Dennis, the store manager and speaker, broke the seminar down into products and techniques. Decent short seminar. Long full days are a drain sometimes and tough to keep my attention. MANY city and county employees attended, partly because they are now getting raises partially based on continuing education, from what I heard. And with dwindling budgets they are trying to find ways to cut water use.

I was thinking that too, that with the water rate increase, should be a good year for water audits/conservation/smart controllers/repairs/lowering golf handicap.

I'm bummed that I missed it.
