    What do I need to do to learn how to install and repair sprinkler systems? Is their a specific class I can take? Or do I just need to work for a sprinkler installation company? I've gotton many requests from customers for this kind of work. Thanks.

    See if you can work for free with a local sprinkler co to learn a few things.

    either that, or it's a good time to make friends with a local irrigation contractor.

    you send him irrigation work, and have him teach you the basics of servicing and have him send you lawn mowing jobs (or whatever it is you do exactly).

    everyones happy, and you have a lasting business relationship.

    go to a nearby town and work for someone. That way you can tell him you're starting a business and you won't be his competition. Also read irrigationtutorials.com. I also found a good book on Amazon: "The Complete Irrigation Workbook" by Larry Keesen. Its very technical.

    Maybe it's time for a "sticky post" that stays at the top of this forum? :)

    If the sticky gets approved and goes up then we'll leave it to you to post up a thesis on stagnant pressure. :laugh:
