    Nope. What's the warranty, does that include all adjustments the first season and winterize? Always many questions about the lowballers.

    Sometimes, a better ballpark number comes from knowing the actual property size, and assuming it gets sprinkled from corner to corner.

    Do that, and get "boiler plate" specifications. Who designed the system? How do you know 11 zones will work? :dizzy:

    Warranty even after he touches the system? Not here... Warranties are null and void should anybody other than me or my assigns touch the system for any reason.
