How to Replace a Sprinkler Head

First, shut off the water to the sprinkler system. This is usually done at the main water valve near your house.

Once the water is shut off, go to the broken sprinkler head and remove it by unscrewing it from the riser. Be careful not to damage any of the threads.

Now, take your new sprinkler head and screw it onto the riser. Once it’s tight, turn on the water to the system and check for leaks. If there are no leaks, then congratulations!

You’ve successfully replaced your sprinkler head. If there are leaks, then you may need to tighten the connection or try a different sprinkler head.
