Rotary spray head about 2 inches below surface?

Some of my hunter rotary spray heads are about 2" below ground level. X( I recently purchased this house and have no idea why some rotay spray heads are about 2" below ground level. ?( I had to dig around the spray head to make some clearance for the pop up. ;( The ones where I had to dig now look like golf course holes. ;( Is there a way to fix this problem without digging up the entire lines? ?(Do they make any type of extensions for the rotary spray heads? ?(

Riser extensions

These will do the trick. Dig one up to see what size you need. They have them at SprinklerWarehouse.com

I have the same problem.

I am concerned about raising the rotor while the outer housing is still low.

I have a lot of problem with grass intruding into the housing.

Is there something I can use to extending the outer housing too?

Thanks.

Buy a shovel. Dig away the soil and add what fittings are needed to get the head to the proper height (which is a bit higher than you might think)

That would work...

I would dig uop the head and find the feed from main line to head. Fix it if using funny pipe. If not, add funny pipe .
