The 3/4" compression end cap with flush valve is used at the end of the 3/4” drip tubing or drip line. The flush valve is used for automatic flushing of the drip line at the beginning and the end of each irrigation cycle. At the start of each irrigation cycle, when reaching 0.6 GPM, the flush valve closes, and when pressure drops below 1 PSI the valve opens. The Drip Store’s 3/4” compression drip fittings with .940 OD (gray Insert) from NDS are used in the installation of drip irrigation using .940 OD drip tubing.

To connect the 3/4” drip tubing with .940 OD, cut the drip tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the drip tubing. Hold the fitting in one hand and the drip tubing in the other and force the tubing into the fitting while wiggling the drip tubing from side to side. "Walk" the drip tubing into the fitting until about 1/2” to 3/4" of the drip tubing is inside the fitting.
