New drip system leaks...

helixgreenJuly 27, 2014

I have a garden timer connected to a pressure regulator, anti-siphon, swivel adapter, and 1/2 inch drip line. Water sprays out of the connection to the drip line. I bought everything at Lowe's so I would think they should be compatible, but perhaps that's assuming too much. The connection is tight enough that I couldn't pull the drip line out of the connector. Is that just a bad connector to use?

I've looked for a universal type non-swivel connector on the internet, but so far I have just found ones that connect to a hose. I've also learned there is a difference between hose threads and pipe threads so I need something that connects to pipe threads. Anybody know a good place to find one? Or a set of pieces you know works together?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

heli,

Get an adapter that goes from Pipe Thread to Hose Thread. There is one. JMHO Aloha
