Ace, Home Depot, and Lowes all have those items. I can't speak for any other hardware stores because I haven't been in them. I got mine at Home Depot because they're marginally cheaper.

The risers are simply small pieces of gray SCH80 PVC that are threaded on either end for sprinkler attachment.

The flush bushing can be replaced by *any* adapter that connects two pieces of PVC, one 3/4" and one 1.5".

Please correct your capitalization. If all else fails, go online for the parts.

I went to the True Value hardware store here in backwater country, and found the very parts you lack...in 5 minutes. The Ace hardware store probably has them too, but they're closed on Sundays (as is everywhere else in town; just like the old days).

They're actually very common parts for irrigation systems.

Did you ask the "helpful hardware folks" wherever you went? That's what they get paid for, and 9 times out of 10 they'll know exactly where you're items are.

Go back. And good luck.
