Irritec Perma-Loc Tubing End Cap
Perma-Loc Tubing End Caps are used to close the ends of your runs of poly tubing. The Perma-Loc connectors on these fitting are compatible with Drip Depot polyethylene tubing of the same size. The threads and cap on these fittings are standard garden hose threads and are compatible with most outdoor water spigots and common garden hoses. Hose thread fittings are not compatible with pipe threads (PVC or iron).
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.
