    And of course, what better place to propagate rumors than a public forum. :clapping:

    Well then your client should have filed suit and tried to get their money back. Not sure what to tell you. You're presenting one side of the story. We really don't have any way of knowing what really happened..... although.... I know who I can ask who will probably know.... next time I see him I think I will inquire :)

    Please do. :waving:

    This was years ago not last week.

    It is possible that I am telling one side of the story as that is the only one I know. I can tell you one more bit of info... Rainbird said the 20K support plan expired and not their fault the GC did not get the rainwater recovery system functional.

    Nonetheless, I was in the middle of setting more EXP's to run from this site. The client wanted water management and they got it.

    The client paid me for my investment and went another direction. My only real loss was the retrofits and the water management contract that went to Hydropoint. I do not think that would have happened if Rainbird would have just started up this system.


    And I was serious about the trip to disney world too.
