We are working hard to get to everyone as quickly as we can for sprinkler start-ups, backflow tests, lawn aeration, window screens, and more! We have really been hoping for some rain this month to keep the yards looking good while we are scrambling to reach everyone.
Currently, we have around 150 start-ups to take care of, about 40 backflow tests, and around 50 lawn aerations to do. Top it off with FIVE major leaks from main & drain valves that have to be dug up that are leaking horribly. The major leaks have thrown us horribly off schedule. Jesse took care of one on Monday, he will be digging up another on Wednesday, and another on Friday, and yet another next Tuesday, alternating days with sprinkler start-ups.
Jacob got 13 start-ups completed on Tuesday, while I got about 10 backflow tests completed. Jesse finished up a sprinkler main leak he started on Monday, and then went out and took care of about 5 start-ups. Although we get only get about 10% of the start-ups that we do sprinkler blowouts, some start-ups take longer than a blowout since with many of our customers we have to check through all the zones and make adjustments. Any minor repairs are scheduled for later after we get a handle on the start-ups. Major repairs with flooding, for example, are done as soon as possible
Thursday morning I have to finish up painting a bathroom and then in the afternoon Jacob and I will make a run through meridian for lawn aeration. Jacob will likely do some start-ups in the morning while I finish the painting. 14 of our current lawn aerations are in Meridian, and we hope to get through at least half of them in the afternoon.
That’s it for now. Make sure you set up to get a notification for our posts!
