No Clamping, Coring, or Cutting Required
The Blazing Saddle cuts out clamping, coring, and cutting. Less digging required for installation – you only need a hole 8" diameter to the pipe to install. Reduce the costs of labor, training, tools, glue and primer. There’s no easier or more efficient way to tap pipe to install a sprinkler head. You can forget all the cumbersome aspects of insert fittings and get the job done faster.
Blazing Saddles are made of high impact ABS and contain no metal or chloride like other fittings on the market making them the most eco-friendly fitting.
Optimal Sprinkler Head Flow
The Blazing Saddle’s unique design delivers optimal flow to each sprinkler head. The tap delivers more than 7 gallons per minute at 40 PSI and 12 GP at 60 PSI. And there’s no problem with flow restriction: On 1" polyethylene pipe, there is less head loss than with a standard insert fitting; on PVC pipe, the Blazing Saddle’s contribution to head loss is equivalent to only 3 feet of plain pipe.
Tested to pressures over 400 PSI and put through vigorous on/off cycling in excess of 250,000 cycles, Blazing Saddles will last longer than the life of the irrigation system.
