Questions & Answers

I had a tear in a main line so cut the bad section off and applied this coupling to one side. Then I tried to connect the second side. NO WAY!

I pushed with all my might. I turned and pushed it. I turned it the other way and pushed it. I tried gently pushing. Gently turning. Frustrating! Easy Fit ii is not! Not sure what to do now. What is the magic for this coupler?
Asked by: Susan
These Rainbird couplers are horrific. I could attach one end but the other end will not - maybe there are some tricks to do it, but I am just taking these back. Home depot doesn't carry the kind that I used for years with no problem. I think Lowes still carries the old kind that actually work so going there now. Also I searched for info or video on exactly how to use these "easy-fit" couplers but nothing to be found at all. Absolute disaster of a product.

How does it work?

I accidentally cut the rubber tubing. I have tried to fix it with the easy-fit coupling. The connection to the hose is not snug and too loose and so the water leaks fro both sides.

1/2 in. Easy-Fit Coupling is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 27.

I used to use the DIG Universal Nut-Lock Couplings for years that used to be sold at Home Depot and they worked great with no issues. These are hard to put on and about half of them leak and no amount of pushing and twisting is going to solve that. When push them in, I can feel them get all the way to the end and they still leak. I have wasted 6 of these so far because the leaks are so bad that I had to replace them. I am going to make a big order online from another supplier for the DIG couplers so I have enough of those to last a number of years since they are not sold by Home Depot anymore and these are a waist of time and money.

Tried to fix a slit in my sprinkler tubing, thought I had cut the section too short & that was the reason I couldn't connect them, so I cut another section, added another coupling, still couldn't get the 2nd coupling to connect. While I think of myself as a handywoman & fairly strong, had to call in my husband to wrestle these couplings on after multiple tries, no go...still leaking. Going to try wrapping the suckers in teflon tape. Love the response from Rainbird to another poster's review - "try twisting". Yep, tried that, tried hitting it with a hammer. Nothing worked. Have no idea why Home Depot carries these things that have such a high failure rate. This did not meet my expectations!

This line of fittings seems to work well, but inserting the hose was very difficult. I tried cutting small slots on the end of the tubing with a Buck knife and it really made a difference. I made four small cuts just under 1/8 inch spaced equally. That allowed the tubing to get started into the connector. So far, they work fine...no leaks. They do require a lot of force though.

I was trying to repair an irrigation system that had both 1/2" and 5/8" tubing. This fit the bill well as I could use it to join disparate size pipes. I didn't find it that hard to join the ends. Just make sure you have a clean end to start with and be very careful when coupling it to 1/2 tubing.

Picked up 2 today with an end flush and 50' of hose. I did ask where the other brand went and was told they have not had it for along time, to bad for me and what seems like others also. I have been doing drip systems for as long as they have been made, 30/40 years and never had a problem until now. Wanted to finish the system today so, guess I'll try oil or ice water like the other guys. What features? Do I like, NO How long have I had it, 2 hours Meet expectations, Not even close!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hard to install, too many defective If you are physically unable to apply at least 50lb of lateral force by gripping two soft tubes, forget trying to install these connectors yourself. They are very hard to connect. Also, sometimes one side will simply never connect, even with over 100lb of force. Sometimes after mashing one side on, you sweat for half an hour, fail to get the other side to connect, forcing you to cut pipe, because the connected side can't be removed. So you permanently lose hose length, which in some cases means replacing a long stretch of installed pipe. If there were a tool to install the connection, this would be a nice product.
