Sprinkler Blowouts

Sprinkler Blowouts For Sunday, November 18, 2018

Even after a few setbacks both of our routes went quite well yesterday.  We were able to finish all that were on our routes.  Today will be our final day in the 83709 and 83642 until the end of our season when we make our final sweep through the valley picking up stragglers.  Any requests […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Saturday, November 17, 2018

Interesting story from yesterday…… I was hooking up my hose to a backflow preventer near the street when a man in his mid-fifties stopped by while walking his dog.  He told me that I shouldn’t be doing this blowout because the temperature has been below freezing  every night for several nights and the system was […]

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 […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Saturday, November 10, 2018

Ground temperature this morning: 44 degrees. For the first time in a VERY long time we didn’t have a daily post.  Our Internet was down, so not only was I not able to post an update, I couldn’t route our rigs, or even contact our customers to let them know we were coming yesterday.  On […]

Sprinkler Blowouts For Thursday, November 8, 2018

We cleaned up about 45 sprinkler blowouts in the Meridian 83646 yesterday.  That leaves us about 30 to go, which I would hope that we can do in a day.  I say this because Justin will be working in Eagle, and I will be splitting my time between the Meridian 83646 and Eagle, and Jesse […]
