The smooth, round edges of polypipe or copper tubing and the sharp, pointed edges of a metal stud are like oil and water: they don’t mix very well. Without some kind of cushion, your customer’s pipes will rattle, or worse, succumb to galvanic corrosion, aka electrolysis. Metal stud insulators from Pipe-Tytes Inc insulate and isolate tubing, fit ½”, ¾” and 1” copper or polypipe tubing, and are tough enough to withstand temperatures of 212° F.
Squeezing into tight spaces to cut into studs is murder on your hands. Pipe-Tytes Inc felt your pain, and rose up to the challenge with the ET-5 Stud Punch. With an extended throat that can cut up to 3-1/2” deep into the stud and an offset handle to get into tight places, this durable yet lightweight punch will move to the top of your tool box in no time flat!
Hanging multiple lines of pipes on a single threaded rod is something you do all the time. So why does it cost anywhere from $8-$12 for one single rod and hanger? At Pipe-Tytes Inc, we asked ourselves that same question, and came up with an ingenious, money-saving answer: Add-A-Hanger. With up to 90% cost savings, and durable enough to run tubing through A/C chases, you’ll want to buy these by the dozen.
What single task puts most plumbers out of commission? Moving toilets.

When you have to work against gravity or irregular-sized holes, Pipe-Tytes Inc’s Suspension Clamps can save the day, and your sanity. These durable polyethylene (plastic) clamps can be used in many applications to stand pipe away from wood or metal framing, and offer the added benefit of helping to reduce noise transmission and electrolysis. Available in ½," ¾," 1," 1¼," and 1½" sizes for copper or polypipe tubing.
Violins, guitars and other stringed instruments make their distinct sound via the process of resonance. Water rushing through pipes sitting directly on wood or metal studs can produce noise in a similar fashion, and it’s anything but music to one’s ears. Pipe Isolators by Pipe-Tytes Inc completely surrounds pipes and eliminates any contact between the pipe and stud, so when your customers turn on their shower or faucet, they’ll hear the most beautiful sound of all: silence.
Fastening a ¼” pipe to a 1” hole in a wood stud is a math problem that’s easily solved with Pipe Shims from Pipe-Tytes Inc.

Like many of Pipe-Tytes Inc’s plumbing accessories, it has the added bonus of eliminating pipe rattle. Call today to place an order!
