These work great for connecting my poly pipe sections together. They screw into the end and can be held watertight with a hose clamp. I’m not running that much pressure (just a small sump pump) but the coupling works well to hold the sections of pipe together.

About 1/2 the ones I installed leaked
Spent hours making sure I had everything I needed to run water brought the woods to a food plot. I get up in the mountains and get a variety of these different fittings installed and clamped. Turn on the water and about half of them leaked. DONT waste your time or money with any of these type of fittings. Frustrating. Tried clamping right at edge, then back a little over the barbs, hearing the pipe more or less, nothing prevented the leaks...

    I bought these to connect sections of 1 1/4" black polyethylene pipe (poly pipe). They are very sturdy and fit snug in the pipe. You can't use any type of glue to connect poly pipe to ABS or other piping. So these are a necessary component. They are a nice length and seem rigid and well made.

    Caused Leaks
    Used a handful of these a couple years ago to repair leaks in the sprinkler lines after digging some irrigation trenches. They’re all now failing and im having to dig up all the sections where these were used. Definitely don’t recommend using these. What a headache.

      leaks
      Adding the threaded ends reduced the number of barbs. If these arent installed perfectly. They leak. In fact. All of mine leaked. Cutting them out to replace with the grey originals

          Don’t quite understand why the threads run in opposite directions. Would be great to be able to twist one way and get both ends threaded and coupled at once on T and in-line fittings.
