poly pipe with brass barbed adapter


Would welcome advice in best way to insert brass barbed to male ips adapter into 1-1/4" PE pipe. I should mention the pipe will be the water supply to a strucure, and also it's starting to get cold here in Reno, NV. Thanks!

I use a heat gun or my mapp gas torch. Slip 2 hose clamps over the end of the pipe, carefully apply heat to the pie end. Soon it will soften enough to insert the adapter with a little force applied. Tighten the hose clamps that you have positioned on the barbed section. Be careful with the heat. Especially if using a torch. Always keep the heat source moving and not stopping at one point on the pipe- it will burn it. I can't say how much heat to use as the pipe schedule and heat source plays a big part. Go slow- if it won't push in, apply more heat.

The inspectors are insistent on two apposing (180 degrees) stainless steel clamps on the pipe over the barbed end of the fitting. I've been told by a few how difficult the connection can be on larger size pipe. That said, I'm confident I'll have little problem if I procede slowly and follow your instruction. Perhaps I should mention that I'm a plumber. Thanks! again.
