Use drip irrigation compression elbows to make 90 degree turns in 3/4" .940 OD poly tubing. Poly tubing may kink if you try to make a tight turn without an elbow. Compression fittings require no glue. Gray Rings indicate 3/4" fittings.
How To Install a Drip Irrigation Elbow
Irrigation Direct Product Tutorial
940 SERIES COMPRESSION ELBOW: DD-L940
The 940 series compression elbow from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation to make a 90 degree turn in three quarter inch solid tubing. Using an elbow will prevent the hose from kinking in tight turns.
When purchasing, be sure to match up the drip tubing you are using to the correct compression fitting. 940 tubing uses the 940 fittings.
Look for the gray compression rings at either end of the elbow. The gray ring indicates 940 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
Repeat this process for the other end.
When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.
The L940 elbow is just one in a full line of three quarter inch compression fittings available from Irrigation Direct.
