I read that thread, just how cheap @$$ homeowners think. He is willing to come on here and ask for free knowledge to keep from paying a pro. I am always willing to help a homeowner to better their home if they enjoy doing the work or want to learn more, but I hate helping someone do a scab job.

I know how to fix the broken pipe irrigation system, the problem is I don't want to becuase we don't care. However, for the sprinklear head problem, I thought I knew what to do, but I can't tell if the elbow needs a replacement, the head, or both. If you move a sprinkler head, do you know what breaks? People told me the elbow was in there crappily, there should be 4 swing elbows in a bridge formation, so the head can move freely without breaking.
He says he knows how to fix it, but just doesn't want to. This recipe is calling for 1 part cheap and 1 part lazy. Probably in the time that he's taking to post, he could have fixed it.

I'm a newb and all... Just sayin'.
