Works great until it doesn't! Flawed design.
End blew off after 3 years. 18" riser. Retainer just press fits into vinyl tube. Nothing prevents it from popping out. Retainer should have a barb. "Thank you for the feedback. Please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help in any way we can. " - sure you can send out a crew to locate and dig up the rest of the pipes before they blow. How about fixing the product? Max is 100psi - I'm lucky to get 35psi.

    After several months underground, the vinyl hose loosens around its connector and easily slips off, requiring dig up. The vinyl hose also kinks easily, reducing or stopping water flow. This item is unsuitable for its intended use, but it looks good when new, and there is no warranty.

      Not worth putting in the ground as they only last a season or two
      At first, I thought these were great... I was converting very outdated brass heads to rotary nozzles which require a taller body to accomodate the new rotary heads. I bought these I could place the taller bodies deeper into the ground as they were too tall when attached to the risers and I have a very mature yard where I can't bury the water pipes any deeper in the ground. For the first year, everything was great. However, after a year or two, the hoses separate from their connecors and cause massive leaking and sometimes little to no water coming out of the head. The connections are internal and cannot be restored or corrected, so they have to be replaced. If you want to keep digging the same heads up, year after year, to replace the hoses, then these will work fine for you. However, if you want a more permanent solution, I suggest using Rainbird 1/2" Swing Pipe, the correct elbow/inserts and band clamps. I started replacing these blue extensions with stronger homemade versions and have not had to replace any in several years now.

        I wish I had read the reviews before I bought and installed these. Just like everyone else, I have now had to dig up my sprinkler system and replace these with the regular PVC risers because the joint failed and began leaking. Seriously, do not buy these, they are horrible.

          Unfortunately, this flexible riser will not work under significant pressure and the connection will separate after any significant use. If you have low pressure, they might work. I spent last weekend digging up and replacing my sprinkler heads with these and I will spend this weekend digging them up and replacing them with regular pvc fittings. The manufacturer should provide a limitation on the product for a pressure rating - but then again, that probably would have prevented me from buying them. There is a reason that they come with no warranty.

            These work great when you need the flexibility to move a sprinkler head but they do pinch easy restricting water flow so you have to be very careful when backfilling dirt around the head. I also had a few of the plastic hoses disconnect from the threaded end, so I would ha e extras of these on hand.

            DO NOT fall for it
            Seems like a great idea until a bunch of them (about 1 in 5) blow out because the clamp is weak. I get that they can’t or shouldn’t hold under a lot of extra pressure but considering most water supply is at 100ish they should have been engineered to 150.

            jporange, the typical household has a water pressure of somewhere around 40-50 PSI. If your water pressure is significantly higher than that, you may want to look into solutions that will help you avoid having to regularly replace sprinklers or irrigation parts.
