How It Works

Line taps, also known as hot or wet taps, provide access to a pressurized pipe without disrupting pressure or service upstream of the tap. A pressure tap is first made by installing a sleeve that is capable of retaining the internal pressure of the water main around the pipe, such as Hydra-Stop’s Insta-Valve insertion valve or HSF 250 line stop fitting. A temporary gate valve is attached to the sleeve, through which the tap is performed.

The Hydra-Stop Difference

Hydra-Stop’s revolutionary, lightweight hot/wet tap machine, the Hydra-Tapper, makes line taps on water, wastewater, and industrial water lines quick and easy. The Hydra-Tapper has fewer moving parts thanks to its superior engineering and rugged construction, allowing operation without costly and annoying malfunctions. Additionally, its lightweight design eliminates the need for the expensive blocking and bracing often required to support traditional heavy tapping equipment. The Hydra-Tapper makes it easy to turn an inexperienced worker into a professional line tapper.
