Note: For .710" OD drip tubing only (Blue Stripe style). DO NOT USE with our 700 or 620 Raindrip poly tubing.
Use compression elbows to make 90 degree turns in 1/2" drip poly tubing (.710" OD). Tubing may kink if you try to make a tight turn without an elbow. Blue rings indicate 710 fittings. If you plan to remove your fittings or drip tubing in your drip irrigation system, use our Direct-Loc elbow.
How To Install a Drip Irrigation Elbow
Irrigation Direct Product Tutorial
710 SERIES COMPRESSION ELBOW: DD-L710
The 710 series compression elbow from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation to make a 90 degree turn in half inch solid tubing or drip emitter tubing. Using an elbow will prevent the hose from kinking in tight turns.
When installing, be sure to match up the drip tubing you are using to the correct compression fitting. 710 tubing uses the 710 fittings.
Look for the blue compression rings at either end of the elbow. The blue ring indicates 710 size
Installing a compression elbow is quick and easy.
To begin, simply cut your drip tubing with a pair of clippers or scissors. Make a straight cut across the pipe to ensure a tight fit. Insert your drip tubing into one end of the compression elbow and press inward, rocking the pipe and fitting back and forth. Use your thumb as a guide or score a mark on the tubing with your fingernail about 1 inch up from the end. Push until one inch of tubing is inserted into the fitting
When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.
Compression fittings make a very tight seal and are difficult to pull apart. If you plan to remove your elbow or detach your drip tubing, use our Direct-Loc elbow
Direct-Loc fittings are perfect if you need to remove tubing for the winter.
Compression fittings come in several sizes and all are color coded for easy identification. Other common sizes are 620 and 700.
