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.
