There is nothing worse than seeing a drip irrigation system, which is an efficient way of watering with a blown off fitting, wasting water. Ratepayers in particular hate seeing this water wastage.

The folks at Antelco have thought about this and have developed a range called DB (Double Barb) fittings. They have been engineered to suit standard low density polyethylene (LDPE) sizes (13mm, 19mm and 25mm) and the driplines that are on the market.

TIP: Care needs to be taken when selecting the dripline fittings as the sizing is stated in outside diameter not inside diameter as standard LDPE e.g. 16mm OD Dripline with a Wall thickness of 1.0mm requires a 14mm DB Fitting.

The Double Barb provides a high retention rate for the poly pipe to the fitting. The fittings are constructed of high quality acetal ensuring rigidity and sharp barbs.

For those who want to minimize the blowout risk even further can install an Antelco Ratchet or "Cobra" style clamp.

When it comes to poly fittings not all are created equal, insist on using DB Fittings for your micro irrigation systems...
