Use the .580 Compression Tee for creating 3 way branches in .580 od poly tubing or soaker hose. The Black and yellow compression fittings are unique, as besides being compression they also have male hose threads to make them very versatile. For instance if you have a tee buy simply using a cap, you can make the tee into elbow or coupling if need be.
Male hose ends also make it easy to attach your soaker hose or poly with a female fitting, which makes the system easy to put together and take apart for winter storage.
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
