I do not have any business debt or I would have paid that off also.

3 weeks ago I just got another request for bid to do the "phase 2" temp system that is 40-50 zones. We still have all the pucks from the last job and I still have all of the MP's.
Pucks?

After construction you have to re-vegitate all areas disturbed. Most of the time it is large retention/detention ponds, parks, large commercial, etc.


Pucks= Battery operated controllers that mount on the valve. They look like hockey pucks.
