Add a line to your existing pipe by installing an easy to operate Flo-Tap Saddle - it will cut your work in half as there is no need to shut off the water, and it cleans up after itself in the process. This ingenious design removes the debris created by cutting into the PVC/ABS pipe while it cuts, keeping the material out of the water supply. Looking for a great selection of fittings? Click here
No need to shut off the water to tap your PVC/ABS pipe with
For schedule 40 & 80 pipe
Shown with socket wrench & extension (not included)
|Removable cap alows for an easy access to the metal saw tooth cutter. Using a 3/8" socket wrench with a 6" extension, turn the cutter clockwise to cut an opening in the pipe. The built-in saw tooth cuts easily through a PVC pipe wall, cutting a single piece of pipe away. The cutter captures the waste as it cuts, preventing debris in the supply. Turn the wrench counter-clockwise to bring the cutter and waste back to the top. Remove the socket wrench and replace the cap to prevent leaking. Tip: You can add a ball valve to easily shut off water to the new line.

|PVC Ball Valves
S x S (solvent style)
|These ball valves will come in handy when using the Flow-Tap Saddles shown above. By adding a ball valve, you can easily shut off water to the new line. The 1" and 2" ball valves will glue right into the branch outlet. 3/4" and 1 1/2" ball valves will require a piece of pipe between the ball valve and the branch outlet.
