The Slip-Lock Coupling is used to connect outdoor mist cooling system lines and assembles in seconds with a simple insert and twist motion. The unique brass Slip-Lock design can be used with both low and high pressure (up to 160 psi) systems as the coupling grips tighter when the pressure increases. Additionally, the coupling and tubing can be disassembled by simply compressing the ferule against the body and pulling away from the tubing, making the Slip-Lock coupling a versatile mist system fitting.
Compatible with Orbit professional outdoor mist cooling system and any 3/8 in. flexible tube mist kit
I purchased a Orbitz Pro Misting system 4 years ago and it is wonderful, but it is not maintenance free. The tubing degrades and has to be replaced about every 3rd year. The brass fittings have to be cleaned..., the harder your water, the more often you have to clean them. They sell a special cleaner, which I recommend. I used a descaler once and it ruined the rubber washers. Replacement parts are readily available.
These things are junk, they leak. I had to lube up the hose and chamfer the hose ends to get them in all the way and they still leak. Save yourself the headache and buy Imperial Eastman fittings. At least they do not leak water all over. I guess you get what you pay for. Lesson learned.
