The weight of pedestrian traffic and lawn equipment can cause damage to underground piping. Newly redesigned Hunter Spiral Barb Elbows (HSBE) add durability to pipe connection points to prevent leaks and breakage.

“Our new HSBE fittings are bigger and beefier for increased strength,” said Steve Hoveln, Product Manager at Hunter Industries. “They also sport a new barb design that makes installation so easy, you don’t even need tools!”

Bigger Barbs, Better Design

HSBE fittings feature an innovative spiral-to-sealing barb design that makes them stronger and easier to install in any setting. A unique spiral barb expands into a single, sealing barb that creates a leak-free connection, even at high operating pressures.

  • Robust design for long-lasting reliability
  • Acetal material produces sharp barbs that grip the tubing better
  • Designed to withstand pressures up to 5.5 bar (550 kPa) without leaks or breaks
  • Compatible with Hunter FlexSG Tubing and other brands for a customised swing joint — no tools required

HSBE fittings are especially effective when used with Hunter FlexSG Tubing to install around hardscaping, utility boxes, or water meters.
