- Gray Pipe Adapter Spigot x Barb
Use Street (Spigot) x Barb/Inserts where you want to use flexible tubing. More professional look than white Schedule 40 PVC.
This street/spigot barb connector is great for converting plumbing fittings like gate valves or check valves to work with flexible tubing, or when you want to use flexible tubing straight out of a bulkhead with a slip connection. Street/ Spigot adapters have the same outside diameter as pipe, so they connect directly to fittings without the use of an additional piece of pipe.
The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper.
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating than a project delay.
No problem with these. By Ronald on 6/5/2020Ronald would recommend this product to a friendNothing wrong with these. They are spigot, meant to insert into fittings, not into pipe. The complaints are using them wrong. Since the spigot end is the same OD as its equivalent pipe, a coupling could be used to accomplish that if needed. But most people will use these with a fitting like an elbow.
Do NOT use these with schedule 40 colored pipe! By Chris on 3/28/2020Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLesson learned! These will not work with the colored BRS schedule 40 pipe! In other words, the 3/4" barb will not attach to 3/4" pipe like you imagine it should - same was true for the 1" barb, it does not attach to 1" BRS pipe. I bought these barbs in 3/4" and 1" to use to connect soft tubing to BRS blue schedule 40 hard plumbing. I'm using 3/4" for the return and manifold, and two 1" drain lines all hard plumbed. So the OD of schedule 80 and 40 pipe is the same, so slip socket fittings should work just fine. But this is not slip socket, it's slip spigot. Slip what? The spigot is the male end, and goes inside the pipe. Well, the ID of schedule 80 is narrower since the walls of the pipe are thicker compared to schedule 40. So, it will just not work. So that's my plumbing lesson and advice to pass along, that may or may not be correct. I honestly do not know, but that is how I am making sense of this. Surely I can't be the only person who has run across this problem. For now, these are really nice to look at, and I imagine they would work quite well, so I rated them as 5 stars. They also came with great BRS customer service - as one might expect. I might have to return them though.
It seems like, if you're in my shoes, using that fancy (nice looking, too) colored schedule 40 pipe, you'll need a slip socket to male thread pipe adapter (SKU: 202540) - and then a female thread barb fitting (SKU: 202666). I believe this was the conclusion I reached via chat with the helpful BRS staff. My only question is why this same fitting is not available as slip socket barb in schedule 80?
Well, hopefully my review helps someone who's new at this like I, eh, still am.
Works as advertised By Lukas75 on 3/17/2019Lukas75 would recommend this product to a friendThis works well when used in conjunction with a properly sized slip fitting. Please note that this will not fit the inside diameter of a pipe.
The 1" fitting is not 1"on the ID By Bentbird on 2/20/2019Bentbird wouldn't recommend this product to a friendTwice I tried to get these from BRS in 1" on the ID to fit 1" pipe and both times the ID is not 1.3" (actual size? on the ID to fit 1" pipe.
Too much slack By LDC3000 on 4/1/2017LDC3000 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was using this to connect to my Sicce return pump. The pump camp with two threaded barb fittings. The one that came with the pump fit snug into the tubing. This one here had too much space. I tried to clamp it down, but still to much space.
Strong Grip By Russ K on 7/2/2015Russ K would recommend this product to a friendI used the braided nylon tubing to connect to this barb. I heated some DI water in a glass container and used that to soften the tubing, and put some silicone lube on the barb. The tube slipped on the barb very easily. Once cool, I could rotate the tube on the barb with some force, but it was very difficult to remove (as I would want). When I had to refit one connection, I actually wound up cutting the old tube off by slitting it rather than trying to pull it off.
As described!!! By Marta on 11/4/2014Marta would recommend this product to a friendPerfect fit on my 3/4"silicine tubing
Will these fit on each end of your cepex ball valves? I'm using your black flexible 3/4" line
That would work in the Cepex ball valves! Have a great day!
Which fitting would I need for 5/8 ID flexible tubing?
Since 5/8" barb fittings are rather hard to find I usually use a 3/4" barb fitting and stretch the tubing to fit over it. Depending on your tubing this can be a little difficult and will be made much easier by heating the tubing up with hot water before hand.
I am sorry I didnt have a better solution for you. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.
I need a Barb fitting to connect a 1.5" flexible hose to a 1.5" pvc pipe.
The barb should have a smooth end to accept the 1.5" pipe.
Please let me know what item to order.
We do not have the exact fitting available. You can use the 1.5" spigot x barb and a 1.5" slip x slip coupler together to create the effect. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
If i were to get the 1 inch barb fitting would i be able to just glue it directly to a bulk head or would i need to run piping out and then get a coupler and will the 1 barb fitting work with 1 inch hosing or do i get 1 1/4
My overflow has 2, 1" drains (Eshopps Eclipse L). What diameter pipe or tubing is recommended for run to the sump?
I would use 1" pipe/tubing or larger to maintain the manufacturers flow rating on this overflow. Reducing the size of the drain lines will significantly reduce the amount of flow it is able to handle.
Hope this helps!
Can I use this with a regular white ball valve I bought at Lowes, or do I have to use this with a gray ball valve?
I'm saying white and gray because I'm not sure if it's still schedule 40 or 80.
The sch80 and sch40 are interchangeable, though you'll find that the sch80 components like the cepex ball valve are of a lot higher quality then the typical white sch40 bulkhead from the hardware store.
