Sprinkler heads

Just would like to know how much some of you guys charge to fix sprinkler heads? Just got a condo complex and they asked me if i would take care of that. Also need to know how much for start up & winterization. Any thoughts?

you will probably get a better response by posting this in Irrigation talk

I myself get $20 + the cost of the head , and I dont blow them out at the end of the season, a guy I know with a concrete company does them for me with his IR air compressor for $30 each and I just mark it up to $50

Depends if you are licensed for irrigation work or not?
The laws/regs in each state vary. I would determine your liability first before accepting the work.
That said, as far as charges go - I receive $50.00/hr per person for repairs to residences, commercial sites are increasing to $75.00, components are charged at full retail rate, with windshield time added to repair costs.
However, my business is highly reputable, licensed, and carries worker comp and comm liability insurance.

Going rate here is:
Repairs - $45/ hr plus materials
Start up - $45/hr, min 1 hr
Blow out - $65/hr, min 1 hr
