Watched a wonderfull video, and have a wuestion. the video mentioned the sprinkler was a 12 in pop up, the one in the video looks like a 16 in.
I bought a 12 in pu sprinkler and cut the pvc to 16 in and the shaft only sticks up about an inch. can I cut the pvc to 12 in or what is the recomendation?
thank you in advance

If you watch the video again, you'll see that by putting the spring beneath the plunger, the plunger will fully extend through the PVC housing by about 12". You should have to press down on the plunger to get it to go back into the PVC housing. 16" for the PVC housing seems to be about right to me.

Please let me know if you have additional questions. If you'd like for me to call you, please use the Contact Us form (link is at the bottom of the page) to email me your phone number.
