No, I do not recommend this product.
After hours upon hours of trying to figure out how to use the eco-lock system for my project, which parts to buy and where, I finally gave up and decided to go with traditional PVC. Whatever time it will take me to glue pipe together I already spent 10 fold with the eco-lock idea.
- Information on what fitting is for what and how they fit together for simple applications like adding a drip line is not easily available. The description for all of them is pretty much the same: advertisement for the product (revolutionary, green, etc.) but no usable info.
- Orbit’s "best in the industry" support is exceptionally poor. After 1.5 hours of listening to an upbeat female voice describing products you have no interest in you get someone who has no clue about anything sprinkler-related. The second time I tried to call support I gave up after another 1+ hour.
- I'm in Texas and sales associates at neither Home Depot nor Lowe's here know anything about eco-lock. Lowes does not seem to carry it at all, contrary to what that Orbit’s support person was telling me, and Home Depot only carries it online. So when you order you need to know exactly what you need, which goes back to the absence of helpful information on the product.
Overall, I was really happy when I found this product initially and put a lot of effort into trying to make it work for me, but ended up abandoning this idea because the lack of information/availability/support made any practical implementation too challenging to pursue.

Review 2 for 1 in. x 100 ft. Eco-Lock Sprinkler Pipe
I installed this in a 6 zone system as a newbie. Soil was clay and very rocky. Used vibratory plow to pull 700 feet of this and another 100 feet of 3/4". This pipe kept a little coiled, even after leaving stretched out in basement a couple of nights, but that is the price paid for a durable product. I had only one tear at a site where the pipe twisted after being pulled under. ( I did all this by myself) Pipe with couplings are easy to assemble, but take a little hand and arm strength to push together, especially the 1" parts. Rocking back and forth worked best. Mark the pipe at 1" back to make sure the connector gets on all the way. Get a few extra couplings for repairs of kinks. One of the best things is that the attachments can be easily rotated to any position after connected. Again, I am new to this, and so a professional may have comments in regards to the cheaper poly pipe typically used.

Review 3 for 1 in. x 100 ft. Eco-Lock Sprinkler Pipe
Fittings were difficult to put onto pipe and had two leaks, pipe bends too easy which causes problems, but the worst problem was that home depot did not carry enough supplies to install complete sprinkler system in lawn.

Review 5 for 1 in. x 100 ft. Eco-Lock Sprinkler Pipe
Easiest assembly with shark bite type connections--Use the available PVC remover to unseat--cut or adapt remover as needed--1/2" connections just pull out--lay out pipe in yard to relax coil-water tight seal is maintained with any rotation of joint--Can cut pipe with garden pruner--1/2" elbow shark bite to MPT work best for pop up head location-- Blu lock adapters work fine going to MPT to work down to hose thread if you can't get eco-lock adapters--Because of potential flexibility I trenched only to 6-8 inches for Oregon climate...Trenching shovel from HD made 4" trench easy work...
Pros: Easy to Install, Durable, works with blu-lock parts
