But then anyone can install or maintain an irrigation system which is why there are so many rubbish systems put in, mainly by landscapers. New developments will sometimes ask for a plan of the irrigation system and state that it must be installed by a licensed contractor and also give them as built drawings, but that is pretty rare. It's really just a free for all.

Good to hear the young bloke OP make the right decision to pass on the irrigation work.
But you are saying that with a 6 month course and 3 yrs experience you still have junk systems, what happens when you have 40 hrs and no experience requirements?
