We are often asked if we can hot tap (wet tap) HDPE water and sewer mains. The answer is yes. HDPE pipe can be hot tapped through either an electrofusion fitting or a mechanical tapping sleeve. Pacific Flow Control is happy to perform either service for you turnkey. This photo is of an 18×12 HDPE/FL ElctroFusion hot tap we did today in Chilliwack on a sewer force main. Let me know if you’d like some information on either technology, or give me a call if you’d like to talk through your options.
