Package contents

- Quantity of three Habitech 1/4" Tubing to Faucet Adapters (3-Pack)

Tubing Compatability

Our 1/4" irrigation adapter is compatible with the widest range of brand name and generic 1/4" Tubing, featuring a large barb that helps ensure a water-tight seal. However it's important to know there is no standard sizing for drip irrigation tubing in the USA, so the exact measurements of each brand and model of 1/4" Tubing can vary by many millimeters, impacting what fittings are compatible.

How do I install the adapter?


1) Warm the end of the 1/4" irrigation tubing with hot water, so it will soften and stretch over the barb more easily.

2) Firmly push the end of the 1/4" irrigation tubing onto the exposed barb on the adapter. Push and twist the tubing until the barb is fully inserted.

3) Screw the adapter on to a garden hose or spigot to connect your water source.

Troubleshooting: Issues Attaching Tubing

If necessary you can heat the end of the 1/4" tubing in hot (not quite boiling) water to soften it, so it more easily pushes onto the barb on the adapter.

Troubleshooting: Issues With Leaking

If you are experiencing leaking, here are a few things you can check:

1. Your normal faucet water pressure may be too high for drip irrigation, which is designed to use a low flow rate. Try using a pressure regulator to lower the pressure to an optimal level for your drip system. 

2. Check to ensure that the tubing is completely pushed over the barb.

3. Check that the red rubber washer pre-installed inside the adapter is securely in place. Then ensure that the adapter is fully and tightly screwed onto the spigot or garden hose.
