Would be a manual set up - either off the sprinkler mainline/manifold, or off the hose bibb, although our bibbs are usually off 1/2" line.
From a few I've seen online - brass impacts, mounted under the soffits at either end. Or somehow run pipes into attic and pop out thru the top, but I'd be worried about not making a tight water seal on the roof.
I put a hose bibb on my roof for that reason. Nothing hooked up to it constantly, I just have an impact and hose dedicated for that purpose when I need it.
