Trying to sort out fittings and swing joints

I'm in the planning stages of my system and trying to figure out my whole order for Sprinkler Wharehouse. I'm in a cold climate. I'm going to be using Rainbird 5004PC 4" sprinklers and my feed and zone lines are going to be all 1" Poly pipe. I'd like to hook up each sprinkler using a Hunter swing pipe, A. for convenience and B. so there's some give when I drive over with my lawn tractor. Can someone tell me what tee and end fittings I need for the 1" poly pipe where the sprinklers go and which Hunter swing joint I need and any other fittings?

Poor Quality

Hi, I had a system installed back in July of 2008. Worked great all that year. Starting this spring of 2009 I have had 2 service calls due to leaks. One above ground just past the check valve, tiny hole in the PCV pipe. The second call was another leak underground, right by one of the green boxes in the ground. They blamed this on the manufacturer also. I got a letter a few weeks back saying the manufacturer of the pipe (polystar) admits to bad resin. The installer says they have gone bankrupt and right now there is class action suit against them. Anyone else here about this??

No guarantee on the system?
