Q:What clamps do I need with this coupling to repair a cut swing pipe?
by|Aug 9, 2020
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  If you’re connecting 2 pieces of EZ pipe with this coupler, you shouldn’t need a clamp since they’re barbed on both sides for use with the E-Z pipe which is more like a semi-rigid hose. You can use the EZ pipe flex hose like a swing arm by using the E-Z elbow couplers (search “rainbird elbow” and you should see the options). They’re barbed on one end, and threaded on the other. There should be 2 options available with either male or female threads depending on your connections. Hope that helps.

A:  I strongly disagree that you don?t need any hose clamps.. I learned the hard way yesterday. You will need a hose clamp for each barbed end, especially if connecting to a high-pressure lawn irrigation system.

              This product did not work for me. I prefer the gold fitting mfg by Rainbird. This one leaks and requires clamps. The gold colored fittings work without clamps. i.e. BC50 (see photo) which is not available at Home Depot in the store or online for delivery to the store.

              Thank you for the review. This EZ barbed coupling is used for swing pipe connections and underground irrigation (Sprinklers and Rotors). The BC50 that you are referencing is utilized for drip irrigation. The tubing for these types of applications are a bit different so the barbed connectors would not be interchangeable. However, Rain Bird has a Total Satisfaction Policy on its products, Please call 1-800-RAIN-BIRD to speak to a customer about your options.
