This fitting has a shutoff valve which can be used to turn off an individual line of drip tape. 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 (LSB/LSBSO) and end fittings (LSGS/LSPLUG). If leakage continues to occur, a 1/4 turn with pliers should suffice.
This fitting allows a flow of over 80 GPH at 10 PSI.
Use this fitting to shut off an individual line of drip tape. The barb on this fitting is slightly larger than the a standard 1/4" barb. Use the Yellow Handle Punch or Miracle Punch to make the appropriate sized hole for this fitting. Does not connect to 1/4" tubing.

- These valve barbs are, in my opinion, a necessity for most drip systems. I'm constantly needing to isolate a row to patch holes in the lines, to move the drip tape to weed, etc etc etc, and it makes it much easier when I can just turn off each row separately.

Love these valves. I have found that they work perfectly with vegetable garden planted along with landscaping that might need more water.
I can install these valves and only water my vegetable. Perfect!!!

- Gives me precise control over an entire garden full of plants with differing watering requirements. Also indispensable in the fall when I need to cut off water to the tomatoes to accelerate ripening before the frost.

- I like the ability to turn water on or off where needed. A valve on each tape allows me flexibility to conserve water.
