Got my order from sprinklerwarehouse, need help...

I received my order in excellent time, but the only thing I have a question on is the blazing saddles i thought i ordered. Basically, i thought that they would have came with 1/2" female threading to accept the risers that I bought. These saddles instead have a little nipple (1/4"??) that looks to attach funny pipe or something similar. Can I get some fittings from the plumbing store in order to fit the riser to the actual blazing saddle connection (these are cut-off risers by the way)?? Returning them is not much of an option, so I need to retrofit them to the risers somehow. Any help appreciated. Also, does anyone know if the blazing saddles should be able to tap into sched. 40 PVC? Thanks a million

They have blazing saddles specifically for PVC. You can get the original with a riser female thread. You got the "new" funny pipe version

The Blazing Saddle fitting for PVC will not pierce schedule 40 pipe. Will work on class 200 PVC though. If you are set on using schedule 40, you will need to get a glue on fittings or saddles.

How strong and reliable is class 200 pipe compared to sched. 40? I've had experience with sched. 40 in past small projects but would like to know the durability and reliability of class 200 before putting it down. Let me know, thanks.

Same question... I could have gone with schedule 40 for the same price as 200 and went with 200 because of the flexibility and adaptation to most systems. I still wonder how much I gave up in durability going with 200. Any ideas?

I prefer schedule 40 if it will be under constant pressure. class 200 for laterals. Schedule 40 is a thicker wall
