Perma-Loc Tubing x 400 Barb Takeoff Valve
This Perma-Loc Tubing (600 series) x 400 Barb Takeoff Valve can be used to connect our 1/2" (.600" ID x .700" OD) poly tubing or dripline as lateral lines from any 3/4" or larger poly tubing used as your mainline. The 7mm/400 barb requires the larger punches, such as Drip Depot items #1550 or #14544, to make the correct size hole in the sidewall of the mainline tubing.
- 7.0 (400 barb) is recommended for flow rates of up to 2.5 GPM per line
The Perma-Loc connector on this fitting is compatible with Drip Depot polyethylene tubing of the same size.
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.
