    Can't you just see the written report from a Kiril audit?????

    Your system is ineffective and wasteful. Your watering living things. Shut it all off and plant rocks.:hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead:

    Id like to start offering the service to our commerical clients at some point. I think its a great idea.

    Audits should be part of an irrigation managers tasks.

    These are definately going to be big in the future as water prices increase in most parts of the country.
    My next question is how much to charge. Lets say on a residential system that is 6-8 zones. I have a couple of #'s in my head...one is what I think it should cost, another is what I am afraid we will have to charge until (if) these catch on with customers.
