The nut is used to tighten the union and create a watertight seal between the two pipes. The female end has threads on the inside, while the male end has threads on the outside. This allows the two pipes to be joined together by screwing the male end into the female end. The union is a commonly used fitting in plumbing systems and allows for easy disassembly and reassembly of pipes.
