Lately I have seen a couple specifications require branch lines to have threaded connections and they specifically do not allow grooved, even when Schedule 40 pipe is used and even when most of the armover connections are welded pipe outlets.
These could just be old/outdated specs, but is there a reason/theory that suggests threaded connections are better than grooved? They can be cheaper but also can increase labor costs on large jobs. Just curious if there's a perspective I'm not considering here, thanks in advance.
