Self-piercing Saddle Valve Information

The Self-Piercing Saddle Valve from Pet Store is designed to address multiple purposes to ensure that your tank maintains the water flow, which it requires. This valve allows you to connect essential gadgets to your tank and ensures that they perfectly fit the valve. With the use of the C-frame, you can fit the valve to insert your gadgets with lesser time and effort than using ordinary valves.

The saddle valve perfectly fits tubes measuring 3/8 of an inch up to 5/8 of an inch in diameter. It also uses a quarter-inch compression bolt. It is easy to install. Before use, turn the handle counterclockwise so that the piercing pin backs up. With the water supply off, put the valve over the pipe. Fit the loose clamp to the shape of your pipe. Turn the screw or bolt to tighten it just enough to achieve a firm snug fit of the valve to the pipe. Slide the compression nut on the RO tube and then slip on the compression sleeve.

At this point, the sleeve is narrower on one end and make sure that this end is away from valve. Put in the brass insert into the end of the tube and tighten the nut. Slowly turn the valve handle clockwise all the way to pierce the pipe. This serves as the "off" spot of your gadget. To open, turn the valve handle counterclockwise. Finally, turn on the water supply to allow the water to flow to your gadget. Check if any part of the tube has leaks.

The Self-Piercing Saddle Valve is economical, and it is made of high-quality materials that make it durable.

Pierces copper pipe to feed RO or RO/DI units. (CP Part No. PSV14, KMPart No. SV, SP Part No. XV-PRC-4T)

**Variations of this product can be found in many online stores. The version we carry is of the highest quality. Although this item is eligible for price matching under our Low Price Guarantee, please be certain the product you want to price match is the same make and model.

Comments: I've used these in the past and they've performed great ! But unfortunately the last one was terrible ! (I'm siding on a factory defect). I will continue to use them but this last one was a disaster ! I'm just lucky I had other options to solve the problem !

Comments: I was not sure how to hook up. It was easy, secure mounting bracket to cold water pipe. Shut water source. Place copper stem inside 1/4 tubing, placing copper bolt inside tube and place white plastic O ring a tip of tubing. Tighten bolt on to Base of Valve (use 1/2" open wrench). Open water source, open Saddle Value, Your done, No Leaks.

Comments: I used this self-piercing saddle valve as instructed but it failed to pierce the copper pipe in my home. The piercing pin bent and failed. I ended up purchasing a different unit with a solid metal pin from Home Depot and it pierced my copper pipe like butter.
