    Default Rapi-Tube and Rapi-Fix : Feedback requested!

    Hello guys,

    I know that some of you have already installed the system and I would like to receive any comments/questions/suggestions regarding both products.

    Feedback that we got so far is from our distributor CDL, but unfortunately we don't have any direct links with the final consumer: you guys.

    Please feel free to share anything on your mind to help us make your life easier!

    There is also a new product coming up that might require some "beta-testing"...

    Yes, the Rapi-Tube itselft is not a low cost product. This is the whole system installation + the quick repairs that'll make it cheaper than regular mainline.

    If you calculate your time, you will see the difference.

    Wondering if the 1 1/4 inch is on the market yet? And how far can you run this? I have some now that are over half mile.

    I set up two 400ft runs using 3/4" 160 psi black pipe and the rapitube straps. Looks real nice and holds firm. No wire, which is nice. Sorry I don't have the $$$$ to purchase the rapitube...yet. It costs quite a bit to convert over. I do like the time saving factors and the adjustments that can be made on your lines.

    Diameters available on the market are 3/4" and 1". The demand isn't high enough for other size to develop at the moment. You can run Rapi-Tube on 1000' with support at every 20 FT if you strech it by 1.5% at both ends.


    farmall h, thank you for the feedback.
