Important Tips: Follow ALL instructions. Failure to do so may result in property damage and/or personal injury.
  • Aqua tap is only to be used for tapping water lines. (DO NOT tap into gas, oil, air, steam lines, etc.)
  • Do not tap water lines with pressure exceeding 120psi
  • Always wear eye protection
  • If tapping time exceeds 5 minutes, replace saw or pilot-bit
  • If wobbling occurs while drilling, do the following: Remove oil drill and replace again. (Check alignment with rod hex.) If wobbling continues, replace drill rod.
  • Occasionally lubricate drill rod, and threads.
  • Tighten down cap against o-rings firmly to grip rod. If kickback occurs, replace o-rings (7/8" x 5/8").
  • Water leaking through valve adapter is normal. This does not mean tap is complete. Continue drilling until completely through the pipe wall.
  • When grabbing onto saw with pliers, grab onto nut, or base of saw only.
  • TO REPLACE WIRE ON A PILOT BIT: Using eye protection, have approx. 1/2" of wire sticking out of each side of the pilot bit and squeeze wire downward.

Before tapping PVC pipe:

  • Do not tap within 3 feet of ends of pipe, or closer than 18" of other taps.
  • Avoid tapping a discolored pipe surface
  • Only tap pipe that has been installed according to pipe manufacture's recommendations.
  • Install pipe saddle according to pipe manufacture's recommendations. (DO NOT overtighten)
  • Know locations of existing main valves, if necessary to shut off water system.
  • Have a quick exit. (Ladder etc.)
  • Have another employee near by.
  • Remove as much air as possible from the water system being tapped.
