
The brass fittings that we offer are for above-the-waterline use only. Due to the difference in nobility between brass and bronze, which can result in galvanic corrosion (and a failure of the fitting), we recommend that you not use these alloys together in saltwater environments. For reasons of safety, we suggest the use of cast bronze or Marelon® tailpieces and hose instead.
Reducing Hex Head Bushings
These machined brass bushings feature male NPT threads on one end and female NPT threads on the other. A hexagonal head allows for tighting with a wrench. Threads are tapered "NPT", which stands for "National Pipe Thread."
