Sometimes a pop up head needs to be replaced because the ground surrounding it has gotten higher since it was installed. In lawns, thatched grass falls in between the blades and decays adding organic material to the ground and slowly raising ground level. Some of our most common repairs involve switching out 2 and 4 inch pop up heads with 6 or 12 inch varieties.
Another common repair that we make is to switch out the standard spray head with a fine misting head or rotary head so that the correct coverage is obtained. When systems were first being installed several years ago a single head was used for every single pop up location. This simply isn't very efficient and doesn't offer the coverage that a lawn needs. By mixing and matching different sprinkler heads it is possible to achieve optimal coverage without having to add additional underground lines or heads to an existing system.
