Water Softener CPVC Installation
First off a little background. I have worked with CPVC before so I know the basics (priming, cementing, etc.).
I have been living with hard water for almost a year and I thought it was time to try a water softener. So I bought a Whirlpool Water Softener (WHES30). Probably not the best, but oh well.
I currently have a 3-Valve Bypass Installed with 1" CPVC (came with the house). The problem I am having is that 1" CPVC appears to be a uncommon size. 1/2 and 3/4 appear to be the most popular (looking at Big-Box stores like Lowes and Home Depot).
So the water softener came with these 1" NPT Male Adapters to attach to the system. The manual is geared towards 1" copper piping so I need a little help. I figured I just needed to buy a 1" Female CPVC Adapter. I have not been able to find anything at the local stores (again, Big-Box stores). I have not yet pulled out the yellow pages and started calling smaller stores. Anyways, I have looked online and found the following:
My worry is that the female adapter is CPVC. Do I need to worry about the pressure cracking this? Would this piece work? Or maybe there is a better way?
If someone really wants to go in detail here is the installation manual:
