    I need to raise a bunch of 3/4" sprinkler heads 1-2" and have only found 1/2" cut-off riser extensions. Do they even make these? What are my other options for doing this?

    Sure, "they" make them. I forget the brand (maybe Lesco?) but we have bright green ones.

    Also, you could use funny pipe and two 3/4" x fp elbows.

    I looked at the Lesco site and didn't see them. I've looked in a lot of places so if you can recall someone that makes these, I'd appreciate it. Will make the job go much faster.

    Home Depot has them, 3/4 top and bottom.

    I was just at HD looking for them and didn't see them. I saw the 1/2" but not the 3/4". This is the extension not the male/male riser. The extension has one end that is male (adjustable cutoff) and one end that is female.

    OK I see what you mean, No I only saw the 1/2 inch at Home Depot too. You may have to dig down and replace the old 3/4 extension with a new one and then cut it off.

    Wow, that's it. Thanks for finding that. Not many stores have them.

    Unless the heads are already on poly risers, a poly riser extender is a severe drop in connection strength. You'd do better with sch 40 PVC riser extenders. Folks that use swing joints can simply employ a shovel as a lever to raise the heads.

    Do they make those in 3/4" with a male/female end and about 1-2" in length?
