I collected my diagnosis fee and left.


((I have actually gotten to the point where--- Upon arriving at the job and meeting the customer, if a very pretty lady answers the door-- i already somehow know that its going to be a damned frustrating ordeal.))
Times are tough, you're single, need I say more.

You should be documenting the condition of the irrigation system as you find it, as you fix it and before you leave it.

My guys were outfitted with latex gloves so no DNA trace could have been made should they fool with the clock before proper testing procedures were made and the client was informed as to an estimate to repair/replace.

Documentation Jim?

"Client request me to attempt to manually run zone the zones"
"I begin attempt of manual operation of the zones as requested, no zones apply water"
"Client says: "well the systen just worked this morning, what did you do?" "

I think you hit the nail on the head when you stated smething able skilled non-payers

not sure what you intended to mean with the times are tough, single remark
_______
what are the proper testing procedures Mr. Leary?

I touched the controller in order to be able to prodivde an estimate, i dont see how it could be otherwsie....?

Notice anything wrong in the first pic?

Just an example Rhett. I took video of the testing, there is a bad transformer among other things wrong with this controller.
