These are the fittings that work with our soaker hoses. They are solid lead free brass and are plated with both nickel and chrome to provide a durable, long-lasting and very attractive finish. They fit all standard garden hose connections and all also drinking water safe. Most types of hose clamps can be used to secure the fittings to our soaker hose and are available at all hardware stores. We like to use the Pex crimp rings or you can always use more common worm-drive clamps that are re-usable.
