Did you have the replacement head with you at the time? You still have to charge for a service call or install labor. Take your pick.

If I was already there and had a extra head on the truck then I would only charge $15.00...buts that just me....


When I upgrade a controller for a customer and they don't want the old controller I always keep them for special circumstances.
I did a service call for existing customer who is a single divorced mom who's esp4si had seen better days. I told her it was her lucky day and I will give her a esp6si for free. She only paid for 1 head replacement, a dv-100 diaphragm and a service call....

As for the repair cost, t + m + mark-up = repair cost

Well, the first lesson to learn is, when replacing sprinklers, ALWAYS replace with AT LEAST the same type of sprinkler that was damaged, or better. Also pay attention to the nozzle with respect to flow.

I have more than a few choice words for lawn boys who replace a high quality sprinkler with a POS, or replace a PGP with a #1 nozzle with a PGP and #3 nozzle. :hammerhead:
