1/2" & 3/4" Threaded Fittings
The Drip Store’s threaded adapters can be used in a range of applications on any irrigation system, such as conversion from hose to pipe thread and others in a host of commercial and agricultural applications. When threaded pipe fittings are used in an irrigation system, they generally don't need to be as tight as most people think. Unlike the threads on bolts, threaded irrigation fittings are tapered, so they become tighter as they go deeper. While proper tension in tightening threaded fittings is really a matter of feel, it is best to go too loose rather than too tight. It's a quick fix if a fitting that is too loose leaks; simply give it another turn. Once there is slight resistance on the wrench, go to the point of proper orientation and stop.
