"Can't You Just Adjust That Leaking Head"?

Boneheaded request, instead of replacing a really bad head with leaking seal.

"That brown area is because this 10 year old head has worn out seals. It will not spray far enough any more. Must replace the head".

"Can't you just adjust the head instead of replacing it"?


OK, I'll just give the seal-tightener screw a few turns.

Have you considered Orbit? Only 99Cts. in the patch and 1.59 if you want a brass colored nozzle.

Hmmm, loosen the head until it blows off and then "flood irrigation" will take care of the brown spot.

Sounds like a Hunter PGP, surprised there's not more to replace.

"Yards by Jack" say I don't need a back flow device, its over-kill.

"Yards by Jack" say ASV valves will work fine, even in a valve box.

"Yards by Jack" recommends the Home Depot orbit products, he says they are the same thing as what you get at the over priced distributors.

"Yards by Jack" says they can just put a riser on that head to get it to spray where it needs to spray.

Was I supposed to post this on the other thread?

As Mike would say..."Boys pack up the cones we're outta here!"
