Wet Tapping

Wet Tapping

Wet tapping is a means to create a branch connection on an existing pipeline without service interruption. Harry Caswell Plumbing, Mechanical and Utility Contractor experts utilize a tapping sleeve and valve to cut a hole in a channel under pressure. This procedure allows us to create new service lines, fire suppression lines, water and sewer force mains, and many other infrastructure expansion projects.

Wet tapping is performed on many types of piping under many pressure conditions without any interruption to the system.

The Wet Tapping process allows professionals to implement additional tie-ins or modifications to an existing system that is either pressurized or in service without disrupting the system or product flow. 

Harry Caswell Plumbing, Mechanical and Utility Contractor professionals will use different types of pipe tapping and drilling machines to install your new permanent branch connection. Our experts complete this process without leaking any product or causing any interruption. Ultimately, by hiring our professional team of experts to perform a wet tapping service, you save time and money. 

After we mount a tapping sleeve to the system's primary line, a permanent valve will be installed. Our expert team will then pressure test the system. The pressure test ensures the system's integrity has not been compromised. The overall benefits of our wet-tapping services are as follows:

  • Tapping from 1/2 inch to 48-inch pipe
