The first three are all from the same site. The QC along with eight others was installed before the dcva.

So back in July I get a call from the caretaker of this place that I have work for 6 years. He wanted a price on installing drip on the tiered walls on the hill to water grasses. I go and look and told him it would be about $5,800 +/-. He then tells me the landscaper gave the home owner a price of $2,500 and asked if I would match it. I said no way and told him to watch out because that price was way too low.

So today i was there blowing it out and it was my first time back since i gave my price and I got to see what this clown did. I look down on the hill and see he ran 2 lines on drip in a 4' bed of pure sand; no valve box; never wired the valves; manifold not connected to the main. I don't even think it will work when I straighten it out n the spring. The way the guy fed the drip I don't think it will make it to the end. You get what you pay for I guess.

Kinda like " orange juice , all ya can drink for .25 cents" and when they ask for more you tell them that is all you can drink for .25 cents.

At least he didn't bury the valves.....lol. Looks like it would be around 4000' of dripline. Even at $5800 you weren't going to make a killing given the conditions you are dealing with.

I lived out on the Island for a year. There was some really nice work, but the bad jobs were really bad. I'll have to remember to snap a few shots for this thread as there are some real prize installers here where I'm at as well.
