A. No, the line on your fitting is not a crack. If you want, you can test it by prying open the crack that you see. If it does not budge or open up, that is most likely the knit-line of the product. It is an intrinsic part of the moulding process and will not impact the effectiveness of your material.   

Feedbacks from our customers!

  • Lily Armstrong – I purchased a fitting from Taher Brothers and I really don’t have an idea what I should get since there are so many kinds of fitting in their display. The staff around the area are quick to assist me with what I need. They even told me the difference between the fittings and which one I should get for my pipes.

Alice Hugo – The first thing I noticed when I purchased my pipes is that there are so many brands to choose from. I’ve heard some of them before so I have no problem trusting that the products are good. I’m glad I can have an option.
