Looking for Funny Pipe to connect the sprinklers

I am looking for the hose that connects from the main line to the sprinkler head. I am told it is called "Funny Hose". Can you help?

Larry,

We sell the funny hose or swing joints and they are found on the following link on our website:

http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/shop3/MiscRisers.html

This is the best method for connecting sprinkler heads to the pipe since it allows you to move the head to the exact depth and position very easily. This method also prevents pipe damage due to heavy objects such as cars and mowers running over the sprinkler heads.

I hope we have helped. If you still need more info, please reply.

Thank you from SprinklerWarehouse.com <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

I need to move a sprinkler head from about 2 feet from the pipe to about 7 feet from the pipe. Can I run 7' funny pipe from the pipe to the sprinkler head?

THe answer is maybe. the only way this would be advisable is if that head only requires about 1 gallon per min of flow. Is this a rotor or a spray head? Spray then full circ, 1/2, 1/4 ? if rotor who maKES the rotor and what # nozzle is in it?
Thanks,

Pete

It is a rotor and the arc will be set for a little more then 1/4 circle (but not quite 1/2). The rotor is Rainbird 42SA. The nozzle is the standard, default nozzle that comes with a new head.
