Customer Questions & Answers

can you replace a saddle valve in same spot with new one??

Asked by: dummy
Absolutely. First turn off the water supply to the waterline, remove old saddle valve and position new one with same orientation and position so that you reuse the same hole on the water line.

what should I expect the flow rate to be using a saddle valve on a 3/4" copper pipe

The one I installed only flows at approximately one quart every 3 minutes (1 gallon per 12 minutes). This seems a little slow. I am using it for the water supply to an ice maker in my refrigerator.
Asked by: JR
I get three times at flow rate. I get approximately 3 gal. In 28 min. Make sure the valve stem has completely pierced the pipe. And is backed all the way out.

3/8 in. Brass Compression Self-Tapping Saddle Valve is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saddle valve used for Whole-House Humidifier/Ice Maker waterline install I purchased this saddle valve for the purpose of installing a copper waterline to feed my existing, but non-functional ice maker and a new Honeywell whole-house humidifier. The install went smoothly and the saddle valve has worked perfectly with no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick tap Handy quick tap. Used to install my drinking water filtration system. The hardware that came with the product was the wrong size for my situation so I found this handy little tap valve to be exactly what I needed. Five minute installation and I had water flowing to my filter system. Brass construction no problem taping my supply line. Placed on 3/4 inch copper supply. Used the 3/8 compression fitting to install supply line to my filter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wasn't quite as big as I needed I knew the 1/4 saddle clamp was to small to go over 1 1/4 in PVC pipe and was hoping the 3/8 was bigger. But it uses the same saddle clamp just a little bigger valve. The two clamps are the same size so I haven't got my water line up and running yet. Was hoping for about 1/4 in bigger. Now back to square one. Probably work on an 1 inch pipe but not wide enough for 1 1/4 pipe. Still a great product, just not for this job.
