leaky hunter pcp sprinkler head

I am getting a large amount of water leaking out of the bodies of several of the sprinkler heads when the zone is running. They are pop-up heads and it appears that the water is coming from where the pop-up and body meet, but it is hard to see exactly because of the volume of water coming out. Can this be repaired or must I replace it? It is happening to several of the heads. Thanks for your help.

Hi, I'm thinking you mean PGP. It sounds like the seals are bad. I'm assuming they've been installed for quite some time since so many are leaking. You'll need to buy new sprinklers.
What you can do though is just take the working parts out of the new sprinkler and screw it into the old body so you don't have to completely dig each one up. Good luck!

If I can't fix it, it's broken!
