Cap for Rainbird extension

Hi,

I have just moved into a house with a Rainbird irrigation system and wish to shut off two heads that feed a flower bed. They are currently on 3ft extensions, but would like to stop water flow without affecting other heads in this zone. The system currently has series 15 nozzles. Does Rainbird (or anyone alse) make a cap that fits these extensions to stop water flow completely. I have not seen anything obvious at Home Depot.

Thanks,

Phil

Just turn the screw on the top right, clockwise, till it is off. That will shut off that head.
Thanks,

Pete

Thanks Pete.

I tried that last night but just seemed to increase the 'throw' of the water. I didn't screw it all the way down though, so I'll try again this pm.

Thanks again ( I guess you suspected I was a complete novice!)
