580 Drip irrigation, Soaker Hose Compression fittings
are designed to fit easily, yet snug, over .580 o.d. soaker hose and main line
poly drip tubing. These black and yellow fittings are unique that they are the
only drip fittings that have male garden hose threads on all the compression
ends, making them truly unique in the industry. With the threaded ends you can
turn a simple tee into a coupling, or an elbow by simply screwing on a garden
hose cap (item #141).
These fittings were sold by Fiskars in the 90’s and up until 2006. Made
popular under different brands “Moisture Master" and "Better Homes
and Garden”, these products were sold for years at many large chain stores.
They're alive and well and still available with an increased line of fittings
such as shut off valves, crosses and even a parts kit. If your looking to start
your first drip or soaker hose system, this is where you want to start!
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.
