    Hi, I can't figure out how to fix this. The head popped off this metal shrub riser, and I can't get the riser off. Even got an extractor tool but it won't budge. So I thought I would try a new head for it. Nothing works! As you can see from the photo, I only have half an inch to screw on a new head. I also attached some photos of a riser that hasn't broken. Any advice? Thanks!

    All I see is soldered copper. Pipe to adapter for plastic shrub head. Doesn't look broken and 1/2" of thread should be enough. Extractor for what?

    Thanks! I've never had to replace one of these...I got an extractor for the entire pipe, but I couldn't loosen it. I didn't realize there were adapters...everything at Home Depot and Lowes was plastic. Thanks again!
