Has anyone ever used Rain Bird (or similar) drip irrigation tubing with quick connect fittings (tees, elbows, valves, etc.), such as Sharkbite or John Guest fittings? If so, what was your experience (bad, good, otherwise)?
Those fittings are obviously much more expensive compared to the barbed fittings that Rain Bird makes, but we reconfigure some portions of our garden a lot. I've done the numbers, and if those quick fittings work technically, then some of them may be economical (and just much easier to use) for use in some of our areas. But I'd like to know if anyone has experience with them, and whether they would actually work.
BTW, I'm fully aware of the potential UV concerns. We'd take care of those through how we deploy them.
