    This year there have been some call for winterization with repairs.One person ask if we did adjustments with shut downs. This one i said no. Some want heads replace.I told two customer's i would replace the heads.Maybe tell others will do repairs in spring.Does anyone do repair with shut downs.

    I discourage it..

    Blow out mode=no repairs.
    Spring start ups=repair and adjust heads.
    End thread.

    No, your time is too valuable (compressor, etc.) put them on the winter or
    spring list & "keep on winterizing". (Sharp eye kept out for air bubbles,
    wiper seals failing, plugged nozzles will bring you joy in the spring.):)
  4. You winterize in Mississippi? We water year round in Texas and do service year round.

    Ditto on the no repairs. Unless it's a relatively minor repair such as replace broken spray stem that I can repair in 30 seconds flat, we don't do any repairs. We will document them and let the customer know and see if they pre-approve us to do the repair in the spring.
  7. I guess that puts you at 35 degrees latitude. I'm at 33. I can't imagine you need to do blowouts. I'm guessing AVB shut downs mainly.

    Tennessee requires a RPZ and yes that is the main issue's. Customers do like to see the water spray.
