Among the category of flange fittings (or flange adapters) are flange plug caps, which are used to cap off or block the flow in the pipe. Flange plugs are basically a flange without a center hole that closes the end of a pipe when bolted to a standard mating flange. Depending on the system requirements, these flange plug caps are typically gas or liquid-tight. For gray water subsurface irrigation, they are sometimes used to force waste through perforated holes in the pipe, driven by system pressure.
