      Sorry to say that every Apollo blue twister coupling, tee, I used leaked. I used 2 Pinch clamps and they still leaked. I then used a hose clamp, and it stopped the leak every time. I wish Home Depot carried the brown rain bird couplings and tee’s. The only ones they stocked never leaked using the pinch clamps.

      Hose clamps fail, Blue Twister succeeds
      Hose clamps are insufficient to secure patches to black PVC pipe due to the screw mechanism being made out of cheap metal and failing to hold the screw. The Blue Twister Insert Coupling is tight enough to maintain a secure patch by itself but hose clamps can be used to prevent any loosening of the insert over time.

      Where to place clamp on Blue Twister
      Blue Twister connection data states clamp placement is 1/8 to 1/4 inch in from end of the pipe when squarely cut fully installed. Is there a potential problem if clamping is on ANY part of the barbs, thread or unthreaded barbs? https://apolloflow.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/ss-irrigation-blue-twister.pdf
