Finishing Up Remaining Sprinkler Blowouts Requested Before December 5

Their was some good snow melt over the weekend, so it should make it much easier to find valve boxes and for heads to pop up that aren't weighed down with snow.  Not all the heads have to pop up; the air will blow out the water through whichever heads do pop up.  It's just […]

Sprinkler Blowouts To Resume Monday If Weather Permits

This will be my last post until Monday morning. I am giving the snow a chance to melt off some more before I resume sprinkler blowouts. It is hard enough sometimes to find valve boxes under normal conditions when they are not uncovered as our customers have agreed to do when they submitted their request, […]

No Sprinkler Blowouts Today

We managed to get through half of our sprinkler blowout list before the roads within the subdivisions got too difficult and dangerous to drive in.  We were starting to run into problems finding the valve boxes when covered with 3"+ in snow, which really slowed us down.  Even if our customers had their valve boxes […]

Sprinkler Blowouts In Kuna, Caldwell, And Nampa Today

We made our rounds yesterday through the Boise 83709, Meridian 83642, and Star, and actually had some time to get to Kuna and take care of more than half of our current list there. We did run into a few that were quite difficult because some had removed the covers off the valve boxes which […]

Let’s Try This Again, Shall We?

Yesterday's mini snowstorm through off my day, but we should be good for today.  Same route as yesterday with a minor change due to some cancellations.  Because of the snow, I need you to make sure that your valve boxes are uncovered so I can find them.  If you can't find them, I won't be […]

Sprinkler Blowouts In Three Different Zip Codes Today

We actually kicked some sprinkler blowout bootie yesterday considering all the areas we had to cover.  Earlier in the season our sprinkler blowouts are so close together that we rarely drive more than 15-20 miles in a day.  This time of year it can be much more, which is part of the reason our prices […]

Sprinkler Blowouts In Eight Different Zip Codes Today!

Only 58 sprinkler blowouts to go!  Yippee!  Umm, sorry, had to get that off my chest. Yesterday I closed down the entire valley to new requests unless someone really BEGS me to do theirs.  We are at 963, which tops last year's 817, and I am pooped…… I literally fall asleep at my computer every […]

Sprinkler Blowouts In The Meridian 83646 Plus Our New Schedule To Finish Up

I finished all but 5 of the sprinkler blowouts we had in the Boise 83709 on Friday.  One I couldn't do because I couldn't find one of the valve boxes, one because I couldn't get through the gate, (this was my second attempt), and three I just ran out of daylight to reach.  Our customer […]

Another Day In The Boise 83709

Yesterday went okay, but I didn't finish as many blowouts as I needed to do which means I will have to work even harder today.  I ran into a few places where the gates were padlocked again with someone at home, and had to wait what seemed like an eternity for them to unlock the […]
