Sch 40 PVC Caps


A cap is a fitting that covers the end of a pipe. This fitting can be useful if you need to leave an end of a pipe open for later expansion or to provide access to the pipe system as necessary. This fitting is also useful if you have an opening at the end of a pipe that doesn’t need to be connected to anything else, but you need to close it off.

A cap may have a female threaded end or a socket end. Both give a leak-proof seal, and their schedule 40 PVC composition make them long lasting and cost efficient. If a cap with a socket end is used, several inches of pipe must be left when attaching the cap since the cap would need to be cut off and some pipe would be cut as well. You want to ensure you have enough pipe remaining to attach a new fitting after cutting off the cap.

We offer caps with an FIPT and a socket end, as well as class 125 caps. The maximum pressure varies depending on the size of each fitting, and the maximum temperature is 140⁰ F. Excluding class 125, our schedule 40 caps meet standards ASTM D-1784, ASTM D-2466/2467, NSF/ANSI 14 & 61.
