To all of the do-it-yourselfer's and those who have been ripped off/raped by the infamous "stick it to 'em" sprinkler professionals out there. I have but one question. When you all hire a contractor do you actually check references? Find out who you're hiring before they take advantage of you!

We answer specific questions all the time. We also ignore way-too-general inquiries, since the people posting them are too lazy to use search engines to reach the information that's already out there.

Go right ahead and tell the nice man how to fix sprinklers. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

You look like a walking advertisement. CUT THE SIGNATURE AD! Go visit another forum where they have heated discussions but real information.Then use some of that here. try "Mike Holt" for instance. you guys do remember Electrical CODES don't you? Or do they follow CODES in this industry?

But, don't get pissed off when you discover the "sprinkler repair guy" is actually making a living off the jobs he does- and you figure out you could have done the job yourself for much less. I'm sure the other guys on this site like myself get tired of customers wanting a repair made the same day they call and actually have the nerve to bitch about the price we charge. If you get a high price, call someone else!

Tom and Others, I think you guys have missed the Boat on this and all these Posts. this is a Forum to help others not run them down.
IF YOU GIVE GOOD ENOUGH <font color="red"></font id="red">HELPFUL<font color="red"></font id="red"> INFORMATION YOU WILL HELP YOUR INDUSTRY AND EVERY ONE ELSE WILL WANT TO HIRE YOU OR OTHERS LIKE YOU IN THEIR OWN TOWN! LET THE HOME OWNER TRY HIS LUCK AT IT AND THEN THEY WILL COME BACK TO YOU FOR HELP AFTER THEY HAVE FAILED AND WILL BE WILLING TO PAY THROUGH THE NOSE, AT THAT POINT!!!!!
LISTENING TO THESE POSTS I WOULDN'T WANT TO HIRE ANY OF YOU.
BESIDES I DO ALL MY OWN WORK TOO LIKE "rtswis" FOR JUST THIS REASON.
LATER....
MUCH LATER
