    I'm curious as to what the going rate for this job would be. Only do one set of rotors to water in a hydro mulch area we are doing. The rotors are throwing "away" from an existing masonry wall. The grass hatch is what we are hydromulching, and the open area is existing grass that we cannot irrigate, thus one row.

    Meter and double check are present. Using Weathermatic T3 rotors, and 1" nitro valves. 14ga uf wire, class pipe, 10" valve box. heads are 32' apart.

    Give me your prices, I'd like to see how I compare.

    I've been out the biz long enough that I don't know current market prices for parts, but I'd say that the absolute lowest I could go would be $2000, covering parts and 16 hours of labor with pretty much no profit in it.

    I'd probably price that at $3500.

    Eagle are implying 1 zone of rotors added to an existing system?

    Something under 3K (and then I could sub it out to Mobile Irrigation and clear 2K)

    Commercial or residential?
    Access to site, type/condition of soil present, amount of nonporous crap left over from wall construction?
    Given an absolutely clean site to start with - a minimum of $3,200.00.
    AI, here in Texas poly won't work. Can't pull it through the intensely rocky soil so everything is trenched or cut with a rock saw.

    Some of you guys are pretty close. Full blown install was thinking 3.5k or a few bucks more. We might just end up running this temporarily above ground. HOA got no money. But then again, we can bill them for the parts, and 45 days later come collect em:)
