    Ok here is a job I Hossed a few weeks ago..sod laid a day later.it finally is catching..we are watering 3 times a day 10 mins a zone....

    I decided 5 mins 3 times a day would be fine for this zone..Upon arival i notices the squish of overwatering. I hate that noise...It appears that all the water is running down this slight hill towards the driveway.I also instructed the carpenters to stay off of if possible..(they never listen)

    The back..as we say in Mass, CAME OUT WICKED PISSAH!!!!!!!

    This one is on town sewer...So there will be a subtraction meter..
    our basic setup for this one..She Screamed out an easy 15 gpm....Houses by the water always have great push with a new water service..

    Why did you put the clock in the basement?

    Because they didn't want it in their kitchen next to the microwave....We have a ton of clocks in basements..

    The better question is Why wouldn't you put the clock in the basement?


    A key tell tale of the early phase of over watering..can you see it?
    I turned this one down 4 mins.. but still running @ three times a day.

    I run the system for a few mins and it puddles up a lot..Anyone ever have this happen to them? The guy is a mason and drives on his lawn..The turf and soil are on farm land...I Think the soil has to much water in it so it is staying on the surface.. The homeowner is over watering..Every other day is what he wants to do so I'll let him

    Keeping it neat!

    Must have been a pretty woman homeowner..otherwise foolish.
    ALL clocks should be outside, with as much of a view of the system as possible. Jeez ROTAR:hammerhead:

    Outside you can come back and do service w/o customer having to be there.

    Inconvenient for both homeowner and tech. Garage is always my first choice.

    Garage is not a good choice..homeowner not home? Most circuits in garages
    tied into other circuits that will fry those kind of clocks.:nono:

    They want it in the basement with all other utilities..works for me...Also they just wanted a system..Not a super JIHAD install....But a regular system.

    Yhea but does your dog kennel sell for over a Cool million for property alone?
    Then they tore the house down, built a new one..so it prob cost the family A mil or 2 to get a nice fully furnished house on the water with all the bells and whistles.
