Sprinkler Startup

When you guys advertise irrigation startup and winterizing, how do you word it in your bids?

Irrigation System Maintenance (startup/winterizing/repairs)

That is how I worded it, but it doesn't sound right. I want my customers to know what I'm talking about since many of them probably don't know much about their sprinkler system

Just "irrigation maintenance and repair".

On my bid form I have a box to check off if they would like this service. I can't put "repair" on the bid form seeing how repairs are charged seperately. I want to simply let them know we will turn on the sprinkler in the spring and turn them off in the winter. And of course all repairs will be done and billed as services are performed.

The reason I'm not too sure on the wording is because I have a partner company that I sub this work out to.
