The adaptor may be attached to the tapping adaptor by welding or glueing depending upon the material of the tapping adaptor or may be formed integrally with the outlet conduit. The flange of the adaptor has an annular face positioned to engage the gasket of the gate valve. The annular face may be recessed and an annular rim may be formed radially outwardly of the annular face.
