I see that stuff almost every day. The landscaper comes in and makes a bunch of changes whilst ignoring anything irrigation related.
Landscaper makes out like a bandit and leaves the HO to deal with the irrigation issues (with what's left of their money).

this property also has a controller with 3 valves on it...one zone has 3 rotors, the next has one rotor and the third has 4 rotors on it--all the rotors water wide open areas, plants, grass, trees...whatever
-they are trying to understand why they spend so much on water-

we worked on the property 6 or 7 years ago and they stopped using us as we continually told them that what they were doing was wasting water and that they needed to add zones...etc..
fast foreward many years and the proeprty has many more coverage problems as tons of plants have been added to turf

For what it is it works.

One of the nozzles was clogged so I tried to put in a 8F and it wouldn't pop up. I dug it up and found this!
I have those on a few jobs, work just fine for me.

I am entering myself into the hall. I forgot to take a pic but here is how it went. A few years ago At a place I take care of they cemented a head into the cobblestone curbing but it still worked so I left well enough alone. But then last week someone broke the turret off the top and water was shooting straight up. I told the owners we need to bust up the curb to repair it. The asked if there was another way. I said I would try. The head was mounted on a cutoff riser directly on the lateral. The pipe continued under the driveway to feed the rest of the zone so I couldn't just cut it and move it. So I filled the can of the PGP with a tube of PL premium construction adheasive and installed a new head next to it. Not my proudest moment but it worked.

Not for long I would think, but would probably leak less than a PGP anyways.
