Connecting Dripline to Sprinkler System (At the Box)


I have a 17mm dripline that I want to connect up to a sprinkler zone

I need some help in figuring out how I'm exactly going to accomplish this. Checking out the sprinkler box, it's a 1 inch poly line that's coming out of the box. I am looking to connect up the dripline right at the sprinkler box - I really don't need the poly line to extend anywhere else in my yard.

I'm mulling over a couple of options - do I just get a combination elbow and hook up the barb end to the 1" line and then run a riser etc. (on the outside of the box)? I checked around and 1" combo elbows aren't sold at China Depot. Maybe I need to special order one?

The second option I was mulling over was connecting right to the manifold, but I'm not sure what parts I'd really have to get there.

Here's a photo of the sprinkler box:

Youll need a pressure reducer somewhere on the line if all you want is a true drip line...

Definitely - I was already planning on that being part of the transition
