This will be our last sprinkler blowout post at least until Monday or Tuesday as we update the progress on the needed repairs. We have completed all our sprinkler blowouts for this season except for a handful that need repaired before they can be blown out, or ones that have backflows or filters on the […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Friday, December 7, 2018

All things considered, we didn’t have too bad of a day today.  We actually finished 12 that we could actually do.  We have some that had backflow preventers frozen solid because they weren’t drained, or not drained properly.  A few of these requests came in the last week of November or December 1, so they […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Thursday, December 6, 2018

UPDATE 10:00 AM: Although underground piping is still safe at this point from a freeze, (tested at 38 degrees yesterday evening in Meridian), our machines do not handle well in these very cold temperatures.  Condensate in our air hoses freeze nearly immediately which doesn’t allow air through the hose an into your system.  That being […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Two interesting things happened yesterday.  First, I went to do a sprinkler blowout at a home that the customer said it had already been blown out by a company that left a flyer on the door with a notice they would do it for a $30 check or $25 cash.  She left the cash, which […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Monday, December 3, 2018

Except for the hiccup this morning with the snow, sprinkler blowouts actually went quite well yesterday.  The ground is still warm enough that most of the snow melted off where we could find the valve boxes fairly easily.  Even with the melting snow penetrating the ground, I got higher than expected temperature readings yesterday.  One […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Sunday, December 2, 2018

UPDATE: We are heading out on our scheduled route.  It will be slow going, so we will definitely not finish the route today, but will pick up where we left off tomorrow.  PLEASE make sure gates are accessible, and valve boxes are uncovered so we can find them quickly, or if you don’t know where […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Saturday, December 1, 2018

Speaking of December, Today new requests for sprinkler blowouts go up to $50 for up to 6 zones.  I was planning on taking down our form at […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Friday, November 30, 2018

Jesse finished up our current list in the 83702 and 83706 yesterday except for one he couldn’t get to because of a dog, and one with a locked gate.  This is twice we have run into a locked gate on Spinnaker.  One more time and they get a trip charge and we are done with […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Thursday, November 29, 2018

Jesse and I made big dents in the 83702 and 83706 yesterday.  Enough that Jesse should be able to handle the remainder of the blowouts in both zip codes on his own as long as he doesn’t run into a lot of system issues.  Valve boxes that aren’t brushed off of leaves, bark, and rock, […]
