In 1972, Agricultural Products offered the first Compression Fittings. These fittings were needed because conventional insert fittings were causing existing polyethylene drip tubing to crack and split. Today, compression fittings are a preferred method of connecting PE tubing, because of their full-flow characteristics and ease of installation.
Now, Jain Irrigation’s API™ compression fittings are made with glass-reinforced polypropylene or PVC for durability under the most demanding conditions. Jain Irrigation is the leader in drip irrigation fittings, known for reliability, service, and dedicated attention to customers’ needs.
Easy no-tool installation
Full range of color-coded sizes
Time and field-tested
Some configurations are available with shut-off and/or pressure check
Full flow — outside diameter of the PE tube “relaxes” against the fitting barb, sealing the connection while allowing unobstructed water flow
