Last Wednesday i had a service call here in Wilson. The customer said a sprinkler I installed last summer quit rotating. He asked if it would be covered under warranty, i told him sure no problem. This client is on a well & i informed him if there is any debris or sand from the well in the sprinkler i cant warranty the sprinkler. Sure enough after taking apart the sprinkler it had some sand in the bottom of the can. As my employee proceeded to replace the sprinkler the customer & i walked around back to the well, we took the cover off and i bent down to explain where we would have to install a sand filter. After talking for about 20 seconds squating down the customer yells snake get back!! A copperhead was no less than one foot from my knee. Why it didnt bite god only knows, i got up & back slowly and it took me 10 seconds to find the thing, it was so well camoflouged!! We prompty got a shovel and cut it up. I feel very fortunate, that could have ruined my week!
