To use couplings to repair spray tubes, you need to cut the spray tubes and fix the coupling into the cut spray tubes.
Flush the Spray Tubes
Spray tubes should be cleaned intermittently with water. How are spray tubes flushed? You pressurize the spray tubes with water, open the end plugs and let the water drain out from the spray tubes. This will remove the sand, silt and other unwanted particles in the rain hoses or spray tubes. It can also help in cleaning the emitters. Unblocked spray tubes can be reused.
