    this guy ive been in talks with for a few years now is a decent installer/has a good company..

    so im doing a turn on today and he pops over the fence and goes,"HEY,Veterino"

    so we talk while our respective clock monkeys were doing the turn on....
    he says, I'm placing a bid on 150 4/5 Z postage stamp on a 1/2 acre Sub Development.

    Can serious $$ be made on these types of jobs?
    Have you top dogs ever installed any of these?

    any info on these would be helpful.

    What are you talking about Rotar? What does "150 4/5 Z postage stamp on a 1/2 acre" mean ???

    not worth it is it?

    It seems that its kind of hack n slap lets get to the next one..When in fact,
    rushing=more mistakes with the crew=more time doing unesscary repair/service work becacuse people were rushing..

    That stinks..

    I was going to get on these.

    It does bite, because those systems never get maintained..they never worked
    right (I surveyed one today) from the git...& AND, in most cases, people like
    us can't ever get them fixed 'cause they're so f....d up!

    150 backfows
    4-5 Zone systems..
    all right next to eachoter..

    on roughly 1/2 acre give or take..

    on a sidenote I could care less what you think, so keep your negative comments towards a homeowner who cares..

    Thanks in advance

    Out here in the wild west, a saddle tee is two people riding the same sheep.
