    I am having troubles with slip joints for polyethelyne leaking. I tried tightening the clamps, and still spray is occurring.

    Even tried double clamping to no success.

    Any tips or ideas?

    make sure you are clamping on the barbed part of the fitting

    ARe you using a torch to assist in inserting. If so - you might of over heated and caused it to melt which lead to leaks when you clamp it
