5/8" Drip Tape Adapter to .700 OD Drip Tubing

5/8 in.  Drip Tape Adapter to .700 OD Drip Tubing

The drip tape x drip tubing adapter is used to connect the 5/8” drip tape into the .700 OD drip tubing. To use this drip tape connector, turn the sleeve counter-clockwise, insert and push the drip tape over the barb and secure by turning the outer sleeve clockwise to go over the drip tape. To connect the drip tubing into the compression fitting side, insert the .700 OD drip tubing into the compression side of the fitting, pushing and wiggling the tubing back and forth into the fitting. The 1/2" compression fitting side uses a simple wrist action and the drip tubing is "walked" into the fittings for a very tight fit, ensuring a quality watertight connection. No tools, glue or clamps are required.

The Drip Store’s drip tape fittings are available in many configurations to meet all types off applications in the layout and installation of drip tape.

The drip tape fittings use a sleeve assembly over a body with barb insert, allowing the user to install the many fittings that might be needed throughout the installation of the drip tape. The larger sleeve makes the drip tape fittings easier to install and tighten.

An advanced sealing interface with a long barb provides guides for the drip tape to slide over the barb for a secure seal. Our drip tape fittings are made of high impact UV resistant plastic and can last for many years.

In most cases, drip tape should be operated at 10-15 PSI, although this fitting could be used at higher ranges.  Be sure to secure the tape to the fitting by turning the down-locking nut clockwise until tight over the barb.

Installation for Drip Tape

Drip tape can be installed easily either above or below the ground. The fittings are designed mainly for use in vegetable gardens or for row crops below or above grade.  Use these drip tape fittings to connect a 5/8” drip tape into drip tubing, PVC pipe or lay-flat pipe.
Basic layout:
Most often, a vegetable garden or row crops is planted in parallel rows. This makes the layout of a drip tape very easy. If using a poly tubing as the main line per each zone, run the mainline of 1/2", 3/4" or 1” drip tubing perpendicular and along the rows and to the end of the designed zone.  
Steps to install the drip tape:
Step 1: Near each row, punch a hole in the drip tubing using a punch.
Step 2: Insert a drip tape reducer (see A026) into the drip tubing by inserting the barb side of the drip tape, with one per each row.
Step 3: Connect the drip tape into the tape connector side by turning the sleeve counter-clockwise, inserting the drip tape over the barb end of the connector and turning the sleeve clockwise to lock.
Step 4: Lay out the drip tape along the row and near the plants
Step 5: Turn the water on and flush the line
Step 6: Close the end of the drip tape using the tape end model A027, A031 or A033 with flush valve
