If its only one head which sounds like the last head in the zone. And the rest of the heads are spraying fine. Sounds like a clog to me. You may have to dig the sprinkled headvup back to the end of the pipe run - cut the pipe and flush

If you're worried about the wrath of God bury it underground.

I agree fixit...

I've never had an inspector fail a sprinkler system... and in most cases they've left it completely alone.. in about probably 40-60% of the cases the homeowner is simply trying to do the 'right' thing...but don't over do it.

Other times it's left in dis-array...

Interestingly enough though stats state a sprinkler system can add 1-3% of value to the property up here.

So a check valve down stream of a stink ugly avb valve above ground ... far from the list of priority...

Again if it happens.. Big whoop just fix it
