    Always buy as cheap as you can get , a good 3 hp electric with 200 ft of extention cord will do the trick , Set your price at $25.00 per system up to 10 zones and $3.00 each extra zone with a warranty , schedule about 20 a day and you will make out great .

    Hey, it can be done. Don't doubt the power of a 3hp electric until you try it.
    Besides, we all had to start somewhere.
