Q:Is there a 30 or 45 degree elbow? I have tubing along the wall on the ground and just need it to come off slightly to attach timer.

A:  Unfortunately, we do not make a 30- or 45-degree elbow only a 90 degree. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146 or tech@digcorp.com.

    Q:Can these compression fitting be reused, i.e., remove the tubing and re-insert another tubing? If it can, How do you remove the old tubing?

      A:  I've done this when I have made a mistake, but with great difficulty. I used a pair of channel-lock pliers to crush the old tubing twice (90 degrees apart) in the same place and then twist out the old tubing. Replacement tubing was water-tight. Unless you are really stuck it's a lot easier to just use a new elbow...

      A:  The compression fittings use a simple wrist action; the polyethylene drip tubing is "walked" into the fittings for a very tight fit and it is very difficult to remove. It can be accomplished by forcing the fitting out as you move it from side to side and at the same time twisting it out. the fittings can be used again if you manage to get it out. DIG

        A:  Yes. Just takes a little while to get old tubing out

          A:  Yes, they can be used again as long as no adhesive type material is used.

            Q:Is there any functional difference between these all black adapters and those with the blue size indicatoro the ends? I know these are .7 OD and the colored ones are .71 OD. Other than the visual cue is there any reason to get one over the other? Thanks.

            A:  Some background on the .700 OD and .710 drip tubing with the fittings they used: The .700 OD drip tubing is probably the most common size made and used by commercial landscape dealers, distributors and Home Depot. The .710 OD drip tubing is also a common size of drip tubing that is made now and for many years by the Toro company under the blue stripes trade name. DIG elbows, tees and couplings with the blue compression inserts were designed to fit this .710 OD drip tubing size. The .710 OD drip tubing is also available at the HD without the blue stripes and at HD.com with the blue stripes. The black insert compression fittings are designed to fit the .700 OD drip tubing. The difference between the two sizes of fittings is about .06” so, it is easier to install the .710 fittings on .700 drip tubing and it is harder to install the .700 OD fittings on .710 OD drip tubing. In general, the .700 OD fittings with the .700 OD drip tubing will hold better under higher pressure and hotter temperature. DIG

              A:  The compression fittings with black color inserts are designed for a drip tubing with outside diameter of .700 OD. They also can be used to connect to a drip tubing with outside diameter of .710 OD, but will not hold under high pressure and heat. The compression fittings with blue inserts are designed for a drip tubing with outside diameter of .710 OD. They can also be used to connect to the smaller size, .700 OD drip tubing, but they will be harder to connect, however, they will hold better under very high pressure in any type of weather. David

                A:  The difference between the black compression fittings and the blue compression fittings is just the size. The black compression fittings are designed for use with .700” outside diameter polyethylene tubing, and the blue compression fittings are designed for use with .710” OD tubing.

                  Q:I'm getting leakage with barbed-insert elbow adapters in a new 25PSI system, though the adapter is rated for 30PSI. Other similar products say a clamp is "required" for barbed inserts like this, to avoid leaking. Rather than clamping every elbow in my system I'm more inclined to replace all of them with this compression elbow. Is this some detail that experts already know - don't use inserts, use compression fittings? Is there a recommendation for one over the other? I'm burying some of these and would probably prefer compression to insert+clamp to avoid clamp metal corrosion and later "mystery" leakage. It would help to find a resource with details on these choices. Thanks.

                  A:  It is important to know the size of drip tubing used in your installation, in general, the compression fittings used with the correct size drip tubing will provide over time the best connection for a leak free drip irrigation system. Size of drip tubing on the market and manufacturers: Drip tubing with .630 OD (16 mm) available from Rain Drip and Rain Bird: use compression fittings with green insert for the .630 OD or 16 mm barb fittings. Drip tubing with .700 OD (17.8 mm) available from DIG, Rain Drip and Rain Bird: use compression fittings with black insert for the .700 OD. You can use the 17 mm barb fittings with low pressure. Drip tubing with .710 OD (18 mm) available from Toro and DIG: use compression fittings with blue insert for the .710 OD. Do not use barb fittings on this size. The .710 drip tubing will have the highest flow rate rating with lower head loss. David

                    A:  I generally use this type of connector for most all fittings and have not had leaking issues. I use the elbows, “T”, and straight compression fittings through my yard.

                    by|May 5, 2023

                      A:  If you have the pressure in your drip system reduced down to 25 PSI, you should have no leaking from the barb connectors. Please give our technical service department a call (800) 322-9146 and we can troubleshoot your system further.

                        A:  In general, DIG brown barbed fittings including the elbow tee and coupler are designed to be used with all brown PC dripline used in the market today including DIG. The barbed fittings do not require clamps and can operate up to 30 PSI without leaking. If the barbed fittings used are leaking, make sure to have a 25 PSI pressure regulator, as pressure may be high. If the elbow barbed fittings continue leaking, cut the drip line, remove the old elbow, and insert a new one. If leaking continues, my suggestion is to contact DIG customer Support at 800-344-1172 with this issue. Regarding the compression fittings, the .700 OD compression fittings will hold the drip tubing or dripline on the outside diameter and can hold to higher pressure.

                          They work good when you connect them and get them set up, BUT if you should need to re arrange. They won’t do.
