Waterline Insert - Galvanized
Galvanized Waterline Insert Fittings
Galvanized fittings are suitable for potable water and pressure use. However, galvanized steel will corrode in some environments.
Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information and tips.
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.
