    Try www.irrigatortech.com 909-614-1755

    They are located in Southern California so I don't know if it is much help to you, but maybe you could order some of their training material? Hope it helps you

    I got some info in the mail on a two or three day training program through rainbird. You might e-mail one of there contacts at there site and see if they do anything like that in your area.

    most of the training i see is in CA.. they must do a lot of irrigation there
     
  7. Only because it's always sunny just about every day. :rolleyes:

    Most of the lawns aren't that big, so you can install a system at a reasonable rate. Most people want a nice yard, but don't have the time to water.

    Most of all...
    Rainbird
    Hunter
    ... just to name a few, corporate headquarters is located here in the sunny state.
