The Siamese Connection is also known as the splitter. This is often used in order to allow more than one hose to be used in just one pipe in just one location. This the reason why it has gotten its name because this only comes from one pipe.

This can be useful for letter C which means that you will be able to keep the line connected to the fire protection system which is very important especially when the sprinkler lines need to turn on in case of emergency situations. Fire is known to be devastating for a lot of people. People need to be extra vigilant to make sure that they will stay safe.
