sprinklerguy is right alot of my spray heads on installed right on top of the line .the biggest problem is the riser breaking off when you run over it with a riding mower i would suggest using a swing joint that way the head will have some movement.if i had it to do all over again thats the way i would go...

4 inch popups are pretty standard unless you like to skip cuts on your grass or keep the grass height higher than 3inches..than step up to the 6 inch head.

As for the lateral and riser idea..yes you can do it, and many folks do...just keep in mind that if it is a high traffic area you may have to fix that head/riser/elbow at some point.

Good luck.

The Pro-Spray schematic illustrates the use of a swing joint to control the depth of the installation. In scenarios where you don't need a swing joint, can you just tee off of your lateral to a riser and screw right into the sprinkler head?

The main situation that I had in mind for this was when you are installing a sprinkler at the end of a lateral line, can you just use a regular ell joint + riser to feed the sprinkler?

Spray head height

Based on recommendations that I've read here, I'm planning on going with Hunter Pro-Spray bodies. I've got a couple questions about sprinkler body height and installation.

<ul>
<li>I see that these sprinkler bodies are offered in different heights. For my small (350 sq. ft.), flat lawn with no obstructions, what is the recommended pop-up height? My biggest radius is 10', and most are smaller.</li>
<li>The Pro-Spray schematic illustrates the use of a swing joint to control the depth of the installation. In scenarios where you don't need a swing joint, can you just tee off of your lateral to a riser and screw right into the sprinkler head?</li>
<li>Is there any requirement or advantage to using Hunter's proprietary swing joint?</li>
</ul>

Thanks for any guidance!
