The sprinkler blowouts "Big Sweep" we planned for Thursday almost turned into the "Big Weep" instead.  We found two properties we couldn't do because of shut-off valves buried deep in dirt, or unable to find them at all, and then two that were big enough problems that it took us three times the normal time […]

We made a big dent in sprinkler blowouts in the Meridian 83642 zip code, but due to problems with a few systems we fell behind some leaving 3 unfinished. This is just one of many reasons why we do not make appointments.  If there is a problem on a system that we aren't aware of before […]
