Flexible or not, it is still a tripping hazard. Further, it creates a hole in the ground with a sprinkler in the middle. You can spin it anyway you want, but it is still a tripping hazard and is a twisted or broken ankle away from a potential lawsuit.

How much maintenance does a concrete donut need? Further, if you drive over the sprinkler it still stands to be broken with your product. Your product only works if the sprinkler is not driven over. If anything, I would say it increases the chance of the sprinkler breaking if it gets driven over given there is less support around the body of the sprinkler. At least a properly installed donut will distribute most of the load to the surrounding soil.

How much faster? In what type of soil and soil moisture? Certainly you have measured this if you are making this claim. If any other "product" is sinking faster than the sprinkler, then it was not installed properly.

What about turf that is supposed to be mowed low? What about renovations and over seeding?

What does that mean? Again, you certainly must have some data to support this claim.

If you need to "custom" fit any product around a sprinkler because of walls or hardscape then the sprinkler wasn't installed properly to begin with.
