How do you change the direction of a pop up sprinkler head?

Flip the trip lever at the base of the irrigation system upwards to allow the head 360° when dispersing water. To adjust the distance that the head will travel when dispersing the water, flip the trip lever to the right and use the arc adjustment rings.



Also, learn how to change the direction of a sprinklerhead.

To increase the arc of the Hunter rotor heads, insert the plastic key into each adjustment socket. This socket can be found on top of each sprinkler head. You should turn the adjustment wrench clockwise in 360 degrees. This will increase your arc 90 degrees every time you turn the wrench full circle.

Also, why do sprinkler heads cease rotating? To move freely, damaged internal components must be lubricated. Water is the most common lubricant. Some sprinkler heads contain oil to lubricate the gears. The rotating motion will cease if the oil leaks or dries out.

How do you fix a sprinklerhead that won't turn?

How to Do It

  1. Disassemble the sprinkler head.
  2. Remove the filter from the bottom of your head.
  3. To remove any debris, rinse the filter in a bucket of clean water.
  4. If this fails, you will need to have your sprinkler head replaced.
  5. If it works, ensure that the head is correctly adjusted before you reinstall it.

How can I adjust the sprinkler pressure?

Turn the flow control counterclockwise until the water stream from the nozzle starts to drop. This will adjust the master valve in your sprinkler system. This will lower the water pressure. Slowly turn the flow master valve flow control until the spray pattern reaches its maximum radius.
