Q:Can i use this for water softener drain line
by|Jul 13, 2018
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  The short answer is the fitting will work great, but the various plumbing codes are kind of down on saddle tee fittings. The great fear is there may be back-flow from the sewer line into the water softener if the water pressure should fail. I used one and tapped the drain line leading to our washing machine to dispose of condensate from the furnace. These saddle fittings are also useful to tap a sewer line to drain away condensate from air conditioner evaporators, condensing furnaces/boilers and demand hot water heaters, but again the plumbing code frowns on thism.wanting air-gap fittings and traps to prevent the release of sewer gas.

    A:  It was a very loose fit for my 1-1/2" domestic sink waste line and was therefore unsuitable for that.

    A:  I used it to repair a cracked well supplied sprinkler pipe and just plugged the outlet. These sprinkler lines are relatively low pressure. It would probably be too weak for city type pressure. However, if your drain line is under no pressure it would work fine.

      A:  It's only for irrigation or drainage. If you use on higher than 20 psi i suggest you use clamps besides the glue

        A:  No, they're all 1/2" female NPT, intended for tapping underground irrigation lines to add sprinkler heads. The irrigation fittings are commonly 1/2" male NPT. I used the 1-1/2" size to tap various swimming pool lines to add 1/4" pressure gauges, with 1/2" to 1/4" brass bushings, at different points in the pumping system.

            A:  Yes, it snaps over and holds itself there while the cement hardens.. Although the fitting is white, like PVC, the part is actually made from ABS plastic; I verified this with the manufacturer.. To attach one of these fitting to PVC, use Transition Cement (melts both ABS and PVC) like Oatey Transition Cement or Weld-On #794. I would not use this fitting under pressure in a building or dwelling. The plumbing codes frown on saddle tees. 1-1/2" Schedule 40 PVC pipe is a nominal size, not an actual size. The average ID of 1-1/2" Schedule 40 PVC pipe is 1.61". FIMCO's products cater to the irrigation trade. See their website. In my experience, these saddle tee fittings are used for irrigation and swimming pool plumbing. I've used the 1-1/2" to tap an ABS drain line to dispose of furnace condensate

                  From the literature I read I thought this item would fit a 1-1/2" waste pipe - it does not - it is a very loose fit. However on further investigation I discovered it was suitable for IRRIGATION systems rather than domestic waste pipes however I was unaware that the pipes for the two systems were not of similar size - I am still not sure that they are. Regardless I have had to return this item.

                  Snapped on as designed. Must make sure PVC/ABS glue cement is thoroughly applied.

                  I waited to write this review for about 6 months because I really wanted to test these out. These are so easy and nice to use. To make sure these work and don't fail make sure you prep your pipe. Use a 2 part glue with the primer then the glue. Make sure your pipe is clean because it needs to make a good seal with your pipe. I run about 40-50 psi in my sprinkler system and they've held up being used 2 times a week for 6 months. I highly recommend using these its a lot better than splicing your line to add in a sprinkler.
