I'm sorry, not cable. I mean pipe.

Call some of your local irrigation contractors and ask if they will just pull the poly pipe for you. Some will even help with your design/layout. I did, however, come across 1 contractor who would do all or none! He gave me a quote for the whole job, which was about half labor.

Where can I learn more about having pipe pulled? It certainly seems like a worthwhile way to get the job done. Is this a service routinely offered by irrigation installers? I would think the installer would insist on getting the whole job.

I almost rented a pipe puller ($125 for the day) which would have required a truck rental to tow the trailer, not to mention a full day of hard labor.

I then got three quotes to pull the pipe (7 rolls, 2100 feet, for 10 zones). Quotes were 250, 300 and 450. I contracted the guy for 300, and came home from work one day to have all of the pipe pulled!! Definitely the way to go, and it beats trenching as already explained. All I had to do was connect tees on each zone where there was an offshoot from the main line.

I would have it pulled. We have been doing this ever since we started our business (4 yrs.) and have never got any bad comments on it. What they do is they take this machine with a big knife on it with the pipe attached to the end. Then they stick the knife with the pipe in the ground, and the machine vibrates the blade and travels forward at the same time, pulling the pipe. This hardly damages the existing lawn, while a trencher tears the grass and takes dirt out. When you pull the pipe, you do not have to replace the dirt, as it doesn't take any out. I would always go with pulling the pipe. This works the best with Poly pipe, but you can use PVC.
