Reed's PEGR is a Static Electricity Grounding Accessory. It weighs 1.5 lbs. This accessory provides a path to the ground for any static charge from static build-up on plastic pipe. Even for water services, there is a possibility of a spark discharge of sufficient energy to cause ignition if the proper air/gas mixture is present. Use of this static electricity grounding accessory is a precaution that can dissipate the charge and minimize the possibility of ignition. It is strongly recommended to use this grounding accessory with PE Squeeze-Off Tools and Guillotine Pipe Cutters in all gas applications.
