not just on the end of a hose plunked in the middle of a space?
this is to install in a sprinkler system?
there's "risers" - just a short piece of pipe really - that screw into the in-ground fitting and you put a non-pop up head on top - used for shrub areas. etc, where the water stream of a pop-up would be "blocked" exiting at ground level.
