    Ths street in front of our home is going to be redone. This means that the portions of our sprinkler system running along the curb will be torn up. In all, four zones will be affected. We would like to keep the rest of the system going, including the interior heads within the four zones that will be affected by the street construction. Please advise us on how to go about temporarily hooking up the system. Thanks

    geez, 4 zones affected? I always run 1 zone along the street, pipe parallel to the street. Sounds like your zones are perpendicular to the street.

    The last head going towards the street (that won't be affected) is where you will want to cap it, or better yet change the fitting at the last head to a threaded elbow (right now it should have a threaded T or a saddle T). If you cap it near the street then you'll have dead pipe that won't get blown out in the winter.
