The Tectite Lead Free Push-to-Connect Ball Valve quickly and easily fits onto 1/2" or 3/4" Copper pipe, PEX, and CPVC hot and cold water pipes of the same size. Female Pipe Thread on one side of the valve allows connection to male pipe thread parts and fittings.
With no soldering, clamps, unions or glue required, it’s as simple as inserting the pipe into the valve where it is sealed by the prelubricated EPDM O-ring. Once inserted, the 316 stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe. Tectite ball valves are rated for 250F and 200 PSI.
Tectite fittings are removable with a low cost demounting tool, and are reuseable.
Tectite fittings are made in USA by Elkhart Products Corporation.
