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 tap machine makes line taps on water and wastewater lines quick and easy. Superior engineering, rugged construction and fewer moving parts, allow the Hydra-Tapper to operate without costly and annoying malfunctions and its lightweight design also eliminates the need for the expensive blocking and bracing often required to support traditional heavy tapping equipment. The Hydra-Tapper hot tap (also known as a wet tap) machine makes it easy to turn an inexperienced worker into a professional line tapper.
