Funny Pipe

Can Funny Pipe be used with the Hunter Institutional spray sprinkler
and the I-20 rotor sprinklers? Does Hunter make a product like Funny
Pipe? Lastly, what is the difference between Funny Pipe and Super
Funny Pipe (listed in Toro catalog 2001 page44)?

Yes you can use funny pipe to connect Hunter or any brand or type of spray head or Rotor to the pipefittings of the sprinkler system piping.

Hunter makes a funny pipe, which is pre-made with swivel elbows on each end and either 6" or 12" of flexible tubing between them. They are called Hunter Swing Joints. They are hands down the way to install your sprinkler system heads! Trust me on this one.

A Hunter Swing Joint easily adjusts sprinklers to proper height and position, saving both time and money.
If you've experienced trouble installing sprinklers to correct finish grade because you can't find the right riser length...if your pipes are buried in shallow trenches and you want to retrofit to taller pop-up sprinklers...if you're having difficulty raising sprinklers buried under inches of built-up thatch...if you want to be sure when a sprinkler has heavy equipment rolling over the top it can easily be properly readjusted...then here's the perfect solution. The Hunter Swing Joint is the simple way to adjust a hard-to-place sprinkler to its proper height and position in mere seconds. This versatile creation is available in two different versions - for new installations or for retrofits - and, with a simple twist of the wrist, either can install to virtually any position, making it the ideal option to add to sprays and rotors at any time. This is an innovative product you won't want to pass up!

Here is the link to the Hunter Swing Joints found on our website:

My opinion

Funny Pipe is garbage. This "short cut" is a joke. Everyone use it but it leaks, cloggs up with dirty water and uses thing plastic fittings. Just my opinion.

It may be a climatic thing because it works pretty good in Houston.

We also have pretty low water pressures here generally 50 to 65 PSI.
