Swing Joints

Product Code: 100IR1170-PRO

A swing joint acts like a shock absorber under a pop-up sprinkler. When a vehicle drives or someone walks over the top of the sprinkler, it needs to have a small amount of "suspension" beneath it to avoid damaging either the sprinkler or its pipe-connection.

A swing joint acts like a shock absorber under a pop-up sprinkler. When a vehicle drives or someone walks over the top of the sprinkler, it needs to have a small amount of "suspension" beneath it to avoid damaging either the sprinkler or its pipe-connection. The swing joint, set at 45° from horizontal in the soil, allows the sprinkler to move up and down, albeit minutely, thus protecting it from harm. It also allows the sprinkler to be set at exactly the right level with the soil surface, regardless of the depth of the pipe it is connected to. Therefore a swing joint should be treated as a necessity underneath EVERY pop-up sprinkler, regardless of the sprinkler's size. Also, as you top-dress the soil surface each year the sprinkler will eventually need lifting. A swing joint makes this task a whole lot easier!
