Call back? Won't you be the one turning the system back on in the spring and doing a complete check?

Not always. I had touted best systems as being reliable enough to simply switch on the water and controller, and no pro from dover needed.

It's because your mind is soggy. Any problems with the system should be observed when winterizing and noted for winter or early spring repairs.

Winter repairs after winterizing?

Open another stubbie, dorkwad. In the PNW, we work all year around, so any anomalies noted during winterize are fixed before the season starts.

OK numbnuts, maybe that only works in your little corner: turn the water back ON after winterizing to make and verify repairs and then have to blowout/winterize again. Have fun digging in frozen ground that had to be winterized in the first place. The only stubbie is in your hand!

Gee, I'd not thought of that scam, however,only schlock, piker lowlifes fail to get the repairs made before the season starts. A tad fine tuning upon start-up should suffice. Brass nozzles have arrows on them, rotors can be adjusted dry, by the way.
