How add a sprinkler to an existing irrigation pipe?

Is there a way to add a small sprinkler to an existing irrigation pipe ? The hole in the pipe (brown) appears to have something installed tightly behind it.

 

What should I use to add a micro sprinkler using the existing holes ?

How do I close an irrigation hole ?

I'm not sure how to close a hole in an irrigation pipe. It's in a section of the garden where no plants are grown. I have some hole plugs which I bought but they don't appear to fit as there's something blocking the holes. Is there any way to plug up the hole ?

 

Is this some sort of pre-installed irrigation tube ?

Re: How add a sprinkler to an existing irrigation pipe?

Hello @vng

 

My apologies for the late reply. The hard item you are feeling in the hose is a Holman 13mm Beige Barbed Poly Joiner or a version of it. It seems that when the irrigation hose was joined together, it was not cut far enough. To cover the hole in the hose, I suggest using Rust-Oleum 25.4mm x 3.04m Clear LeakSeal Self-Fusing Silicone Tape for long-term repair of the leak.  Using any other type will not provide a long-term solution. 

 

If you are connecting 4mm sized parts, you will need to use the Pope 4mm Sealing Plug And Punch Spanner. The Punch Spanner will provide you with a clean entry point in the hose for the Pope 360° Micro Eze Jet Spray. If you notice that the entry point is excessively leaking, I recommend changing the barbed adapter on the Micro Eze Jet Spray to a Pope 4mm Threaded / Barbed Adaptor. Please remember to gently screw the adapter into the hole of the hose. Do not force push it into the hole as this will not give you a good positive seal.

 

If you need more advice or information, please let us know.

 

Eric
