Compared to mechanical joint, which uses up to eight bolts on each end, the ALPHA joint uses only one top-mounted stainless steel bolt. This makes the valve with ALPHA ends easier to install, which saves time and money. The ALPHA inlet is compatible with several pipe materials, including ductile iron, cast iron, HDPE and PVC pipe. Meaning it will work with just about any pipe material on the job. Learn more by watching this video.
