    Gets the job done

    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.

    garden organization

    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!!!

    Love these fittings!

    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.

    Yay! All the high quality barbs!

    Tape x 1/4” barb with valve

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

    These are very useful. I have control over which lines to open and shut.

    Greater control over zones

    Love these. I put one on every drip line to better regulate my watering. They’re easy to reuse and hold up well, which makes them economical!

    Shut off valve

    Works great


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.
