    I've been using those now for a little while, and they do make life a little more easier in the trenches.

    Only difference between RainBird and Lesco blue twister, on the RainBird, need to get that first ridge going then can twist in, on the blue, you just start turning it to get it in.

    There is another product out there that got my attention called blue-lock. I guess you use there own proprietary funny pipe and fitting. All you have to do is stick there pipe into their straight or 90 1/2 fittingand twist a knob to lock in place. Still trying to find a local distrubutor around my neck of the woods. Do a google search at bluelock.com for more info.

    My local plumbing supply started carrying some irrigation supplies for us, and they have the blu-lock on the shelf. I'm going to leave it there. I asked for pricing and it is around 50% higher on the tube and they are proud of the fittings too. It might just be my source, but at those prices, it would have to install itself.
