Hunter sprinkler head adjusting...

First off, I wish these heads were more intuitive in adjusting the spray. One adjustment for left, One for right and made clear where center is from adjustment point.

Ok, when I was trying to adjust the spray, it started clicking now it won't do anything. I'm trying to set the spray pattern. Is the head now broken or can I fix it....help!

    I changed all my sprinkler heads, (total new heads) last fall. I am really having a hard time getting them to spray where I wanted. I don't want to have to redig the body assembly unless I have to. They pissed me off so much last fall I hand watered and now I am getting all worked up on them again and I haven't started. I have no problem changing the nozzels. It's ...do I need to rotate the head all the way to the left then all the way to the right and then back to the left? I know how to use the adjuster it's just getting them set up to a point I can adjust them. I am a woman of 44 and independant. I just don't know how much more work I have to go to. And if I have to dig them up..I will do it but it's a pain I have 32 total front and back.

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.

Hunter heads have a fixed right stop. Simply rotate the sprinkler all the way to the right until it clicks, and then rotate to the left until it clicks again. By using the Hunter Adjustment Key (tool), simply turn to the "+" to adjust it to a larger radius and to the "-" to adjust it to a smaller radius. These rotors are the best in the industry and should last for many many years under normal operating conditions. Far better than anything Rainbird, Toro, or K-Rain offers to contractors or homeowners.

My sprinkler head is stuck spaying in one spot and I can't figure out how to adjust the range and distance of it.


Sounds like you have a bucket impact sprinkler. These are problematic as they tend to beat themselves into non-operation from the moving parts involved and the impacts. They stop turning for a number of reasons, low water pressure, dirt and debris filling the bucket impeding rotation, plants covering the sprinkler etc. If no debris is found and others continue to work on same zone the water pressure is probably unchanged it may just be tired. I suggest replacing it using a pop-up rotor preferably a Hunter PGP-ADJ or PGJ-ADJ Rotor as rotors have only 1 moving part a gear which is sealed inside the sprinkler making them very dependable.

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.
