if you read my post jm, i did say that the i-20 has a 5 year warranty. but i dont believe that any spray heads do. 50 bucks for a spray seems a bit high unless it is a 6 inch or 12 inch pop up. 4 inch pop up sprays probably cost about 5 bucks a piece for a sprinkler company. so 50 bucks is some mark up.

Just so you know (lush96) anything that Hunter carries that starts with an "I" (Such as I-20, I-25, Icc and yes the Institutional Spray) carries a five year warranty! Now of coarse, no one knows if it is an Institutional Spray or not, but the pricing seems to be in order.

sprinkler service prices vary depending on where you are. my company is in Long Island NY. we charge 50 for an I-20(which i would never put in my yard by the way), 25 for a spray head, and a 90 dollar labor charge per hour. total being 165. but again, this may vary according to location and company. spray heads do not carry a five year warranty. the I-20 does though. ive been in business 25 years!!!!!!! 50 bucks for a spray head is waaaaaaay too much no matter where you are. and he lied to you by telling you BOTH heads have a five year warranty.

You are definitely not getting ripped off. I've been in the business for 11 years now and I know it inside and out. That's basically what my boss would charge as well. It's a business and there a lot of things to take into consideration.

Well your not happy about it, so find someone else. You will find pricing all over the place. The key is to find someone you trust- which you obviously don't with your current guy.

Not horribly unfair at all. You can wiggle the numbers into a parts-and-labor invoice, and see he was just charging something like a standard repair-call labor charge, along with parts at close-to-retail price. Some folks think they should get a discount for service done at blowout-time, but I never offer one, and never will.

he was at my house blowing out the lines when he did this. So the bill was $50 for the winterizing. and add'l $125 for the heads. Total$175. I just feel that as a woman he may have taken advantage of me. So i just want to know so I know whether I should use him again.

Did he give you a price and/or price range beforehand? Probably not is my guess. He should have, and you should have asked. But, sprinkler repair/install is a seasonal business. Companies have to charge on the higher end of the spectrum to BE in business, otherwise whats the point?

Does your employer/boss ask specifically what you have done/created/sold etc. before he hands you your paycheck? I'll bet there are some weeks "he" feels he is being ripped off. If your boss/employer asked you to start collecting/billing from his customers- monies for the job YOU did, I'll bet you'll soon discover what it costs to be in business- otherwise you wouldn't have a job!

I have my carpets cleaned every year and it costs around $150. I'm sure the soap they use cost about $1.00. Do, I feel I'm being ripped off? Well lets see, I don't have the experience nor do I have the $10,000 plus truck mounted carpet cleaning machine required to do the job properly........Oh yeah, the one guy can do the job in just over an hour.
