Push for connectors for 1" poly

I have an old well pump repurposed as a river pump.
This needs to be disconnected in the autumn due to the river freezing during winter.
I need to cut the pipe and make a coupling but it can't be standard poly barb fittings since when I come to disconnect it, these won't turn. I was told there's something easier almost like a push fit connector or maybe a clamp - do you know of anything? It would be under pressure so needs to be strong.
Almost like a pitless adapter but not...

Would a camlock coupling work? I use them on my irrigation pump which is often hooked-up and uncoupled. I use the black plastic ones and after 10+ years I've still not had one break.
