What is the difference between a straight tee and a lateral tee?

A straight tee, also known as a tee fitting, has three outlets arranged in a “T” shape, while a lateral tee has two outlets arranged at a 90-degree angle to the main pipe. The straight tee is used when a 90-degree connection is not needed, whereas a lateral tee is used to create a 90-degree branch or lateral connection.
