Putting in Swimming Pool

We put in a sprinkler system last fall and now we would like to add an above ground pool. Would it be okay to cap off a rainbird 5000 rotor head and leave the flexible pipe under the pool to the other heads in the zone? Or are we asking for trouble?

You can cap off. ALthough if you used funny pipe that has not been metal clamped which usually does'nt need to be when connected right a head, just clamp it to prevent pressure from bursting out.

This particular rotor head is in the middle of three sprinkler heads in a row. I called RainBird Co. and they suggested rerouting the pipes instead of leaving them under the pool. What do you think about this? When the pool co. comes to dig out the ground for the pool do I need to worry about them destroying the pipes? Would this be a good time to move the pipes around the pool instead of underneath the pool? Thank you for your reply. The pool is scheduled to be put in May 27th.
