Capital Improvement Connection

Specify the Team Capital Improvement Connection (CIC) for your next capital improvement project. Team’s CIC provides valve control today, and pipe replacement tomorrow, even upsizing of the pipe if necessary. This is made possible by the unique design of its integral mechanical joint connection coupled with the fact that the host pipe is not a permanent part of the CIC.
