I could easily see that being a good fit, better then here.

I did done work at home today and had pipe pulled in the same day and driven over, and was still able to work with it so I am not as concerned.......but we will see.

Watch you don't go pulling S-curves on jobs with those o-ring fittings. Poly pipe can install with considerable stretch.

Supposedly the pipe will fail before the fitting will. The fittng is good to 400psi. They are similar to a shark bite and have a ring that bites into the pipe.

I used to love the old brass saddle tees, but over the course of years, learned they could create a point of poly-pipe failure, with the pipe tearing apart at the hole. I would have little confidence that a similar failure was impossible with the new fittings.

rain of course was not in the picture when i pulled the pipe, hence i was not worried about doing two at once with one machine rental. .it is what it is though.

in the end, i think i like trenching much much better. easy as pie to install and fit together. plus, nothing is under tension for possible failures. no digging down to connect, no nothing, just trench, dig a small amount to set the neads, and test.backfill.done
