You and I think a lot alike. I already told the owner he needs to get some hoses out there with a couple of oscillating sprinklers or something to get the turf watered for now. My dad, who was in the business for 18 years, is very pushy. Every time I mention doing something, he has to force his opinion on me, and I sometimes cave in.. But I have to realize this is MY business, not his. I think you are correct about having a specialist coming in and fixing the problem. I am not a specialist, therefore no I do not want to own this mess. It is a large mess.. I can fix smaller messes.. but this is a big issue.
Unfortunately, there is only one actual irrigation specialist in my area, believe it or not, and he is a jerk. I tried to contract out a sprinkler installation job with him once (about 2k worth of business for him) and he was all cool about it until I told him I own a landscape maintenance company and it is for a customer of mine.. So I'm going to have to figure something out quick.
