Now the following little ditty is all in fun, so don’t get your knickers twisted.  Just points out what we have to deal with nearly on a daily basis.  🙂 Turns out I have a lot of faults.  Who knew?  Here are some of them: Customer puts wrong zip code on form and gets missed […]

You know that sucking sound you hear when you step in mud and sink a bit and then pull your foot out?  That same sound describes my day yesterday………. I had 16 blowouts on my route yesterday, figuring they would go quickly since most were pretty close together, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.  […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Monday, November 19, 2018

Interesting story: We have been sending “Sprinkler Blowout Complete” notices to our customers by text once the job is done along with a picture showing the blowout in progress in the front to prove we were there.  A customer who just moved here from another country texted me, “Did you blow up my backyard too?”  […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Friday, November 16, 2018

Yesterday I had Justin working in the 83642 and Jesse in the 83709.  They made a pretty good dent in the areas, which makes it much more manageable now.  There were a few they couldn’t get to because of either  locked gates on Fallingbranch, or a German Shepherd on Mastiff that didn’t want Justin in […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Thursday, November 15, 2018

I have no idea how we pulled it off, but we managed to get to everyone on our route yesterday in the 83709 and 83642.  There were a few we couldn’t do because of either not being able to find the valve boxes, or running into a locked gate.  There was a property on my […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Wednesday, November 14, 2018

We have already completed 80 more sprinkler blowouts than we did all last season, and we still have 2-3 weeks or so of blowouts to go depending on new requests and cancellations.  This will be another record-breaking year for sprinkler blowouts.  I hope to have two more machines by next season, so we will probably […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Someone wrote me a very long but detailed email yesterday on some ways I can improve our automated system, and found most if not all to my liking.  I will slowly get them implemented as time permits.  Not much time during the season to do it because I am lucky to get 3 hours of […]
