This fitting is used to connect 5/8" drip tape to mainline tubing. Simply punch a hole in the mainline tubing, connect the drip tape to the tape end of the fitting and insert the barbed end into the punched hole.
To create a tight seal, be sure tape is warm and pliable before attaching the 5/8" start fittings (/ ) and end fittings ( / ). If leakage continues to occur, a 1/4 turn with pliers should suffice.
This fitting allows a flow of 80 GPH at 10 PSI.
The barb on this fitting is slightly larger than the a standard 1/4" barb. Use the Purple Handle Punch orto make the appropriate sized hole for this fitting. Does not connect to 1/4" tubing.
The products are a breeze to work with and hold up well. I believe they will last many years without needing to be serviced.
Thanks for a great product!
