    Just would like to know how much some of you guys charge to fix sprinkler heads? Just got a condo complex and they asked me if i would take care of that. Also need to know how much for start up & winterization. Any thoughts? :help:

    you will probably get a better response by posting this in Irrigation talk

    I myself get $20 + the cost of the head , and I dont blow them out at the end of the season, a guy I know with a concrete company does them for me with his IR air compressor for $30 each and I just mark it up to $50

    Depends if you are licensed for irrigation work or not?
    The laws/regs in each state vary. I would determine your liability first before accepting the work.
    That said, as far as charges go - I receive $50.00/hr per person for repairs to residences, commercial sites are increasing to $75.00, components are charged at full retail rate, with windshield time added to repair costs.
    However, my business is highly reputable, licensed, and carries worker comp and comm liability insurance.

    Repairs - $45/ hr plus materials
    Start up - $45/hr, min 1 hr
    Blow out - $65/hr, min 1 hr
