Methods for Raising Sprinkler Heads

September 23, 2010

John Newton, CGCS, Veenker Memorial Golf Course is interested if anyone has a good method for raising sprinkler heads. If anyone has an alternative procedure beyond the traditional method of digging the head down to the swing joint, please share your thoughts by leaving a comment at the end of this post.

John’s question immediately made me think of the LeveLift system. I first learned of the LeveLift device during a presentation from one of our students who had interned at a golf course that had one. It’s definitely work checking out If you have never seen it before. The LeveLift was developed by a former golf course Superintendent. The device uses the water pressure from the irrigation system to lift the sprinkler head into a level position. You can see a video of the LeveLift system in action by clicking here.
