T-tape connectors etc. work well on both brands, but I prefer Aqua-
trax due to price.

I don't know if that means people like the aquatrax better and don't sell it off or that the T-tape is just more popular to start with.  The people that claim a preference that I've heard seem to be Aquatrax people  The worst I've used was a brand called "Plano"   At any rate I think I'm going to go with the pressure compensated type next time, I've noticed I don't get even distribution with the regular in any brand.

> Does anybody know for sure if fittings for T-tape are compatible with Aquatrax? I have an opportunity to pick up some Aquatrax from a local grower who is going out of business. Not sure what fittings he has available, but I have a lot of T-tape fittings, as that's what we use in the fields.
