Irritec Perma-Loc Tape x FHTS Adapter
This 3/4" Female Hose Thread (FHT) Swivel Adapter connects 5/8" drip tape to any 3/4" garden hose thread water source.Garden Hose Threads (GHT, FHT, MHT) are unique in that they make the water-tight seal with a flexible washer between the two connection pieces. Thread seal tape is not recommended since it can inhibit the full threading together of the pieces, thus not allowing a tight leak-proof seal. GHT are not compatible with NPT or IPT/IPS fittings commonly found in iron pipe or PVC water systems.
About Drip Depot Perma-Loc Drip Irrigation Fittings:
Perma-Loc fittings and adapters are heavy duty reusable connectors for all your connection needs. They are very easy to use and require no special tools. Perma-Loc fittings are available for both Tubing and Tape. The Tubing connectors can be used on blank tubing as well as drip line.
- To Use: Simply push tubing or tape over barbed end, then hand-tighten locking nut over tubing or tape for a permanent secure fit.
- To Remove: Just loosen locking nut, pull tube off and re-use as needed.
Perma-Loc fittings look similar to traditional flange and locking nut plumbing connections; however, in most cases, they work differently. Unlike a typical locking nut which comes off the fitting and slides over the tubing, a Perma-Loc locking nut is usually not removed from the fitting. The exception to this rule might be some of the larger 3/4" and above tubing fittings. Select a video from above to see how the Perma-Loc drip irrigation tubing and tape fittings work.
Perma-Loc tape fittings are compatible with: Chapin Tape, Irritec P1 Tape, John Deere T-Tape, and Toro Aqua-Traxx Tape
