In plumbing, and household practice, there are often cases where it is necessary to connect to a pipe, make a drainage. For example, to connect a washing machine. For this, the water pipe or hose is usually pulled to the swing manifold, or the pipe is piped and the tee is installed.
In the old Soviet houses the pipes are so inconvenient and awkwardly laid that it is tantamount to having to go through the whole system again.
But there is a way out! You can make a side-by-side clamp in any near-located highway. So, more …
How to make a simple insertion into a steel pipe with your own hands
What is needed?
- Drainage system (tie-in) – 1 pc.
It can be bought from plumbing shops, but before that, be sure to specify which pipe you have, to whom the connection will be made. I took 1/2 inch.

Further sandpaper we zashkurivaem a place of dressing of a yoke. The surface should be flat, without old paint and rust. Wear a clamp-tie, before installing a sealed gasket that comes complete with a sidebar.
Next, carefully tighten the 4 bolts of the frame. It is necessary to twist gently, alternately, it is better to cross crosswise. This is to ensure that the gasket is better than the village, and the collar itself does not warp.
The thread is ready. We connect the required hose to it.
We turn on and check the tightness. For this I recommend using a paper napkin or toilet paper, because it immediately sees drops, and the hand of all this may simply not be felt.
Also, after the tie-in, it will not be superfluous to install the valve before connecting the hose.
In general, such a tie will help you, it would seem in the most desperate situations.
The connection can be used for both cold and hot water. In addition, this is a very fast method and sometimes the only possible one.
