A: The goof plugs can be used to plug holes in the ½” tubing that were made by a punch tool. The emitter must be removed by pulling it out of the hole and then the goof plug is inserted into the existing hole. The goof plugs cannot be used to plug a “built in” emitter in the ½” dripline. For more assistance, please call us at 1.800.322.9146 and speak live with a DIG product specialist.
A: These are good plugs for when you poked a hole you would like to now plug. I was able to just shove it into the hole to stop water from leaking. This is the hole punch I used to create the hole in the first place. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-1-4-in-Hole-Punch-D44/100130448
A: If you mean to close up the end of the drip line, just push the Goof Plug in. It helps to warm the hose a bit (I dunk it in a cup of hot water).
A: I don't think these will work on a standard home hose. You'll need to cut the hose and buy a hose repair connector. These are for irrigation hoses/tubing. If you need to pull out a dripper in the irrigation it'll leave a small hole. Use either end, depending on the hole size, and push it into the hole to block the hole. It can take some practice to figure out how to do it quickly and smoothly. Best of luck.
A: The G79B Goof Plug is a barbed plug with two different-sized ends used to plug holes on ½” poly drip tubing, or to close the end of 1/4″ micro tubing, 1/4″ soaker hose, and 1/4″ dripline. If you have any further questions, please contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146.
A: Yes you can.
A: Depends. If the hole you made is a “clean” puncture it should work. The goof plug has one end that is fatter than the other so determine which end to use that will NOT go easily into the hole you made. If you have “slit” the tubing you will probably have to dig up around it, cut the tube, and use a new coupler. Good luck!
A: If it's a clean hole and not a tear, yes.
A: you will need an inline connector to repair that
A: You can possibly use these or you can cut the line and use a straight connector.
A: These are to plug the tiny holes for emitters or lines. You'll want to cut the tube and use a compression coupling for this size hole. Good luck!
A: Yes, if you can fit it in the hole. Otherwise, cut the tube and add a straight connector.
A: Doesn’t it drive you crazy when someone answers a question with a question? The answer to your question is… It depends. Each one of these plugs is a different size, so as long as you can find the right one/size, you should be in great shape. These goof plugs are inexpensive and super reliable. Make sure you use the tool to make a clean cut/insertion. There are two different tools that you can purchase at Home Depot for using these plugs. I bought the lesser expensive one and it worked perfectly.
A: Yes the goof plugs are used to seal and plug a hole in ½” poly tubing. The goof plugs have a standard size plug on one side and a larger sized plug on the other side. Use the standard side for regular holes made by a punch tool, or to seal off the end of ¼” micro-tubing or dripline. Use the larger side for bigger holes in the ½” poly tubing.
A: A leak in what? They are designed to fit a hole in 1/2" drip irrigation tubing made with a drip tube punch. If the hole is around 1/8" or can be made 1/8" then maybe. If it is larger, no; if the tubing is softer than drip tubinhg, the plug will pop out.
A: No, just 20 plugs
A: It has been quite a while since I received these. I don't recall how many were in the package. But I don't believe it was 200. Sorry.
A: No. Just 20 total plugs in all.
A: Yes. Correct. They do have smaller incramental packages too. But yes they do come in 200.
A: The package comes with 20 plugs
A: I think you need to rephrase your question. When you purchased these, it’s a pack of 20. It’s about two bucks.
