Brass insert fittings for PE (polyethylene) pipe in potable (drinking) water and irrigation systems.

These are often used in the well or underground.

Note: Most of our brass insert fittings are lead-free. Look for "lead-free" in the description. Only fittings that are lead-free may be used in potable (drinking) water systems.

Tip: To facilitate inserting fittings, immerse the pipe in hot water to soften it slightly.  Do not use any lubricant other than water.  To remove insert fittings, use hot water or a heat gun to heat waterline gently until it is just hot enough (about 150-185°F) to allow it to stretch a little.

tip: Slide two pipe clamps facing in opposite directions over the waterline end before inserting the fitting.  After inserting the fitting, position clamps side-by-side but 180° out of alignment.  Tensioning screws will face in the same direction but on opposite sides of the pipe.  Tighten clamps while pipe is still warm.  Do not over-torque.

Tip: In cold weather, the pipe will be easier to work with if you keep it in a heated building until you are ready to use it.
