1/4" INCH BARBED CONNECTOR: DD-C250

The quarter inch barbed connector from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation to connect two ends of quarter inch solid micro tubing or quarter inch soaker hose dripline. It will also connect 1/4" drip tubing to half or three quarter inch solid mainline poly tubing. As with all barbed fittings, no glue or lubricants are required.

Installing a barbed connector is quick and easy.

To begin, simply cut your drip micro tubing with a pair of clippers or scissors. Make a straight cut across the pipe to ensure a tight fit. Place your drip tubing over one end of the barbed connector and press over the barb.

When connecting inch micro tubing to inch solid poly tubing, begin by holding the tubing between your thumb and forefinger, squeezing slightly. Cut a clean hole in the inch tubing with our deluxe hole punch, which fits ergonomically in your hand. Press down with the hole punch and twist back and forth. Place one end of your quarter inch tubing onto one end of the barbed connector, then push the other end of the barbed connector into the inch poly tubing until it snaps into place.

When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.

To shut off sections or reduce the water flow through inch micro tubing or soaker hose, use our 1/4 inch flow control valve. Its great for use with watering in planter boxes, raised beds, containers, and vegetable gardens.

To terminate the end of tubing, be sure to install a goof plug.

Install a Bug Plug when attaching 1/4 inch tubing to drippers or emitters to keep insects from crawling up into the tubing.

The quarter inch barbed connector is just one in a full line of quarter inch barbed fittings available from Irrigation Direct.

Expert Advice

          Four Tips

          Drip Main line tubing, micro tubing, compression & barbed fittings

          Four simple steps

A Paper Clip Quickly Cleans a Hole Punch

Insert the wire to clear the tool

A good hole punch will actually cut a tiny circle out of the drip irrigation tubing. The plug of drip irrigation tubing can be removed from the cutting edge of the punch with a paper clip. Push it through the cutting end to clear any plastic debris.

Control Water Flow to Flower Pots With This Little Valve

1/4" Flow Control Valve inserts into micro tubing

If you installed a drip irrigation system to water hanging baskets or flower pots, put a 1/4" flow control valve on each pot. You can reduce the drip irrigation flow or shut it off completely. It's handy if the pot is has not yet been planted and you don't want to water it.

SPRINKLER SYSTEM INFORMATION

Sprinkler irrigation systems are commonly used in lawn irrigation systems and other planted areas where a spray or mist is desirable. For plants that require uniform coverage of water (grass, ground cover, seeds) a sprinkler irrigation system is appropriate.

If you are installing lawn sprinkler irrigation systems, Irrigation Direct carries a variety of supplies and parts like an adjustable nozzles for Rain Bird sprinkler heads. Our shrub adapters are perfect for garden sprinklers and shrub zones.

Combine pop-ups and rotors with electronic sprinkler controllers (timers), and inline valves to automate your landscape sprinkler irrigation system. Browse our Sprinkler System Supplies and Parts to find sprinkler nozzles, bubblers, swing assemblies, cut-off risers, Marlex 90s, and more.

DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM INFORMATIONz

Drip irrigation is a watering method which delivers water to plants slowly and right where they need it at the roots. Where typical pop-up sprinklers spray water into the air and onto plants, drip irrigation systems combine flexible poly drip tubing and drip emitters or "drippers" to both conserve water and save money.

Drip irrigation systems are not affected by wind and will greatly reduce evaporation and runoff common with traditional irrigation systems. Drip irrigation is the perfect solution for raised vegetable garden beds, hanging baskets, and potted plants.
