Questions & Answers

How do I get the 1/2 inch tubing to stay on the end of this faucet connection?

It looks like I just slip the hose onto the end, but it won't stay on. What am I doing wrong?
Asked by: frustrated
Hopefully the long review I wrote will show up and help you with your question. Rain Bird changed the drip tubing adapter to a larger size, which makes it very tough to insert in the drip tubing. The old adapter was quite easy to insert and held very well once the knurled knob was screwed up over the drip tubing. Some people screw the knob in the wrong direction and then complain that the hose won't hold, and I suspect that is why Rain Bird changed to an adapter which is such a tight, pain-in-the-neck fit that once you force it in (probably by softening the tubing up with a flame first), it will probably hold even without being cinched up with the knob. Dumb. If this appears to be the problem you're facing, look for Amazon part ID #B07CBD4P16 for the adapter that used to be in this kit. I've bought those to replace the dumb, new part that Rain Bird puts in this kit.

Where would the Rain Bird Timer be located in the sequence of pieces? After the Back Flow?

Where would the Rain Bird Timer be located in the sequence of pieces? After the Back Flow?
Asked by: UhhClem
I don't have a Rain Bird timer but have used this part with both manual and digital timers of other popular makes. There is no need to put the timer after the back flow preventer, although it probably wouldn't make any difference. I have all the faucet connection kit pieces as one unit after the timer.

Is there a version of this for 60 psi for sprinkler systems like the 32ETI rainbird product!

Asked by: Dave
This is the same kit, just with the pressure reducer included. If you need 60 PSI, then do not install it. It works great!! I have it hooked into my Rainbird 3500 series sprinkler and works good.

How to prevent the connection between hose connector and pressure reducer from leaking ? Already tried two different units and still having problem

Made sure rubber gasket is seated properly, tried plumbing tape as well. Frustated!!
Asked by: RB
I installed a second rubber washer in the female side. That means there are two washers but in looking at it closely, the washer seat was recessed so much that a single washer would not close the gap. That fix held pressure without leaking. You should not have to do this but I just wanted to get the drip system operating. So instead of going to Rain Bird I tried the double washer trick.

Faucet Connection Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 35.

We are returning this because the part that connects to the 1/2" tubing leaks profusely at the juncture with the middle piece. Also, the product & the illustration don't match and there is no guidance as to how one 'easily' connects the 1/2" tubing.

Get another brand... this one leaks and now I see there are many reviews with a known issue. I tightened, added gaskets... still leaks between the regulator and tubing adapter. Works if you don't mind it spraying all over the place. Directions have an incorrect visual.
