    When speaking of what you do/are or refer to your work, are you a sprinkler guy or an irrigation guy?

    If this has been discussed before, pardon me, I am feeling too lazy to search!

    I refer to myself as a "Sprinkler man" My DBA has Lawn Sprinkler Service in its title.

    "Irrigation Contractor" sounds better to the potential client if it's high end..
    I'm still a "sprinkler guy"

    Your poll should have "none of the above". :)

    And maybe a spot for "just a monkey slapping pipe together". :laugh: :laugh:

    As I do more and more commercial stuff, I wish the company was "Irrigation" instead of "Sprinklers".. on a commercial site, sprinklers are used for fire suppression, so there is always some confusion.

    This why they put the word "lawn" in front of the word "sprinklers" :p
