So you're just gonna tear up the new sod you put down? Shouldn't you have installed that first?

It might rain

Sod sucks, you should have seeded.

$1,800?? That's cheaper than the craigslist hacks who advertise "irrigation systems installed $100 a head"

I'm surprised when a professional forum begins posting prices online.

The deduct meter is good, the water company sells them for $250 then come out and inspect it, then you can have your back flow put in then they come and inspect that, the deduct meter is also tied into a spigot I have in the back yard so I can fill my pool with and not have to pay sewer charges on that water. Where I live the sewer is alot more than the actual water charges.

well, technically he did say COST...so yeah, parts would be in the ballpark around $1800

as far as installation goes, it depends on the set up...if you are using rotors and sprays, you could possibly have 8 zones...if you go with MP's, you could possibly have 4 zones...doubt this system could be put in for under 4k...probably peaking around 6k...keeping in mind i have never seen this yard

and yes, this forum it touchy...even touchier than the hardscaping forum

any help on pricing would be appreciated. I am guessing around $1800?
thanks

Were you planning on doing this or price shopping for the customer? If you can post a detailed drawing of the watered areas, water pressure, water source (from dedicated meter, tap off of house & etc) we might could give a general idea. Like someone said the system should have been installed before sod
