The 1/2" (16 mm) barb elbow X 1/2" MPT is used for connecting the drip lateral with .520 ID to .540 ID (16 mm) to a PVC pipe using a PVC tee with 1/2" FNPT. By using a double barb, the tubing is pushed over the barb for a very tight fit. Use for a layout of drip tubing or drip line.
The Drip Store’s black color 1/2" (16 mm) barbed drip fittings are available in a variety of configurations for 1/2" drip line or drip tubing with .520 to .540 (16mm) ID, providing a low cost and simple method for drip line and drip tubing installation.
The 1/2" (16mm) barb fittings are used in the installation of any brand name drip line or drip tubing. To connect the 1/2” (16 mm) drip tubing or drip line, use a hand pruner to cut the drip tubing or drip line, being careful to keep dirt from entering the drip tubing. Insert the barb side of the fitting into the end of the 1/2” drip tubing or drip line by forcing the drip tubing over the barb side.
