I was doing some weeding in my garden recently and I accidently put a fork through a piece of my drip irrigation system. I wasn’t sure how I should fix it and found that taping it up didn’t work. I found the following videos that show how to remove the damaged section of pipe and then insert a barbed coupling piece to re-join the two pieces of pipe.
A video I found at the IrrigationRepair.com website shows what material you will need as well as how to repair a leak in your drip irrigation hose.

Today I put that information to good use and successfully repaired my irrigation system!
