Its not particularly difficult to change a sprinkler, but what matters is getting the right sprinkler. If you buy a quality ‘brand-name’ product then there is no question it will last a lot longer than those purchased from a local hardware store.
Its really a classic case of getting what you pay for.
My sprinkler of choice for normal pop-up work is the Toro 3P available at all Total Eden Stores. You’ll pay about $10.00 for sprinkler and nozzle but you can expect to get around 4-5 years out of a quality sprinkler whereas ‘cheapies’ from the hardware store will probably last you a year if you’re lucky.
So if changing sprinklers isn’t your idea of fun on a weekend then buy quality and you won’t have to do it every year.
