A drip irrigation Flow Control Valve allows you to adjust or stop the flow of water through 3/4" .940 OD poly tubing. Add them to garden row plantings, garden boxes, pots, and hanging baskets to turn off the water supply when not in use. Gray Rings indicate 3/4" fittings. For 1/4" drip poly tubing, use our 1/4" Flow Control Valve.
How To Install a Drip Irrigation End Cap
Irrigation Direct Product Tutorial
940 SERIES COMPRESSION END CAP: DD-EC940
The 940 series compression end cap from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation for capping off the ends of three quarter inch solid tubing. The end cap unscrews for easy flushing and draining of your drip irrigation system.
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 ring at end of the fitting. The gray ring indicates 940 size.
Installing a compression end cap is quick and easy.
To begin, simply cut your drip tubing with a pair of clippers or scissors at the desired location where you want the end cap installed. Make a straight cut across the pipe to ensure a tight fit. Use your thumb as a guide or score a mark on the tubing with your finger nail about 1 inch up from the end. Insert your drip tubing into compression end and press inward, rocking the pipe and fitting back and forth. Push until one inch of tubing is inserted into the End Cap.
When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.
The EC940 end cap is just one in a full line of three quarter inch compression fittings available from Irrigation Direct.
