1/2" Tubing Popping off Converter

Shih Kao
last year


This is my irrigation set up.

A hose bibb that goes from a 1/2" pipe to a 3/14" output is connected to a Wye valve, 3/4" input and output, and that wye valve is connected to a regulator that takes the water pressure from 80 psi to 30 psi. The regulator is then connected to a 3/4" to 1/2" converter that connects to 1/2" tubing.

My Issue:

When I turn on the hose bibb to allow water to flow to my irrigation system, the 1/2 tubing pops out of the converter. Friction keeps it attached to the converter.

I am guessing that there is still too much water pressure in the system, but I am not sure. If that is my issue, what can I do about it?

Thank you and Regards,
