About This Product

The 1/2 in. Tectite by Apollo Push-To-Connect cap is the fastest, cleanest and simplest way to cap copper, CPVC, PE-RT and PEX pipe without the use of tools, solder, open flame or glue. Simply insert the pipe to allow the high-strength stainless steel teeth to grip the pipe securely against the specially designed O-ring. Fitting removal and reuse is just as simple using a simple demount clip (sold separately). After assembly, fittings may be rotated for simpler installation in tight spaces. All Tectite by Apollo fittings are approved for use in both potable water and hydronic heating piping systems.

Q:I have cutoff my copper pipe and used this push to connect cap with the insert and reenergized pipes without a leak. I have read in a couple places after this that I was to remove the insert. Should I remove the insert if not leaking?

Answer This Question

A:  When connecting a Tectite push fitting to copper pipe, we recommend removing the white insert before connecting the push fitting. The white insert should only remain in the push fitting when using PEX pipe.

        Quick and EZ to use. No soldering or skill required to make a good water tight seal. I use these caps during remodels to cap lines prior to having them moved or abandoned allowing the water to be turned back on during construction for hand washing and use of the toilet.

        If you are working on a dishwasher or refrigerator water line, you always need to have one of these in the plumbing box just in case you need it.
