The PVC pipe saddle tee is engineered as a simple way to add a 1/2-in. male pipe thread (MPT) outlet to 3/4-in. or 1-in. PVC pipe. It eliminates the challenge of having to cut the pipe and add a traditional PVC tee. The saddle tee body is constructed from PVC, an O-ring, and stainless steel screws. The top section of the saddle tee has a 1/2-in. MPT outlet.
Installation is as simple as placing the top and bottom parts of the saddle tee parts on the pipe, tightening the screws, drilling a hole in the pipe (being careful not to drill into the bottom wall, and cleaning out any debris. The O-ring will form a watertight seal against the PVC pipe. You can then thread a 1/2-in. sprinkler riser or swing pipe fitting into the top of the saddle tee. For non-constant pressure outdoor irrigation use with cold water only.
