    What kind of drip tubing? Blank, then punch in emmitors or driptube with emmitors on 12" or 18" spacing. Big difference in price between the two.

    To keep it simple just charge your labor rate (Im at $65hr) + materials. (List Price)

    Dont overbuy materials, if your just starting out in irrigation. Buy enough to do the job unless you have more jobs lined up to do.

    I am upselling to my customer base this year with it and my new installs. Large or small. I plan buying enough do my average size homes and add on from there.

    Down here in Florida, we charge $45 an hour in labor and $ 2.00 a foot.
