Err, unless the pipe is in truly horrific shape you shouldn't need to pop very much at all, most of the time when I am teaching in the pipe I try to get people to pop less, you only need a very small amount of air to change edges and adjust the direction of your skis.
If you are 'rolling out' or hitting part of the deck rather than transitioning smoothly, a possible cause would be a poor body position. It's super common to see people breaking at the waist as they ski up the wall, this makes popping and rotating correctly difficult as your weight is too far forward and if you reach the top you can't change your body position to re-enter the pipe properly.
So as you ski up the wall think about feeling upright and centred or even a little back, I try to feel the back of my calves on my boots and I also find looking up and out of the pipe helps a lot as well. If you have the right stance it will be much easier to transition smoothly and land on the correct edges.
Obviously having not seen you ski this could be inaccurate for you but this is a really common problem. What size pipe are you skiing in? Where?
