Until the head stops working or there is a broken T or elbow under the head. No practical means for repair or replacement.

Indeed. I think there were two, maybe three busted, concrete-entombed heads at this house.

Actually that isn't to bad....guessing maybe six inches of digging and you can do what needs to be done, the problem is though that looks like an off brand head so do you have it or do you have to run to your local box store......I deal with this crap all the time(water waster too).....just means what should of been a 25 buck repair ends up a 75 buck repair. impractical and stupid.....yes.....dumb contractor should be hung from his pelota's until they drop and fall off.
