Compared to copper or black nipples, Galvanized Nipples are extremely rust-resistant due to their zinc-coated steel. Because of this, they are mainly used for outdoor and industrial applications. Although they can withstand hot water lines, they work best when used with cold water lines. There are a variety of outdoor uses except that of underground lines.
Because of the zinc coating, these types of nipples are incredibly tough and have a long life expectancy. Also, most galvanized products are very cost-effective due to the fact they are not very labor-intensive to create.
These nipples consist of two male ends, which you connect to two female Galvanized Fittings. You want to ensure you are connecting a Galvanized Nipple to Galvanized Pipe Fitting. Doing so will create a secure connection. If you connect these nipples to other materials such as Copper Fittings, you will have an unsecured connection due to the different size threading of the different materials.

In addition, you can choose from tapered pipe thread, straight pipe thread, roller cut, reamed and chamfered, square cut, and grooved.
