Tapping Corrugated Metal Pipe
There are 3 methods for tapping CMP. Some CMP manufactures offer welded Aluminum Saddles. These are expensive and difficult to install especially in the larger diameters. Saddles require a deeper trench and the ability to get over, under, and around the pipe. The second method is to cut a hole and weld an outlet onto the side of the pipe. This requires a welding rig and is time consuming and expensive. The third is to use an Inserta Tee. Once the pipe is cored the proper hole for an Inserta Tee, the actual install can be completed in minutes. We offer Inserta Tees for CMP 4” through 18” outlet connections.
