One piece funny pipe fitting for pvc.

http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/Da...e-p/sy-010.htm

anyone ever use these? currently i use saddles, cuz they are super easy. but, between the barbed fitting and the saddle, it is hella way more expensive than one of these,.......with very little more digging i would think this is pretty easy and fast, maybe faster? however, more pipe pushing and pulling cuz its like installing a T or similar. wonder how well the molded barbed fitting holds up, in strength etc

Thoughts?

Dawn seems to come up with decent products. I'd be using their insert fittings for swing pipe, but the big boys took notice and now Spears and Lasco and Dura make their own insert x swing-pipe tees and adapters.

I use them, very easy to use and install. Just make sure the swing pipe is pushed all the way on or you will have a blow out.

Looks like a weak point that will be prone to easy breakage to me.

The Dawn fitting looks strange to me, but I realize it's designed for piping laid in trenches, hence the angle of the outlet.

i would be using these on pulled pipe, not trenches. trying to figure if that is better than not digging as muich and taking longer with saddles on pvc. i want to get some of both to try, and see how it goes.

anyone every use the blazing saddle for pvc?

I like the insert tee's and ell's with a 1/2 funny pipe fitting hole in them.
