90 Degree Street Elbow Fitting for Schedule 40 PVC Pipe
(SPIGOT x FIPT). A “Spig x Fipt Street Elbow” is another configuration of street elbow. A street elbow has a female fitting on one end and a male fitting on the other end. One end of the fitting is meant to fit into another fitting. Street or “spig” fittings can typically be used in tighter quarters than regular elbows since no pipe nipple is required - it can be connected directly to another fitting without having to use an additional short connecting piece. The “street” or “spig” end of the fitting can be either a slip (spigot) or a FIPT end, but that end is meant to be used to connect into another fittings socket. Another type of 90° street elbow is known as the “90° street spig fipt elbow”. This street ell has as the “spig” side a spigot fitting which will glue into another fitting, and as the incoming side has a feamle pipe thread that will accept a male threaded pipe end. So, for example a 3/4” spig fipt 90° street elbow will allow a 3/4” male pipe thread to be inserted into one end and will cement (glue) into a 3/4” fitting with the spigot socket on the other end.
