this guy ive been in talks with for a few years now is a decent installer/has a good company..

so im doing a turn on today and he pops over the fence and goes,"HEY,Veterino"

so we talk while our respective clock monkeys were doing the turn on....
he says, I'm placing a bid on 150 4/5 Z postage stamp on a 1/2 acre Sub Development.

Can serious $$ be made on these types of jobs?
Have you top dogs ever installed any of these?

any info on these would be helpful.

of sites...sad but true...now, if there were specs & inspection of performance

not worth it is it?

It seems that its kind of hack n slap lets get to the next one..When in fact,
rushing=more mistakes with the crew=more time doing unesscary repair/service work becacuse people were rushing..

That stinks..

I was going to get on these.

It does bite, because those systems never get maintained..they never worked
right (I surveyed one today) from the git...& AND, in most cases, people like
us can't ever get them fixed 'cause they're so f....d up!
