    Just trying to figure out which fitting to use. How do you transition from 1" lateral poly pipe to funny pipe. All I can find is this fitting from Lasco sw1401-129. Is this what the pros use?

    I appreciate any help you can provide.

    What you have pictured is an insert fitting. I like to use Blazing Saddles because they don't incur as much flow restriction, and they are a snap to use. You simply attach the saddle, and then thread in your funny pipe fitting.

    I would use what we call an inline.

    which is a coupler with a 1/2 threaded X 3/8 barb attachment.

    when the pipe is not that deep we flip them over....

    good luck!

    1401-099 is the straght adapter. Before these fittings were developed, one could just use insert X FPT elbows and tees, and standard funny ells.
