DIY Sprinkler Irrigation - Rotor and Spray Body Installation


How To Connect An Irrigation Rotor Or Spray Body To The End Of A Lateral Line

Installing an Irrigation Rotor or Spray body to the end of a lateral distribution line is usually done using an elbow fitting with an FPT output.   Similar to connections at the mid-way point in a lateral line you have options for connecting to the Rotor or Spray Body from your elbow fittings.  Here we illustrate a few of the common methods for installations using both conventional Insert Fittings and Blu-Lock.  If using PVC the same concepts will apply using either 1/2" or 3/4" Slip by FPT fittings.
