After being clobbered by a softball size hail.

Long time client called needing a price for a replacement.

Wireless unit, full retail price and 1 hour labor...

Yup, I heard about the hail out there. 2 billion dollars worth of claims in the first 36 hours after the hail storm from what I saw on local news.
How'd you fair with the storms?

$250. I did one for $200 last week and i should Have charged 250 per my tech recommendation.

Sprinkus,
Likely the largest stones I have ever seen at this home but we got off easy with walnut sized stones where as this guy and others just miles away got softball / grape fruit sized.

That is two bad hail storms this year.

according to ewing the unit is more than $250 retail. IIRCC Retail for the wireless unit is 385.00

This is the ET controller. The wireless sensor is very high but on retros without a sensor install, the client saves money on the labor to run the wire.

Also to be fair the clients is getting a new roof and several other things.

Wow, those are pricy. We've only installed Hunter & Rainbird wireless. My price was based on those.

Sorry for the bad guess.

You mean it didn't fail on it's own? It took a piece of hail to take it out? Damn, you get all the good ones. :dizzy:

It is a local company, even if they are made in China, I could always drive over there and complain. They have been good supporting me.
