Waterline Insert - Nylon
Nylon Waterline Insert Fittings
Nylon fittings have a somewhat translucent white color. They are safe for potable, cold water supplies and pressures. Nylon fittings are lead-free.
Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information and tips. You may find other sizes available in the PVC, Brass or Nylon fittings - see links on the left.
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.
