Default What is this

Had a request to check out a pipe coming out of commercial building and find out its use. We don't do much commercial work so I thought someone on here could help me figure out what it is

I'm not in a snarky mood.

Post an intro and all will be good.

Nah, I think "repair" was more than sufficient as an intro! Don't worry about these crochety old guys. They don't need to know anything like what state or province you're in, whether "repair" actually means plumbing or not, if it is plumbing, is it resi or commercial, are ya licensed, how many years plumbing experience do you have? Don't worry about those pesky details that would get you real answers. By the way, that picture is of a goezinta line, although I've usually seen them in brass, not galvanized.

Remove piece in end. Replace with 1/2" plug. Easy as can be.

Goezinta supply lines are usually brass up north because of the road salt getting on them during the winter. Down south they're usually galvy to save on cost.

Where was this picture taken?

I am down south so no need for brass goezintas here. Lol but thanks for all the colorful replies. I believe Pacificpipes is correct irrigation port. It's funny because there isn't any problems with it but the store manager said it used to have a chain attached to it and now it doesn't. So I got a call from corporate up north asking me to figure out if it needs a new chain. Probably used to be attached to a cap.
