Hot Tapping

Connect to an Existing Line Without Shutting it Down

Hot tapping capabilities from Municipal Pipe Services allow you to connect and add new services onto an existing line without shutting down the whole system. While the rest of your system continues to function, Municipal Pipe Services will install a live tap that will adjust and expand your existing system under pressure, enabling you to install new fire hydrants, bypass areas of construction, add services and more.

This procedure is effective in any line of work, including municipalities, contractors, power plants, or even personal projects.

Compatible on Different Pipe Types

Along with the ability to be used on a wide size range of pipe, anywhere from ½" to 60", Municipal Pipe Services has experience working with different pipe materials including:

  • Brass
  • Carbon Steel
  • Cast Iron
  • Ductile Iron
  • Galvanized Steel
