Yes, you can attach a garden faucet to the end of the quick coupler if you need to use the hose there.
I used to take care of a city park and they had quick couplers all over the place.. hmm now that I think about it maybe the quick coupler IS your sprinkler system.
That's how I watered the park. We had rainbird impact sprinklers attached to the top of the quick coupler. My mistake. That's probably what yours is for.

Thanks for the response.

So, would there be any other use for that thing? Because, I don't know of a sprinkler system in my yard. But if there is and I just need to dig it up, that might be cool.

That's called a quick coupler. You need a key to go into there.
Quick coupler key.

Don't worry about that thing. It doesn't have a thing to do with how your sprinker system operates.

Wondering what this is.

My wife found this in our front yard. It seems to be part of a sprinkler system that some previous owner installed. When I flip the cover back and put my finger down in the hole, I would hit some sort of spring loaded thing and some water would come out. Although not anymore. I'm guessing there was some pressure in the line that bled off when I was playing with it. Anyway, it looks like you could put a sprinkler head on this thing. But I've never really seen anything like it. Unfortunately there's no obvious control panel or even a knob anywhere to turn the thing on. And I've not found anymore of these things anywhere else. Anyone have an idea?
