    I am adding a head to a lateral line. I am putting a T in the line but there is not a turn in the pipe or a head within 20 ft. The head will be about 15 ft. from the connection. What is the best way to connect the T in this situation? I know about the "4 90's" hook up(PurpHaze!!) but I would just like to get an opinion on how most people go about doing this....Thanks.

    I just read the thread a few pages back about the guy teeing into the 1 1/2 line. Most of you said 4 90's and a tee....Think I will go with that also...

    For adding just one head to a lateral, you could glue on a "snap tee"

    Sure it is. Drill a hole in it and run swing pipe.
