Anyone experienced in installing "smart" systems? What do you think about them? Are they are difficult or easy sell (for commercial AND residential customers)?

What do you mean when you say "smart"? ET based? if that is it it will save between 30% and 50% water...so they say. I have a few guys that are using them here in MN.

That's exactly what I mean. ET-based/weather-based...

Anyone installing them? Are they profitable? Easy to sell?

Depends on the market. CA, AZ I hear they are selling very well. If you do your homework it will profit you. You have to show them how much it will save them in water and that they will be saving money in the long run. Then you can charge them a bit more for your knowledge (UP SELL). As for here they sell to the people who know about plants and grass and under/over watering. But this is the "land of 10,000 lakes" so not to many people are as concerned about saving water.
