Broke 3 sprinkler heads

Quoted <i>Originally posted by drpete3</i> <br />This happened to me once and I jammed one side of a pair of robogrip pliers and started twisting and I got the threads out. I am not terribly handy or familiar wit tools....Where would I get robogrip pilers and how much do they run? My brother-in-law is suggesting I cut out the problem areas and replace them with new pvc pipe and heads.....either way they will both be firsts for me. Thanks Rico

Broke 3 sprinkler heads

The threads are broken off inside the pvc pipe and there is nothing to grab off and twist out. It's kind of like when a lightbulb bets broken while it's still in the lamp and you have to use a potato half to unscrew it. It *****.

Broke 3 sprinkler heads

I have snapped 3 sprinkler heads off with my lawnmower in the past year. How do I get the broken part out of the PVC pipe? Do I have to cut the whole section of pipe out and start again? Help me, I have a fountain bubbling in my front yard because I can't put a new head on, or get the old one out.
