The drip tape connector with 1/4" barb and shut off valve is used to join a 5/8” drip tape into a poly line lateral by punching a hole into the poly line using a punch and inserting the barb side of the fitting into the poly line. 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, ensuring a quality water-tight connection. Use the ball valve to open or close a drip tape line, with one quarter turn to open or close the valve.
The Drip Store’s drip 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.
