    Not sure of the pressure there, this man takes care of his own lawn and sprinkler system. He was having trouble with a few heads not going back down completely once the watering was done, he clipped a few pop ups off in the past because he couldn't see them in time when mowing. He has that problem no more. :)

    SB doesn't make heads retract fully, they just make those heads that don't retract fully visible. Now one can tap them down before mowing over them and possibly cutting them off. The water gods are very pleased! :usflag: :laugh:

    Are you a vendor with any of the wholesale supply outfits?

    Ewing, Longhorn and JDL each cover a wide area of the nation, what's their take of the SB?

    You might have some luck with REMOTE PIGTAILS, i think he's selling the string trimmer attachment for heads.

    With those companies catering to mostly pros and not homeowners, I don't see it being a beneficial move to try and get it in those outlets at this time. Being that I would be relying on the pros to tell their customers about the SB. When the time is right, they'll be contacting me.

    You're DFWrong there SB. There is huge home owner traffic at Ewing, don't know abou Longhorn but JDL has a lot of HO traffic too. And lets face it SB, its a little early in the game to get arrogant. You have a long way to go to become a contender.

    "You have a long way to go to become a contender."

    That is true and those big companies aren't going to give a little guy like me, a single product company, the time of day until I make the SB known and can show sales on a much larger scale.

    Here in FL, JDL is more for professionals, don't know much about Ewing other than they have a great reputation online.

    I wasn't being arrogant when I said,"When the time is right". Just the opposite, no one knows who I am yet but I'm working on that.

    You can't just call these big companies and get to the decision makers, believe me, I have tried. Your lucky to get past the receptionist if your a nobody like myself.

    Without question my product is a major "contender" when compared to its competition found on the market today. That doesn't add up to a hill of beans though in the big scope of things. No one knows my product exist for the most part. Arrogant I am not, Determined I am Absolutely!

    If you think you can work me into any of those companies, do your magic, I'll cut you in on the deal. Must be brick and mortar stores, I have the internet side covered already.

    If your product is all you claim it to be, it will sell it'self.

    The branch managers have quite a bit of latitude when it comes to display items and product information. Talk to the guys at the local branches

    That is not true, every time I walk into our local irrigation supply house they have some products on the floor that are from one product companies.

    I do not buy from Ewing, JDL, or Longhorn generally, but I do grab a few odds and ends from them. They usually have a few products out also. You might start at the local supplies and ask if you can set up a small station. You might be surprised at how willing they are. If they can pull in a few extra $$$ they will do it.

    I wish it was as easy as you all make it sound.

    What are some of the products you guys have seen in these places that are from single product companies. I could research the products and contact them to see how they had gotten their product on the shelf.
