    I'm new to this type of work. I'm going to try it out on my yard this year. What are some things I need to start up? Whats a good supplier? I have a brown trencher to trench the line. What do you charge to put in 1/4 size lots? I know it can vary. What a good hourly rate? $60 an hour?

    thanks

    Dude, you got to help yourself, and do some reading. If you don't want to make a proper effort to learn, then hire it done, and observe from a polite distance.

    Someone mentioned in another thread that you're getting a little "out of control" but I like the new you and want some of whatever you're smoking. :clapping: :laugh: :drinkup: :headphones: :dancing:

    Heck... That's when all hell breaks loose around here. 107 controllers go on and the work orders come flooding in. Not uncommon to be at least 30 work orders behind during the entire summer.

    I have three main line repairs coming up to keep me busy: 1-6" and 2-4" mains to repair as soon as the Bobcat is available.
