About This Product

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.

      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.

        These push-to-connect couplers fail. They make immediate repairs but they do fail as these pull apart, even correctly installed. Both on copper to copper connections and copper to pex-a connections I have experienced these couplers pulling apart in the 3/4 and 1/2 inch applications. Freezing expansion conditions seem to be the force that dooms them. As this can happen with welded copper too or pex-a pipe connection just know after freezing winter conditions these need to be closely inspected. I have had little success removing these couplers after one side has pulled out. This is a feature they promote, being able to remove them. Not always successful particularly when working in tight spaces where access and leverage is difficult. Half the time I have had to cut off the coupling on the side that is still intact. They do make connections that work for some amount of time. Know what your getting into and inspect these coupling connections annually.

        Replaced freeze-damaged connectors with new ones. Easy fix.

        Let me start by saying, I was lucky to find this fitting after the big freeze in Oregon in 2024. I’ve been using the Tectite products for quite some time always works great and at a good price! Use this product and you will thank me later.
