How To Repair Lawn Irrigation Pipe
Cut Out Damaged Section
I use 2 stainless steel crimp type clamps on all my lawn irrigation connections. I’ve learned the hard way to put these connectors on first so you don’t forget later when it’s too late.
Using a small propane torch I heat up the irrigation pipe and then slip in a poly pipe, barbed coupler connector. Avoid touching the heated end as melted poly will stick to and burn your hand – wear gloves or use a rag.
Install A Coupling
Using end cutting pliers I crimp both clamps tight at the end of the pipe and on the pvc fitting.
This fitting is ready to receive a new section of pipe. I now have to do this to the other side as well.
Measure the distance between the two sections of pipe and cut a replacement piece to fit in.
