Save Time With Push Fittings

Push Fittings

Save time in your plumbing projects with easy-to-use push fittings. Simply push the fitting into the pipe. You don't need heat, solder, clamps, crimps or glues for a leak-free seal. Stainless steel teeth inside the pipe grip the fitting, which is secured with rubber O-rings.
