Anyone still doing new installs?

    I just landed 2 irrigation system installs. Both will begin in about 2 weeks. A little late in the year. But I'll take what I can get, even if it is late. It doesn't really freeze here so we can still install in the fall/winter as long as it's not pouring down rain that day.

    I am sure guys in CA and AZ and TX do installs all year. But anyone else in a semi-cold climate still doing installs?

    Got 2 new ones this week just upgrades though. Customers finally got their pools in and concrete down now want planters and sod so here we go trying to do installs and blowouts. Hopefully we remember to take the right equipment to the right site:laugh: compressor vs trencher

    Yes, I have five residential and three apartment complexes on the schedule right now.
    Blowout????What is a Blowout???:)
    I'm kidding, I what it is but at first I thought you guys were commenting on how my ex-wife blowed out of her size six to a size fourteen.

    Me and Hank have install work year around. Use party tents in the rain,
    snow & freeze is all that slows us down.

    We have another 1.5-2 months worth of installs, personally I am hoping for rain and cold temps to push the work to 08 and if any price increases come down from manufactures we will just make the customers either cut checks for the products then or issue a reflective increase in their contract in 08. (my contracts are great :) )
