The PipeFitter™ (Patent Pending) is a revolutionary PVC pipe hand tool designed specifically for joining large diameter plastic pipe and fittings.
The strong and versatile PipeFitter™ precisely aligns the pipe and the fitting and using a jacking process pulls and presses the pipe into the proper fitting insertion depth. The PipeFitter™ maintains proper alignment during assembly, and holds cemented connections to prevent the fitting from backing-off until the initial set time is achieved.
The PipeFitter™ Does the work of many men and will pay for itself the first day you own it. One man can align fittings and pipe, glue and prime both and in a matter of seconds powerfully complete a manufactures recommended union. This is a MUST HAVE TOOL for anyone who works with 3” or larger diameter PVC pipe. Typically, assembling 3" and larger diameter pipe requires at least two workers. One worker simultaneously holds both ends out of the dirt, glues, primes and aligns the ends for insertion while the other worker physically “pushes” the pipe into the fitting socket while the cemented surfaces are still wet. Unfortunately due to job site contaminates and pipe conditions (misshaped or deformed ends and close tolerances) the amount of force necessary to fully seat the connections is rarely accomplished. The end result is a weak and ineffective connection one that can leak and or separate during backfill.
The PipeFitter™ uses 1 ton of precise mechanical pulling and pressing power to replace ineffective brute force (hammer and 2”x4” and or the heel of your boot) to complete a strong and fully bonded connection. The PipeFitter™ quickly connects even large diameter pipe with “out of round” and “gap” joint conditions by applying a powerful mechanical force to accomplish a speedy connection and the clamping power to hold the pipe in place until the solvent cement fully cures.
With the PipeFitter™ you get a second set of powerful hands in the trench or on the line where you need it. For all your electrical, drain or water piping projects. You'll save time, work safer, improve quality and you'll save money.
It's a powerful, hands-free clamp and pipe press.
If you can clamp it, you can connect it. The PipeFitter's powerful clamping jaws allow you to securely clamp your pipe material, so you have hands-free access to prime, glue and securely couple your pipe material. With the optional extension, you'll get full 12-inches of clamping and pressing power.
It's a versatile work platform.
Thanks to its flexible design, the PipeFitter lets you get your pipe projects up and off the ground for clean and accessible solvent application. Simply clamp PipeFitter to the opposing pipe ends and you have ample room to deburr, apply solvent to the fitting socket and pipe and securely assemble while the surfaces are still wet and fluid.
It a Quality Control Tool
Fully seated joints are accomplished every time. The PipeFitter uses 1 ton of pressing power to fully seat each connection and then securely holds the joint surfaces together until the solvent cement sets and cures. No more backing out, leaks, failed structural tests or line failures due to failed connections.
It's a one-ton machine press.
Weather you're joining 3”, 4” or 6” PVC pipe, the PipeFitter's power allows you to singlehandedly complete the vital link in a PVC pipe installation. A strong, full inserted and fully bonded connection. The PipeFitter is made of solid steel with the industrial pressing power of a one-ton machine press and the clamping power of a vise.
You can even use it as a portable and secure handle to move unwieldy pipe lengths around the job site.
