Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hardwire perfect for an odd job - inserting a ground rod
the objective was to drive in an 8 foot ground rod. someone on a forum had recommended rigging up galvanized pipe to a garden hose then injecting that into the soil and let hydrology do the work. after finding this product i figured why not try PVC for less than $4 investment including the 10' section and already had cement. turns out i was able to drill down about 5.5 feet with it and the soil further down was wet enough that the rod could easily be pounded the rest of the way with a 2 pound hammer. so including the price of water it was way less than renting a hammer drill and only took about an hour to get the rod in the ground. so this product definitely does what it's supposed to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeY works as intended
I use this with 3/4 PVC pipe for irrigation systems.
It is easy to use, and works fine in this application.
My only comment is that the slip end is not as tight a fit when compaired to the other 3/4 fittings I have purchased. But a liberal application of PVC glue gives a strong tight seal.

Broke upon initial pressurization of outdoor faucet. It not only leaked--the two pieces came apart!

It leaks. Similar to other write up, it leaks when you tighten it, it leaks more if you extra tighten it. I tried two hose washers, it still leaks. Too bad I found this out after I completed the gluing of the rest of the project.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ProCarpenter poor design
two piece design, has trouble sealing. if you over tighten, the o-ring comes unseated. not tight enough and it leaks. very irritating product

This part is NOT one piece as depicted. There is an articulation (swivel) between the PVC slip end and the FHT end. I have used this part in a low pressure system and it leaks like a sieve. Buyer beware.
