Hunter Sprinkler Not Long Enough

My Hunter sprinkler heads don't pop up high enought to get a good spray over the grass. Is there a way to add an extention or do I have to dig them up and raise the entire head?

What model? And what do you mean by not having a good spray over the grass?

If you have 4 inch pop ups you can switch to 6 or 12 inch pop ups maybe depending on what you have.

Either way you have to dig up the head to raise it or to add an extention. They make a pvc riser extension 3/4" MPT X 3/4" FPT that work well for rotors. 1/2" MPT X 1/2" FPT work well for sprays. Verify the size first.
