    I have a new mowing account for a big builder in the area and they asked me about a temp. irragation system and if I could put them out for them until the house sells. Can any one tell me what a temp. system is, where to get it, how much to charge, and how to put it up.
    Thank you, Dale.

    Just a timer w/ sprinklers. Expect them to get stolen & charge accordingly. If they don't, consider it more profit.

    (1) Attach female hose end to hose bibb.

    (2) Drop male hose end on ground in area to be watered.

    (3) Turn hose bibb on.

    (4) Move male hose end as necessary.

    (5) Run from any "big builder" wanting a temporary sprinkler system.

    10/4 on the above, we've done it for OUR clients where plants need to be kept
    alive while our contruction is being done..Stream-Rotors on Rain towers w/
    Gardena timers, etc. But Purp's #5 is right on!

    Here's your temp irrigation system. Just add a hose bibb timer.


    Make your own setups with your favorite heads and lease them to the builders on a weekly fee basis. Tell him it's just like when builders rent temporary tall security fences around their projects.:laugh:
