I cut it out today and repaired it as best I could.
There was a leak where the three tees are.
The abomination is sitting at the office so I can look at it a little closer.
What I thought was a threaded tee was just a pipe that wasn't glued properly, which allowed it to spin when I turned it.
I found at least one green nipple in there, and I think there's another one nearby.
It looks like part of the system was converted to drip at some point, and landscapers have been there, so it's probably some hack work dealing with moving bed edging.

Good job. I was told to never use primer on class 200/sdr 21 whatever it's called. Only sch 40. I use clear primer unless it was speced.

In Texas we have a standard:

(i) PVC pipe primer solvent. All new irrigation systems that are installed using PVC pipe and fittings shall be primed with a colored primer prior to applying the PVC cement in accordance with the Uniform Plumbing Code (Section 316) or the International Plumbing Code (Section 605).
