Warnings: Always heat up well pipe slightly with a torch before inserting fittings. Be very careful not to overheat the plastic pipe.
Also called hose barb connectors, most plumbing contractors and DIY gurus are familiar with this product being used for joining metal pipe to flexible hoses. In various forms, hose barb connectors are also used with fuel system components. This 1" Barbed Insert x 1" Male Threaded Cast Bronze Adapter is specifically used for well pipes. Homeowners will find this item useful as a replacement part if they have well water delivered to their homes through a ground well or cistern system.
When installing as an underground connection, installers should use two hose clamps with brass fittings to keep the item intact. This adapter is particularly designed to fit HDPE well pipes. If the seal is not watertight after applying hose clamps, a larger-sized barbed insert should be used to achieve a snug fit.
