    I just finished winterizing a new development for a management co.

    There were 9 taps, 9 timers, 180 zones with approx 10 rotary heads/zone & approx. 20 mist/zone.

    I took 6 hours to do by myself.

    What would you charge?(don't tell me $1500/zone)

    Hard to say without seeing it.
    1,200 plus repairs and parts. Have to fix so water doesn't get back in.

    If there is a broken head or pipe that will allow water back into the pipes then it must be repaired.;)

    Did you have an agreed upon price BEFORE you did the work?

    Billed as a service call it would be around 700.00 plus parts. Now I see the advantage of flat rate pricing on blowouts. You are billing about 8.00 per zone to get to 1500.00

    Where is this water coming from following a 'blow-out'?

    The blow-out price would be in the $1500 range.
