    Too many variables for a ball park; suffice to say the system has to be in top operating condition before any cost can
    be figured out as to start-up and winterize, otherwise, it's time & materials to get it up to snuff.

    I guess we are pretty cheap to most.

    During peak times.
    65$ For the first hour and 58 for every hour after

    Non peak $58 for the first and $48 for every hour

    We usually have 2 people on a job... which I must say it doesn't always work to the customers advantage

    Let's get those wages up, boys and girls. A tech with experience should be right up there with the plumbers and electricians.

    Agreed. Plumbers and electricians are necessities, irrigators are luxuries.
    Average start up costs $75. That includes 1 hr of labor, parts are extra. Average systems I can do in an hour- inspect controllers, inspect pump, open VB inspect, pop up all zomes, inspect heads, talk with customer, TRY TO UPSELL, and that's about all.
