    Hi Jim Rebel, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is the sprinkler like the one shown? Is it rising from the ground?

Remove the sprinker head and turn on the zone - water should be gushing out of the headless connection. If water there then there is some sort of blockage in the head assembly. If no water then the problem lies with the water distribution - are other heads in same zone working ? If not the entire zone is at fault - maybe the solenoid is not functioning. If the other heads are working then the water is not reaching the non working head - pipe broken in ground?

Sprinkler will not pop up


Sounds like "Sure pop" was misleading. Try unscrewing the top or entire sprinkler then the top remove the spray nozzle to access the spring. Stretch it out longer and re-assemble the sprinkler screw it back in place with the spray notches on nozzle facing are you want covered. This should solve the problem if not, replace the pop-up.

How do I adjust sprinkler head properly


Check to see if the small slotted screw is flush with the top of the spray nozzle. If so, it has been manually lowered. Turn the screw counter clockwise until it stops, be sure to hold the nozzle to keep it from turning. If no, unscrew the nozzle and remove debris from around filter. Tell the gardener to just mow the grass and not to touch the sprinkler system he is usually why it was turned down 9 times out of 10. If he says "No touch, No touch. He is lying fire him.

Sprinkler head does not spray water


Make sure when you pull the head to ck the screen you turn the system on and blow out the line, then run a hose through the head to make sure it isn't plugged up anyway. Depending on the head and the cost of a new one will dictate cleaning or replacement.

Hunter sprinkler head adjusting...


I googled Hunter sprinkler heads and where to purchase them. In my area (the East bay, Tri-Valley) in Nothern California.

I went to Ewing Irrigation in Dublin, CA and found the Hunter sprinkler heads there. The man working the counter got two for me and he demonstrated how to change the head by unscrewing it from the base at or just below ground level by removing the old one and screwing in the new head. He also showed me how to adjust them with the spray pattern. You will need the little tool that comes with the sprayer head.

Making sure the center arrow is completely to the left and rotate the head to the right then back to left. They are set to a 180% spray pattern from the manufacturer. If you want a bigger pattern you turn the adjuster toward the ( + ) side and if you want less pattern you turn the adjuster to the ( - ) side. He showed me how to install the red sprayer inserts by simply pushing them in the cavity making sure the little u shaped indentation is pointing up to allow for the set screw to go through to adjust the spary.The spray varies in distance and amount of water being emitted from the head depending upon the insert used.

I was able to replace the Hunter head, adjust the spray and changed out the insert a few times until I found the one I liked. I used needle nose pliers to remove the initial spray insert that the man @ Ewing installed until I found the one that worked best.

I found using needle nose pliers makes it very easy to grasp the little inserts for replacing.
