Brass Tap Kit
The brass tap kit is our collection of products to provide an easy and effective solution to set up an irrigation system and still have access to your house tap. Using a combination of thread tape and sealant you can tightly secure your brass tap kit to a watertight position.
The Brass Ball valve allows you to isolate the irrigation system while still being able to run the garden tap.
The Backflow Prevention Kit is available and depending on your location the council may require you to use one. Backflow preventers stop the risk of your irrigation water contaminating the main water supply line if backflow occurs
Installing the tap kit involves two to three wraps of thread tape and cover with Weld-On Sealant. This allows for a watertight connection. For connecting to a home tap, you may need to be cautious of how many rotations needed to tighten the setup and whether one more rotation will align straight. We like to connect the Tee, Ball valve and Tap before connecting to the house, you can use the setup for leverage in small spaces and help you align straight. Thread tape and sealant is not required after the ball valve as this is where the water pressure is held.
The Wingback/Wall Pates and Bracket elbows are the alternative options in connection the Brass Tap Kits. The Plasson Wingback and Jimten Wall Plates allow you to connect directly into medium density pipe e.g. mains water pipe. The MD connection works the same as the retrospective brands and may need tightening with a tool.
The Low-Density Bracket Elbow from Hansen allows you to use one fitting to connect to Low-Density pipe
