Pretty daring doing startups this early, we start last week of April every year. One good 25 degree night and customers blame you for opening them. Never hurts to wait alittle.

Same most don't even call me to open them! It's so easy to do. Who besides local golf courses are watering this early anyway?
I blow out more than I turn on.

They're not watering or automated....doesn't mean you can't perform start ups.

This client called me to have it done. I am only doing his 4 sites, to do as he wants. I warned him of possible freezing, but he says he wants them done.

He requested them open early last year too.
