    How much would you charge for installing a 4" Pop-up? It is 6' from the mainline. The sod would also have to be replaced.

    The mainline is a 1" poly pipe, ready to go. Except it it 6' away from were the head needs to be.

    I would hate to take your fun away but, How many heads are on the zone now?.... are you sure the zone will handle extra water need to supply the new head and the others. is it a quarter turn, half turn or full circle.... before you get paid by me you will need to answer that question......I would charge 65.00 in my market..

    use a tarp and carefully cut the sod and then put it right back on. cut it in big enough pieces so you dont lose orientation, just like carpet,

    I agree with Turfman, make sure the zone can support an additional head. As far as cost..It'll be approx 62 to 75 dollars depending on head type. (spray/rotor, checked/unchecked)

    Popups can use quite a bit of water so making sure the zone would not be affected too much would be a start. In my area some guys use 100% of whats available when designing so...

    But $75-100 depending on area and soil

    The soil is hard clay and the zone has plenty of room for expansion.
