|Irrigation head in need of leveling.|
|Irrigation head must be dug up being cautious of wires.|
Irrigation heads are made to move in the soil. This is so that the underlying pipe does not break when equipment runs over them and to allow for movement amid freeze-thaw events during the winter. Over time, the heads get out of level, get pushed too far into the soil, or the turf grows up around them causing them not to perform as originally intended. As a result it is necessary to dig them up and level them.
|Using a jig, the head is leveled to the surrounding surface.|
|After using this jig, the head will be fine tuned with a bubble level.|
