Connecting Rainbird 5004 to 1" poly- Best way?? and Which grade poly pipe?

I'm slowly getting everything figured out but I'm still not sure how to connect the Sprinkler (Rainbird 5004) to the 1" poly pipe. Swing Joint? Funny pipe? ?Part numbers? I'm using all poly pipe because that's what everyone uses around here. Is there a diagram of the various methods somewhere so I can see what parts I need?

Also today at Home Depot I saw 3 different grades of 1" poly pipe, utility (cheapest), white stripe "standard", and red stripe (most expensive). Which one is recommended. I need over 1500ft. so utility would save a lot but I don't want any future problems.

Never buy utitlity-grade pipe from big-box stores. You have to live with this stuff for decades, so buy the NSF poly.
