Can anyone tell me the name and type of combination 90 degree fitting shown in the pictures? Can I reuse them and if so do I need a special tool to remove them from the blue pex pipe collar they are attached to? I need to move two irrigation heads about 2' from where they currently sit and I assume this will involve getting replacement pex pipe. On the opposite end of the pex in the picture labeled "Backyard Swing Line1_1"are the same 90 degree fittings but in reverse order, meaning they are screwed into a "T' in the pvc with the pex end attaching to the swing arm with the same blue collar shown in the picture labeled "Tree Bubbler1"

I learn something new each day on this forum. I've never seen this type of pipe but Sprinkler Warehouse (Houston, TX) is about the best there is when it comes to irrigation equipment. It's Blu-Lock pipe and fittings. Similar to SharkBite.

Thanks for the info Worth Florida. Wondering if I can reuse the fittings and replace the pipe?

Just like any other press and fit. If they can be pulled apart with a tool they are reusable unless the O ring inside has been damaged.
