Pipe Repair Isolator Saves Time
With the EasyFit Isolator, there’s no need to drain or freeze pressurized pipes before repair. The UK-based product is now available in the U.S. for HVAC, plumbing and mechanical contractors in commercial, industrial and agricultural industries.
“We discovered EasyFit Isolator because we had an application for work at the Veterans Administration Hospital. Instead of freezing lines, we looked at other products and decided this was the best for that project,” says Andrew Kan for the California-based company serving as the U.S. manufacturing representative. Because of their technical skills, the UK company partnered with them.
Videos on the website show how to clamp on the valve and drill into the pipe to install the EasyFit Isolator. Once in place, it’s a permanent valve that can be closed whenever work is needed.
“If you have to rent a machine to freeze the lines, it’s an expensive and tricky process. Also, with the unfreeze, there can be problems. This product is much faster and cleaner,” Kan says.
With EasyFit, you don’t have to shut off water to other areas to make repairs.
“In Arizona and Nevada, they can’t shut down the cooling loop, so in hotter states, there is interest from the HVAC side,” he says.
Currently, the California company sells EasyFit Isolators in three sizes for 1/2, 3/4 and 1-in. copper and PEX lines. Prices start at $250. In the future, they may add larger lines (up to 8-in.) for industrial use, Kan says.
