We were at $45 for the longest time, bumped up to $55 and had not one complaint, everyone is still at $45 though but our price bump still works for us.

we had a hit of fall weather and then some rain so people started calling to get winterized... the latest I could make one lady wait is the 25th of sept... I guess it's good though... the more I get done early the more room I'll have later when we get busy

anyone have experience with powered reels? I'm looking for some pros and cons of air vs. electric power reels...

I have air power right now but ran into some problems since I didnt have a proper lubricator on it last year... the reel had some problems when temperatures got below freezing. How well will electric work below freezing?

I'm going to try to post a pic of my setup... ICS mentioned something about his reel being on a swivel before... that'd be real cool so you can also get a good angel rolling it up.

I don't know how to post the pics cuz I already posted them once... I forgot how to do this?

they are the first three at this thread

I am also going to take of the IR stickers and get it lettered... something like "don't let your sprinklers freeze! call us ...." any ideas?

Easiest way I've found is to save the original pick, i.e. Hose Reel, as Hose Reel 1 (or whatever turns you on) and you'll be able to upload it again. The server thinks it's a different picture because it has a different file name.

Even easier is to save the URL of the uploaded image, and to use the {IMG} tags to insert it into your further postings.

Pikes Peak got snowed on this weekend and it was cool, foggy, rainy much of the weekend. This has caused a lot of people to call us early and get on the list. A few people are ready now for winterizing, and we shut down and drained one so far (the house is on the market and they moved out of state). So I'm hoping to get this compressor we're looking at today and start things early this year.
