I Think That Is What It Is. You Now The P.v.c. Pipe That Comes Out Of The Ground About A Foot Then Back In. I Was Weed Eating Around One Once And Just Barely Hit It W/ The Line And It Busted. Water Went Up In The Air About 40 Foot. I Also Clipped One W/ A Core Plug Er Once. Now I Stay Away From These Things.

No, But I have sucked a pop-up drain and a manifold box cover up and destroyed them. Came pretty close to tearing a sprinkler head off also.

We've taken out several backflow preventers, sprinkler heads, and even valve boxes. If the problem is repaired in a timely manner, there is usually not a problem. When you mow 5000 lawns a year, things happen.

We break them all the time. Over the course of time I end up replacing them with a thicker scheduled grade pvc pipe, one that doesn't break with a line timmer and then spray Round Up around it.
