Use to attach .580 mainline drip tubing, or soaker hose to a hose bibb, spigot, hydrant, faucet, end of a garden hose, filter, pressure regulator, etc. The swivel end screws onto male hose threads. The compression end accepts hose with a .580 outside diameter.
Note: We have our customers tell us that our 580 fittings fit the Flexon soaker hose kits available in Lowes. Customers also tell us that the 580 fittings fit the 3/8" Miracle Gro brand of soaker hose.
|Using the #109 Female adapter and screwing it on to your tee, coupling, elbow or in-line valve and then using the compression end (of the #109) for your soaker hose or poly tubing, it allows you to easily disassemble your system. |
Instead of just using the compression end to attach your tubing, as shown in the first photo in the diagram to the left.
