    Rainman7's post regarding customers not even knowing what/how their systems work got me to thinking. What's one (if you have any) of your "satisfaction points" when installing/renovating a system or zone? For me it's the first time the zone is actuated and adjusted. Then we sit back for a little time (we can afford this) watch the rotation/spray and see how the overall coverage is on ground that has been bare or sparse for some time. We also program the controller to add this new zone although planting hasn't started. It gets moisture into the trench lines to help with final compaction and gets moisture to the bare areas that the grounds guys will work up and plant.

    The first time I fire it up is the most satisfying moment for me.

    Its also great having the customer applauding you for not wrecking their lawn because you used a plow.

    I don't have this problem because I'm basically my own customer. :p
