Flomatic Corporation is offering a new ½-inch break-off plug for 8-inch submersible ductile iron and stainless steel valves. 

Flomatic break-off plug
The new size helps the pipes drain quicker than the standard 3/8-inch size.

The plug allows water to drain from the pipe after the plug is broken by dropping a smaller pipe inside the diameter of the pipe. This makes for a lighter lifting weight.

In addition, it makes for a clean and simple pull of riser pipe by stopping water from accumulating at the surface of the water well.

The new break-off plug is made in 303 stainless or a high-strength engineered composite material. The new size helps pipes drain quicker than the standard 3/8-inch size.
