Clamps for Poly Pipe

Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of clamp is the cheapest and/or easiest to use for clamping fittings into 1" poly?
Does Sprinkler Warehouse carry these? If not, any suggestions on where to get them?

Thanks,
Craig

As I have stated many times try to use saddles as much as possible. Either blazing saddles or the other standard type. I cant think of the name. RVLI help me out. when I do have to use slip type T's etc I use the screw type of hose clamp. I can get them locally for about 60 cent a piece.

Check SW under fittings and you will see the saddles that I am talking about. SW has lots of good accessories. Also if you are new in doing irrigation funny pipe is also great because no clamps are required.
Thanks,

If you are using the Standard Tee (i use them) i would use Crimp clamps...you simply slide on the clamp..insert the fittings, and using a "Crimper tool" squeeze the raised bump on the clamp shut.....thats it (much eaiser than using worm gear clamps) I do believe Sprinkler warehosue carries the clamps and the tool!

Yes, a Dawn Saddle Tee by Dawn Industries. Also known as a "Quik Seal" Tee.
