Sprinkler Extension

I have Irritrol sprinklers with female thread connection on the sprinkler head and an elbow with a male thread on the end of the hose. I want to extend the sprinkler to clear my plants. I need an extension with a female thread on one end and a male on the other end. All of the extension seem to be male on both ends and and I don't see any adapters (couplings) available on the websites. Am I missing something?
Thanks, Norm

Hi Norm. You name it they probably have it. I carry male adapters on my truck with threads on both sides just for raising sprinklers an inch. If you need to raise it farther you can just use a coupling with threads on both sides then a riser. My favorite online fitting website is http://www.my-tee.com/ One to two day shipping everytime I've used them.
If I can't fix it, it's broken!
