    So in other words this poor customer had someone install a crap water feature. She calls another guy who says "yeah, I can fix that" but after two years of "work" she ended up with a rock garden. Interesting.....and sad.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Another episode of "Trunkslammers - The Series".

    Turned it into a rock garden? What happened? Did you get in over your head, start having cash flow problems with the business?

    Man, that's super disappointing that you let this customer down.

    we would have knocked that thing out in a day and a half.....we would have been running 2 pumps at 2-3k gph....that water feature could have been awesome....we are designing a 25 ft tall rock feature in my own backyard (25ft tall / 40ft wide) will be frames and then spraycreted to look like natural rock formation...will have several different sized and styles of falls...gpmh's somewhere in the 10-12k gph....

    I would be leery of this job, Why did she let the last guy put something in that she is not happy with? I wouldn't touch this job with out a contract,and having it laid out on paper so see can see what you are going to do. In the past I have had clients sign and date the rendering.

    What is gpmh? Gpm is gallons/minute and gph is gallons/hour. For the size feature that you are talking about, 25' x 40', 12,000 gph is not enough and 12,000 gpm would be cousin to a flash flood. Somewhere around 20,000 gph is indicated.
