So in other words this poor customer had someone install a crap water feature. She calls another guy who says "yeah, I can fix that" but after two years of "work" she ended up with a rock garden. Interesting.....and sad.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Another episode of "Trunkslammers - The Series".

Turned it into a rock garden? What happened? Did you get in over your head, start having cash flow problems with the business?

Man, that's super disappointing that you let this customer down.

I would be leery of this job, Why did she let the last guy put something in that she is not happy with? I wouldn't touch this job with out a contract,and having it laid out on paper so see can see what you are going to do. In the past I have had clients sign and date the rendering.

What is gpmh? Gpm is gallons/minute and gph is gallons/hour. For the size feature that you are talking about, 25' x 40', 12,000 gph is not enough and 12,000 gpm would be cousin to a flash flood. Somewhere around 20,000 gph is indicated.
