  • Move Lawn Sprinkler Head Easily Using Funny Pipe, or Flex, Swing Pipe (7/3/2023) by Blair Gilbert

    Funny pipe, also known as flexible pipe or poly pipe, is a type of irrigation tubing that is used to connect sprinkler heads to the main irrigation line. It is flexible and easy to work with, making it a good choice for moving sprinkler heads.

    Moving a lawn sprinkler head with funny pipe is a relatively easy task that can be done by anyone with basic DIY skills. By following these instructions, you can easily move your sprinkler heads to new locations without having to dig up your yard.

    When you are extending the funny pipe, make sure that you do not kink it to restrict water flow and cause leaks.

    After you attached the funny pipe, test the sprinkler head to make sure it is working properly. If the sprinkler head is not working properly, you may need to adjust the funny pipe or the sprinkler head.
