    Perfect Product

    I’ve been a Dripworks customer for years. Their products & service are the best! I’ve been able to customize & then irrigate my numerous gardens with their innovative technology. If you have questions, they have the answers.

    Always quick and Accurate

    I have used Dripworks for many years and always found their products and service to be excellent. I usually receive orders in Arizona in 3-4 business days, even with regular shipping. I have recommended them to many friends. MUCH cheaper than the big box stores with a better selection and knowledgeable people who can help. My go to, always.

    Provides Flexibility

    These drip tape feeder valves allow me to easily seasonally isolate unused segments of my drip system, to temporarily shut off individual rows or beds for harvest or re--planting, or to isolate a segment of my system for repair or alteration. This provides a great deal of flexibility in how I manage my drip system throughout the growing seasons. (5000 sq ft mini "market garden")

    Maintains mainline pressure with line failure

    I water acres of vegetables. These are my preferred valves because of the small Barb. I can have a line blowout/damaged and because of the small size of the Barb my entire zone does not go down, the pressure stays up in the mainline. They also do not leak as bad as larger barbs. I do on all of my barbs however remove the casting line with a knife to help a good seal. They do not flush drip tape well & they take significant time to fill the drip tape.

    1/4" barbs for drip tape

    I like these barbs and having a shut off to isolate one row of plants is great! They work well. Just make sure that you cut the drip tape with good sharp sheers and push the tape fully onto the barb, before tightening it down. Tug on the tape to test and be sure to periodically check them, as until you get the method down, they can pop off. Once you master the method, these parts work great.

    irrigation control

    These are great for any gardener, who wants to control the amount of water in their garden. I use them with my raised beds. Sometimes a line is not needed, but what to do when there is no valve. These are perfect.

    Quality product

    I’ve used drip tape for about 6 years and really love the valves used with the drip tape. Super easy to install and allows you to adjust flow on certain rows if you need to. I have a 20 x 40 garden space and the drip tape and attachments are perfect. They last years.


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 a standard 1/4" barb. Use the Purple Handle Punch or Miracle Punch to make the appropriate sized hole for this fitting. Does not connect to 1/4" tubing.
