Product Details

The 1/2 in. Tectite by Apollo Push-To-Connect coupling is the fastest, cleanest and simplest way to join any combination of 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:Will this be okay to use with copper refrigerant line?
        by|Jul 30, 2019
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  No, these fittings should be used with rigid copper tubing rather than the flexible versions. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (888) 229-2874.

        by|Jul 31, 2019

          A:  No. Do not use use for an ice maker for instance. Even though both are 1/4 in, the openings on this are larger. Would need compression fittings.

            Completely failed in underground use!
            I used these to fix a leak on my main service line, they worked great until they cracked and blew up less than 2 years later. One fitting cracked and blew thru brass other cracked at same place!! Everything I’ve read says lifetime warranty/ approved for underground use! Obviously a costly defect now that I had to dig up water line and fix, not to mention the water cost!

              I had no idea these coupler products are out there. The super guy at Home D was so good at walking me thru each step. With new products and confidence ,I came home and put it together. Amazing how easy to connect and no leaks. So I got to call the plumber and cancel his visit. I got it all done. Thanks so much for good product and people to explain it.
