My dear friends. I was wondering if you can assist me. I am setting up a micro irrigation system for my gardens and am having trouble with the 13mm distribution pipes. I have connected a 100kpa pressure reducer to the normal tap, then the 13mm pipe to the pressure reducer unit, and run the pipe to the garden. I then use risers and micro sprinklers around the garden. The problem I have is this. I am running the 13mm pipe where ever I need it, using elbows, T pieces, and joiners to complete the 13mm pipe. I push the elbows, T pieces, and joiners into the 13mm pipes at the required points to go around the garden. Then connected the 4mm pipes to the 13mm pipes and then to the drippers and micro sprinklers around the garden.
When I turn the tap on, the sprinklers work great, but for one problem. Where I have used the joiners, T pieces, and elbows, the water is leaking out at these joins. I have used the 13mm locking clamps and mounted them as per the instructions on the rear of the packet.
Is there anything I can use, and how can I use it, to seal up these joins to stop the water from leaking out.
