I had my plumber re-rout my irrigation line. He needed to cut off an artery that was T ‘d off of my main line. He did not have a slip ring, nor a 1″ cap so he put a 1 -3/4″ reducer on the cut off T and then capped that. Rather than sticking out a normal 1″ or so with a cap, it is sticking out maybe 3-4″. Wouldn’t it be better to cut out the T and just place a slip ring over that section of main line. He will be up the end of the week so I can ask him to do it. It is all explosed and easy to get to. Is it worth it? I don’ know if water running into to little T appendage and back constantly will cause any problem. Please advise!!!!
