Did this video help you?

davess357: I've used these type of connectors several times. They make the repair invaluably easier.

Jordan Dekker: Funny pipe - A No No. PVC pipe - A worse No No

David Q: Good video. Covered in great detail. You gave me a great idea about hot to run a separate line to the sprinkler head. Thank you!

Miles Brown: Thank you! I appreciate your help!

Matt Ripley: good video except you didn't flush the lines before installing the sprinkler head. with all that dirt around the break you could end up with some annoying and costly clogs to your clients system

iScaper1: My video on how to repair pvc class 200 sprinkler pipe shows how to install a tee. In your case the tee would be a 3/4" Tee SXSXS instead of the tee shown in the video. If you're tapping into a line for a garden, you would want to tap into a supply line (this way you would have constant pressure to the garden, tapping into a zone line would only give you water when the zone is on). To find a supply line, you could dig next to a valve box and find the line feeding the valves in the manifold.

iScaper1: I'm glad the video helped. Thanks for commenting.

equate5: I thought it might be easy. Thanks

oregonberry: As a former landscaper (I did plant care, not irrigation), I have to chuckle that you left the weedy grass in the turf. :) Thanks for the video. I've never seen a quick fix, but that would be the perfect solution for my broken pipe.

Janky Jay III: Thanks! Was looking for how to properly apply the primer and cement along with dry time. Very informative!

iScaper1: If you can it's good to wait 24 hours for the glue to set, but I've never had trouble pressuring up sooner using the Red Hot Blue Glue.

joey p: theres alot of stress on both funny fittings because the funny pipe is too short. shoulda put your tee at the other end and extended the funny pipe

Mark Reese: I'm pretty sure you forgot to put primer on the female end of the slip fix

iScaper1: Replacing an elbow in circuit lines is a little different than this repair. Once you cut the bad elbow out you can't simply glue a new one in because the distances don't match up. You need to cut back far enough on each pipe that you can glue in a coupling, a short piece of pipe on each, and then the elbow. Dig back enough on the lines that you can get a little flex in the PVC pipe, glue the couplings in first, and last match up and glue in the elbow.

JPKHOSA: where i can buy quick fix

joey p: you should always try to turn the tee to the side so there is some give. otherwise the funny pipe fitting will break if something runs it over

A Singh: Another excellent video, cheers.

iScaper1: @1teamarie Thanks.

Jlbloom40: Yeah but your a professional right a little bit goes a long way

iScaper1: I disagree. You would need 4 elbow to make your repair work, not to mention the fact that you then make the water change directions four times using the elbows. The last quick fix I bought was around $4 not $8. The time saved using a quick fix more than pays for the coupling.

iScaper1: Thanks Matt, your feedback is appreciated.

John Michaels: very good job.. You answered a lot of questions for me..

Beau Ellenbecker: Thanks! I hit a pipe while doing some landscaping. This will help a lot.

iScaper1: @JohnAgee102688 Pipe cutters are Wheeler 18Z ratcheting cutters. Very nice cutters for PVC pipe. They are more expensive than normal cutters, but well worth it. Blades can be replaced. They work great on Schedule 40 pipe.

equate5: How do you replace and elbow? Thanks

Christofer Harms: He really should have held each solvent cemented joint together for 30 seconds to avoid push-out

pbnaj: Thnx Buddy

iScaper1: I was hired to repair the broken sprinkler line, not to cure the weeds in the grass problem.

Balazs Staudinger: you do not have to use a 8 dollars slip fix on that case , use an elbow and a "street " elbow and a short piece of pipe. cheaper and faster, even better....

iScaper1: Thanks.

dubb webb: haha, if i used a slipfix for every broken pipe ive had to repair....my boss would not be a happy person to say the least..

iScaper1: You can buy a quick fix repair coupling at Home Depot or any sprinkler supply store.

akko410: Looks simple and clear! great tutorial. I will follow your tutorial coming weekend. Thanks again.

iScaper1: Thanks.

ryan fulgueras: see the one we use i forget what it is but is says to wait 24 hours or its best to wait then

blueticecho: You must live close to the UPRR right a way..........

Terressee: Thanks for taking the time to make this video...very helpful :)

Richelle Mott: Thanks for the detailed info for the rookie like me that can fix my rookie mistake. Much apreciated great job!

Howard Chambers: Thank you very much. I think I can now do it....

iScaper1: Depends on the glue you used but you should be ok. Leave the hole open and pressure up the line, if the glue joint is going to fail it usually will do it withing 10 seconds.

iScaper1: Thanks for the comment.

iScaper1: Thanks for watching.

iScaper1: Definitely buy a quick fix coupling. You would have to expose 10' of pipe to get enough flex to use 2 couplings and make a good glue joint. It's much easier and faster to use the quick fix. Be sure to do some measuring before you make your cuts.

JohnAgee102688: you coud have used 2 coupings and a 45 with that tee and some pipe and saved a slip fix how do those pipe cutters work? ive never seen them around my area. we use just the standard little ones that you have to replace the blades on all the time. but does that work better with the thicker pipe?

ryan fulgueras: I do irrigation and when you replace them instead of an hour your supposed to let it dry for 24hrs

Fred B: Nice info. Do you have a video on how to install a tee in existing system? Including how to locate the feed lines. I need to tap into system for additional water feed for a new garden. Thanks in advance.

iScaper1: Sometimes it's not feasible to wait 24 hours. I use Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue which is ideal for fast pressurization and has a very fast set time.

Matt Harrold: Thanks, all the answers I needed, 10 dollars worth of parts and a shovel and I was done.

iScaper1: You can feel if a fitting is going to push off the pipe when gluing the fitting. It will begin pushing off the pipe immediately. If this happens then I will hold the fitting securely for around 10 seconds. 30 seconds on this type of glue which is Red Hot Blue Glue is a waste of time because this is a fast set glue designed for wet applications. Slower set glues like a gray glue would require more hold time.

iScaper1: Thanks.
