    Boy talk about a shotty irrigation job..

    the worst part is that they left their calling card on every flag..Like they were proud of what they did..

    Granted I'm not trying to bash this install,But its wrong....It appears they wanted to install the irrigation then the dirt afterwards?

    not really sure..

    here goes.

    I am sure most irrigation contractors have delt with similar construction companies that tell you just get it in even though the site is not ready. They don't want to hear you tell them that there be a logical sequence before irrigation is installed.
     
  3. Maybe that is a wildflower slope and instead of using 12" pgps they put those higher up?

    Any trouble with your r/f hookup?

    Or perhaps they are anticipating alot of erosion due to the PGP's blasting into the hill. :hammerhead:

    Eh, they were supposed to spread the topsoil and the heads would be to grade.

    I don't like doing it, but I have on occasion set the heads high because the landscaper was coming in with 2-3 inches of topsoil.

    Seeing that truckload of topsoil sitting there reinforces my theory.

    true..

    My company refuses to do any type of job like that unless we do not provide a warranty..

    may i ask how they came out?

    They came out just fine. I would come back and adjust the heads after they were done.

    We have switched to just poking up 1' of swing pipe and not connecting a head, and then putting the heads in once the final grade work was done. Works better, less heads munched on by Harley Rakes.
