Does anyone here know how to turn off a sprinkler head like this?
I rotated the top of it counterclockwise and want to make sure that that did it.
This isn't at my residence, so I can't turn on the system to check it.

Just what little I know of my own system, Ive never known of a head you could "turn off" . You can dig it up and cap it.

Yeah, after doing some more googling, that seems to be the only way to fix this particular head.

It's most likely screwed onto the pipe. Just unscrew it and screw on a cap.

When in doubt, set the hook.

I have the same heads in my system. You can actually turn them off, it takes a key. Place into the center slot on top of the head to adjust the spray & it will actually turn it off.

Getting that key into the screw is a mofo. They are always clogged up with dirt. I have about 40 of those heads. They are a pain.
