    How concerned should I be about kinks put in Techline tubing while muscling couplers on,or when wrapping or directing the tubing into place.I massage them out,but do I need to worry about future problems?

    I got some Netafim and the way it came from factory it had 3 kinks in it - at same place on each "circle" when coiled. I used this Netfim and unkinked it. The kinks are remembered - I have never successfully been able to remove them. Also, by installing on a small radius curve, I kinked the line, and these kinks keep coming back. So, yes, I think the kinking matters.
