 Product Description

White PVC Tee / Valve Cover for creating a clean and professional appearance on all pipe tee intersections and valve covers.  The top part of the tee / valve cover is solid which allows reducing to a smaller pipe on the top or allowing just the valve stem to stick up outside the cover.  Simply cut the top part of the cover to the outside diameter of the smaller pipe or valve stem with a pair of scissors.

Installation Methods:
1.) Use serrated stainless steel King Tacks which are pressed through the overlapping pieces of the fitting cover and will hold them securely. (Steam, Hot Water, etc)
2.) Use PVC Vinyl Z-Tape to seal the fitting cover to the fiberglass pipe insulation. (Cold Water, Chilled Liquid, etc)
3.) Use Proto One PVC Adhesive to glue the seams of the fitting cover. (Exterior Piping, USDA, Washdown Area, etc)
*Tacks, Vinyl Tape, and Adhesive are sold separately.

*PVC Tee / Valve Covers are available in 13 high gloss Colors!

Use the link below to view the PVC Size Chart to see what size PVC Tee / Valve Cover you need.  The PVC Fitting Size is based on both the size of the pipe and the thickness of the insulation.

*Example:  You have a main steam supply pipe that is 2" Iron with 1" thick pipe insulation (2 x 1).  The supply pipe then has branches that go to 1-1/4" pipe what you are insulating with 1" thick insulation as well (1-1/4 x 1).  The size of tee covers to order is based on the 2" Iron pipe (2 x 1 = #11).  You would then cut the closed top of the tee to fit the 1-1/4 x 1 pipe insulation on each tee.

  1. Tees, Elbows and insulation

    Posted by Don S. on 6th Dec 2019

    I found this product to work great. I especially found Bill to be very helpful with my order in the review and delivery.I installed the insulation on a new steam boiler and it was easy to use, with tacks and tape. When the pipe is reduced, i would use the same insulation at the tee or elbow and reduce with the insulation and tape over it. You have to plan your own job, but the product was great as was the service.


  2. Easy install good results

    Headline says it all.


  3. Easy install and looks great

    Posted by MTR Welding Works on 16th Jul 2019

    Quality product that installs very easy and looks like a pro installed it.


  4. Crucial part but finicky to get right

    Posted by Bill L. on 22nd Apr 2019

    I've not finished the project, but have installed enough of these to get a feel for the procedure. And it's normally a pain. The insulation has to be cut to fit, and then the plastic cover has to be cut to fit. Sometimes this is easy, like when running a T with the same pipe diameter, and other times it is a real PITA when it runs into an elbow or other PVC product. These old houses sure didn't consider that the insulation would ever get switched out. Also noticed that the mold for the product is uneven, so there are thin and thick parts to the PVC, making it a little more exciting for folks using a box knife to trim the edges.

    *Bill, sorry to hear about the trouble with installing on reducers and close to 90°s. A little effort now will pay off with good looks for decades to come! ~ BIP


  5. Great once installed

    Posted by John T. on 9th Nov 2018

    Kind of difficult to install especially when tee is reduced to a smaller pipe because you would have to cut the hole to size.

    Tacks were a little frustrating because wearing gloves, the tacks were small and difficult to insert. Even when inserting tacks prior to fitting cover on pipe. The tacks would puncture the PVC cover and create a crack in the cover, though that would be my recommended method of inserting tacks.

    After having said that, it is a a great item because it gives it a good looking product at the end and it is easier to use than other methods such as cutting into insulation or wrapping around the fittings.


  6. Looks great!

    Posted by Todd M. on 7th Aug 2018

    The PVC pipe covers look so much neater and cleaner than the old method! Makes the basement room feel clean and finished. Quick and easy to install. I'll be purchasing more for the rest of the basement.


  7. Works great

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jun 2018

    Easy to install and fits properly


  8. must have item

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2018

    These covers are the perfect thing to finish out the insulation of the pipes. They give it a nice professional appearance and its a lot quicker and easier than cutting 45's in the insulation. Worth every penny.


  9. PVC Tee cover

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Jan 2018

    Easy to install. Fit very well. Came with alot of insulation. Recommend buying the special pins to secure the cover.


  10. Very flexible mechanism for covering different T joints

    Posted by Tom S. on 19th Sep 2017

    I have a number of T joints that step down to a smaller pipe size from the main steam pipe.

    I liked having the ability to cut out the correct opening size of the pipe that is connected to the main pipe.

    I appreciated that I was supplied with more than enough insulation batting to cover any situation.

    The final result looks much better when the connections are all covered.

    I highly recommend investing in covers for your fittings.
