Explanation:
A "manguito" is a sleeve or coupling, but "pipe couplings" in Spanish would be "manguitos para tubos". Conversely, "coupled pipes" in Spanish would be "tubos manguitos" (with "manguito" in the plural). Either way, both words should be either singular or plural. Absent any further context, I'd probably go with "coupled pipes", possibly with a translator's note. -- Hope this helps a little, HC
