They don't say so, but I had to use hose clamps after several blew off within weeks of installation. After that I replaced them all with compression fittings. The cost of clamps pushes the cost & effort way past any alternative fitting.

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.

the reason I only give it 3 starts was that it don't twist in like I thought it would. If it had a left and right thread then it would be a great product. If it did have a left and right thread then you would be able to screw it into both ends of the pipe at the same time..
