I need to turn off three of my sprinklers that are no longer needed. They are on risers. This is an older system and the house is newly purchased by myself and my husband. I notice some sprinklers behind an established hedge and were no longer needed have are already turned off. How do I do this with a few more?
Thanks, LaVonne

Get a small FlatHead ScrewDriver and insert on top of Nozzle and turn to the right clockwise . Nestor's vpn1@attbi.com

You could also remove the entire nozzle(s) and the other part (PA8) that screw on top of the riser, the thread part, a threaded cap, probably a 1/2".

This will also add additional pressure to other head(s) that might need it.

Going with a threaded cap is good encase you want to put back the nozzle(s) if you add plant material later.

if you shut off the nozzle with the scew, you wont have to replace anything later down the road....its much easier! and gives the same effect of having the part capped off

I agree with not removing anything if you don't have too but sometimes when screwing down a nozzle water sprays out the screw.

Turning down screws option 1

Capping option 2.
