How to Properly Install Sprinkler Heads

Rated 4.8 Across 500+ Reviews



Guys, I hope you're doing well. Let's talk about the basics of sprinklers and the proper way a sprinkler head should be installed to avoid it breaking when you step on it when you want it over with a lawn mower or something else, let me flip this camera around. So first of all, this is called flex pipe or funny pipe. This is flexible. You're also going to have two connections here. This is called street elbow, you have a funny L and Model X. So basically, this really helps get your setting you can, you can rotate it either direction. And then if this were to get stepped on, or this is right at the corner of a driveway, if this gets run over by a car, there's so much room to flex, if this were connected straight to PVC pipe, there's a really good chance of that that pipe would just crack and break. So this is really good to prevent breaks and damage. Because if you have a broken head, make sure you fix it this way. Just add on a fitting that adapts from PVC over to this funny pipe and then you won't have to deal with this issue. Again, if you just continue to replace the nipple, you're going to continue to get damaged and it's just going to happen over and over again. Once installed monitor your lawn and keep and eye out for any dead grass next to your sprinklers. So if you have any questions, let us know. Otherwise, have a good day.
