Jose Temple: I’m Josh Temple and this is Disaster House. Most sprinklers when they break, break in one place and that’s the joint which is right below the sprinkler.
So we’re going to dig down, expose the water supply pipe and attach the new hardware. We go all the replacement parts we need for about 30 bucks.
Pay attention because this is going to go fast. It’s not real hard especially with these modern parts, you don’t need any Teflon tape, you don’t need any pipe dough or any glue. These things just fit right in so I’m just fitting the reducer into the elbow right now. I’m going to fit my riser into my reducer.
Next, detach the elbow to the end of the water pipe. If it doesn’t slide on easily, use a torch to soften it. But be careful when you heat this pipe, just barely heat it. That’s all you’re not looking to get it hot you’re just going to heat it a little bit.
After tightening the clamp, turn the water on for a few seconds to clear any mud and debris out of the line. Now you’re ready to screw on the new sprinkler head.
Hand tight only, don’t use any wrenches on this stuff. And once you get into a nice tight fit, before you bury this again, run those sprinklers one more time because you’re going to want to know that this performs well and that you’re not going to get any leaks in your new joint.
There you go. Sprinkler’s fixed, only took about 10 minutes.
