    I have a commercial client that has a irrigation system in the planters out in front of their establishment. There are seven heads that need to be lowered because the planters height is being lowered. How difficult is it to lower these heads. They have to be lowered 12''.

    Where is the zone line in relation to the heads? Is it well below where the heads need to be?

    I don't do irrigation work, but I know enough that I could do that job if the zone line was low enough. If it needed to be lowered, I'd be calling our sub........

    Since noone has given an easy answer. I will. Try and find out if the risers are screwed on. If so get a shorter riser, use flex or funny pipe. It is easy as that. Hope it helps.
