Service Connection for Reinforced Concrete Pressure Pipe

Service Connection for Reinforced Concrete Pressure Pipe

The illustration herewith, showing the details of a simple method of making service connections to reinforce concrete distribution mains is taken from a bulletin entitled : “Concrete in Architecture and Engineering,” published by the Portland Cement Association. In making the connection regular stock pipe fittings are used. No tapping machine is required and for that reason excavation need be carried only to the top of the main. In the accompanying sketch A is a steel stem; B, brass packing nut; C, malleable iron cap; D, malleable iron tee; If, close nipple; F, malleable iron bushing; faced. I. S. Thr’d L. H., O. S. Thr’d R. H.; G, cock; If. nipple; I. malleable iron coupling; K, plug, bronze; L, malleable iron bushing; faced, I. S. Thr’d L. H„ O.S. Thr’d R. H., and M. malleable iron plug. After plug “L” is raised to and screwed into faced bushing “F,” stem “A” is unscrewed and cap “B” with close nipple “E,” packing nut “B” and perforated cap “C” are removed and a solid cap screwed on faced bushing “F.”
