    I just finished winterizing a new development for a management co.

    There were 9 taps, 9 timers, 180 zones with approx 10 rotary heads/zone & approx. 20 mist/zone.

    I took 6 hours to do by myself.

    What would you charge?(don't tell me $1500/zone)

    Hard to say without seeing it.
    1,200 plus repairs and parts. Have to fix so water doesn't get back in.

    What do you mean by Have to fix so water doesn't get back in. ?

    I too would say between $1200-$1500

    If there is a broken head or pipe that will allow water back into the pipes then it must be repaired.;)

    Did you have an agreed upon price BEFORE you did the work?
     
  6. Billed as a service call it would be around 700.00 plus parts. Now I see the advantage of flat rate pricing on blowouts. You are billing about 8.00 per zone to get to 1500.00

    Where is this water coming from following a 'blow-out'?

    The blow-out price would be in the $1500 range.
