We Put the ‘Fast’ in ‘Fast Connect Fitting’

Fast food vs. sit-down restaurants, instant vs. brewed coffee, and planes vs. cars. Over time, society continues to invent quicker solutions to already effective products and concepts. But with the added convenience and time it saves, there’s a reason why the quicker option can be the more attractive one. In the water works industry, the same can be said about A.Y. McDonald’s new Fast Connect Fitting.

Available in sizes 3/4", 3/4" x 1", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", and 2", the Fast Connect Fitting creates a leak free joint while providing a quick installation. Behaving just like a standard three part coupling but with one-third the amount of rotations required, the secret to this innovative product lies within the assembly itself and its dual thread design. This means a reduction in the amount of time installers are required to be in the ditch and the amount of repositioning of the wrench while installing. The following attributes help in making the Fast Connect Fitting your new preferred choice:

  • Contains a Minimal Assembly
    • Instead of containing one brass body, two brass nuts, and two compression gasket assemblies, the Fast Connect Fitting coupling consists of just two brass components, two compression gasket assemblies, and one plastic spacer
    • Consists of a tighten-to-stop feature
  • Includes less threads per inch
    • Compared to our current parts that contain a (single thread) flare nut thread, the Fast Connect Fitting was created with a (double thread) coarser thread. This leads to the faster assembly that the product was named after.
  • Provides Multiple Application Options
    • Can be used in place of a standard three piece coupling
    • Can be used when CTS PE pipe is required
    • Can be used when coupling two pieces of copper
  • Made with No-Lead Brass Material
    • Even though the brass components
 in this design should never touch water, it is a No-Lead Brass product

When you’re out in the field, the ideal solution for the job at hand is usually the quickest and most efficient one. And when it comes to maintaining our most precious resource – water – this is seen as the only solution.
