Dawn Industries Saddle Tee 1" x 1/2" Saddle x FIPT for Poly Tubing

  • Dawn Industries Saddle Tee
  • 1 inch x 1/2 inch
  • Female Pipe Thread for Poly Tubing

This fitting is used when you need to add a 1/2 inch FPT tee to an existing poly pipe line.

A superior saddle tee for Polyethylene pipe that eliminates the hassles and problems associated with insert fittings. No removable gaskets or seals to lose. Molded-in barb seal. No clamps to rust or corrode. Lowest profile saddle tee available. T-Bolt and Nut made of fiberglass reinforced nylon. 2-1/2 in. length protects seal if pipe is kinked or damaged near the saddle tee. Patent #478189. Made in the USA.

This device is not self-tapping. An HTC-Combo Coring Tool is recommended to use along with this device to create a hole in the poly tubing.

To install the tee you will need a 14mm or 9/16 nut driver, or socket with socket wrench. An extension on a socket wrench will make installation much easier. Do not overtighten.

works great
this item was perfect for the situation I had. It was a hard item to find probably because the demand does not meet the depots requirements. So I found out any time you need sprinkler related parts turn to Sprinkler warehouse.

Simple to install coupling, just use care on the nut tension to avoid breakage as they're plastic.

I have 1" poly pipe which I need to connect to 3/8 funny tube that then connects my sprinkler head. Is there a connector from this saddle to the funny tubing? I'm thinking I need a 1/2 to 3/8 connecter. Thanks!
Michael on Apr 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The saddle has 1/2" female fitting so you need a 1/2" male swing pipe (funny pipe) elbow fitting to screw in and connect (slip) to funny pipe. If you are using funny pipe fittings with funny pipe, they will fit. Then, to screw into the head on the other side, you will need 1/2" or 3/4" funny pipe elbow fitting depending on your head. Normally spray heads will have 1/2" inlet while rotating (geared) heads will have 3/4" inlet. Check fittings here: http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/Swing-Pipe-Funny-Pipe-Fittings-s/228.htm
is this tee a self-tapping tee ?
charles b on May 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No it is not self tapping. You will need the punch tool that you deploy after attaching the saddle.
Which is the best saddle tee for poly or PVC pipe?
A shopper on May 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I live in the northeast and have used dawn industries kwik seal saddle tees on my poly-pipe based irrigation system. They are very easy to work with and provide a great seal. Can't say how they would do on PVC as the crimps may not grip PVC like they do poly.

Make sure you purchase the coring tool too. Otherwise, your other option is to self-tap which could result in a leak or plastic plugging one of your downstream sprinkler heads..........
Maximum outside diameter for 1" poly?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Normally about 1.169 inches for irrigation grade to 1.315 inches for high pressure poly pipe
