How To Replace A Sprinkler
I think at some point in time, everyone is going to learn how to fix the sprinkler, but I am also going to show you how you can improve your sprinkler.
This old metal sprinkler’s head is set below the soil level overtime. So the water cannot get out. It is a common problem and there’s an easy fix by replacing it with the pop-up sprinkler. Any lawn that I at least not unleash gets pour into the pop up, and the reason is because if I take this head, and I set it out at the right level which pretty much as flesh as the soil level. This extension will pop-up 4inches near my grass, and will put out water the way it supposed to.
So, you’re looking for a 4inch pop-up the way you determine the size it’s from the stem there that rises not the body. Now, you could simply use this to threaded connector and screw the new pop-up pin. That will fix it but since it’s rigid there is a good chance that it will break later below the surface if I hit it with my lawn mower or cortile. Then I have a whole another problem to deal with.
Now I’m going to show you my favorite solution, and that is by using a swing assembly. And this is typically what I recommend people do. I will tell you why, this is called a strydll and it’s made up of soft notable plastic. It does not need a Teflon. You can screw that directly into your PVC or your metal fitting there. Okay, you can connect these 3Ls together then come up with something like I have here. If you connect four of these it gives you flexibility to dance in different directions, it ‘s flexible I can move it, and wrap to connect it no Teflon needed again, and I have at least half of the three edge or slightly more. Let’s screw it together.
You want a little bit of flexibility because again this is a swing assembly. This head will swing when I am done. Now, I can flex these elbows to bed them down, and put my head just like that. And now, this head, and then in different directions, it is flexible, it is not going to break, and I don’t have to replaced this head again. Look at that, set at the right height that’s beautiful. I want to ask you that fill around this head, and you have to remember it. All that soil that came out from this spot has to go back in this spot, otherwise, you will get some saddled layer and you will have a low spot there.
So the last thing I have left to do, is just to take off this nozzle. I can drop this in the place to help the filter get out. Flash this line; make sure there are no contaminants in the air because if you have any dirt, debris in the air it can sludge into your filter. It’s going to keep this spray from working, and then it will work for nothing. Now, to put on my new nozzle and filter, and I am back in business.
