New to Irrigation. Irrigation experts please reply

Hey everybody hope all is well. I'm wanting to learn irrigation and add it into my business. I've read on here about "Turf Irrigation Manual" is a must have and about rainbird, toro, hunter systems etc. I'm trying to learn everything I can. Is there any videos you can buy to learn more on irrigation,installing and design etc? Thank you for any help you can give me.

I don't see why. I read through is most recent posts about biding an install and it seems he got some sound advice with minimal abuse.

Being from Texas all I can say is there should be some sort of organization regulating the trade in every state like tceq for instance. Go to the tceq website enter your city or zip code and it'll show you any instructors in your area if any. If all else fails...YouTube.

Irrigationtutorials so definitely a decent site to get information off of. The site explains, in detail, how to design systems with municipality and well systems. I think the guy who provides the website also can be emailed regarding specific questions, for a fee though. However one could read all they want about irrigation but until they have done the work all the reading means means little. it will take you a couple years of experience to get a feel for doing service work, installs will probably be easier to learn. It would be more beneficial to work with someone who is licensed and knows what they are doing initially.

Knowledge doesnt make up the lack of experience. The people who are successful are open and willing to try new things and take other peoples suggestions. And no one does anything perfectly the first time. I wouldnt try and learn everything at once, I didnt. Get proficient with a certain area and move on to something else. Maybe start with something small like switching out old heads?
