    No timer?

    :laugh:

    Call your distributor, your rep should be able to give you prices on all the parts you list.

    And besides, tell the lady to wait, or get someone else.

    (Yeah, but it's a bit removed from suburbia, so an adjustment is in order)

    I did have guy today that does this line of work a little more than me he gave me this figure $85.00 a head x 49 heads which is $4,165.00 does that sound right I also looked at zone price of $825.00 x 7 zones = $5,775.00

    my adjusted estimate 6500. let him nickel and dime you down to 5. he gets something, andyou make some money.

    where i'm i'm at, we charge a lot of money ($125/hr.), but we give great service. customers that care about they're property are willing to pay the high price to not worry about things dying in the middle of august, when they're on vacation.

    It's almost easiest to look at the overall property size, figuring that it will be sprinklered corner to corner. Then you modify a base figure by aggravations like sidewalks to go under, tree roots, the seven rottweilers in the fenced backyard.

    I hope 45 psi is not the static water pressure.

    not so much the seven rotties, rather the "presants" they leave behind.

    I'm afraid so on the static water pressure but most of these things that I have put in this area in the county has been around 40 to 50 Psi off the house not at the meter here here on the presants
