Sprinkler blowouts in Boise today were a little rough. I had two properties I spent a considerable amount of time on but couldn't do the blowout because of system issues. One of these was due to a main line that was "fixed" by the irrigation company, but not done correctly. I think I have an idea on how to blow out this system, which I will attempt my next time to the area.
I will be working in Meridian on Wednesday, and hope to make a very large dent in my Meridian list. There are only 17 sprinkler blowouts left in Meridian, so should be able to finish 3/4 of these sprinkler blowouts on Wednesday, and then finish the remainder on Friday. If all goes well, I will finish the four remaining sprinkler blowouts in Garden City on Friday. All four from Garden City were not done the last time I was there because of either not being able to find valve boxes, main lines, or locked gates and dogs.
I have 11 sprinkler blowouts left in Boise, and hope to finish them all on Saturday. Much depends on customers paying attention to this blog and making sure I have access to what I need.
