    Default DSD saddles passed the test

    Washed up one bush tonight,backwashing a chlorine solution through the lines,usually every saddle is spraying solution out, and takes way too much water to wash,but not tonight,not one saddle leaking and washed the bush on the least amount of water ever. By next season all saddles will have been changed to DSD saddles

    Since I first tried the DSD saddles, I have used no others. I sold my inventory of others and now buy only the DSD. I started when they only offered them with an elbow fitting. Once they started offering them with a straight fitting they have all been with the straight ones. I find them much easier to attach the tubing.

    Dave,how do you hook on,straight from the side of the mainline? We use all hook connectors now with a loop going around to the saddle,amazing how fast you can check a bush for leaks now

    I put 50 of them in this year. My plan is to start replacing all of my manifolds with DSDs. I am going to give the straights shot this year.
