When I had my sprinkler system installed four years ago, the contractor recommended the low pressure drip system for my flower beds. The brown funny pipe was used and was laid on top of the mulch which seemed like an acceptable way to distribute the water. After several years of drought and severe watering restrictions, the squirrels and/or rabbits discovered they could get some water by chewing holes in my pipe. After laying in the Texas summer sun, the pipe swelled a little to the point the couplers that fit inside the pipe did not fit snug enough to stay in place and even pipe clamps did not grip tight enough to stop the leaks. The couplers that fit on the outside of the pipe did not work well for me because of the expanded pipe as they popped off after several times of water pressure building up inside the lines. I purchased every type and brand of coupler I could find in the retail stores in my area and ran across the Toro coupler that is slightly larger in diameter than the others and fit tight enough inside the pipe to stay in place. To be on the safe side, I used 2 pipe clamps for each of the 10 splices. My lines are now covered with mulch and I hope my problem has been solved.

I needed a screw clamp for a secure connection to Rainbird perforated pipe.
