Sprinkler System Start-Ups

Memorial Weekend Update 2021

We haven’t been posting much in the last little while because most of the work we have been doing is either start-ups for a property management company or major repairs that we couldn’t put off so we dealt with the customers directly. We are down to our last 52 sprinkler start-ups, with only 16 of […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups For Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Jacob did 8 backflow tests yesterday in Meridian before heading to Nampa for some light repairs and sprinkler start-ups.  He didn’t finish Nampa, so we will have to make another trip after we get to some other areas. My plan today is to do 5 backflow tests in Meridian while Jacob goes to Hidden Springs, […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups For Monday, May 24, 2021

Due to some unforeseen sprinkler issues we had to deal with in Nampa on Friday, and my back issues flaring up again, we didn’t get through Canyon county.  We weren’t expecting to get through the entire county anyway on Friday because we had several stops to make, but was hoping to get further along than […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups 7th Week Recap

I can’t believe I am typing a 7th-week recap.  Last year we were finished with start-ups in 5 weeks, and lawn aerations were complete.  We do have about 150 more start-ups than last year, but it shouldn’t be taking this long.  Not having the help we need really caused a problem.  The only thing we […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups For Friday, May 21, 2021

My wife was released from the hospital yesterday so took the day off from service calls so I could pick her up and take her around to various appointments.  Jacob spent the majority of the day in Eagle and finished up all but one start-up that will need a major repair before it can be […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups For Thursday, May 20, 2021

Yesterday went pretty smooth tying up some loose ends, and getting a few start-ups complete.  We have tied up enough of our semi-emergency jobs that for a time we can concentrate mostly on actual start-ups until a new wave of emergencies come forth.  Most people that turn on their own water have done so by […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups For Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Well, today is the day that I have to be up at the crack of yuck to take my wife down to St. Luke’s in Boise for her spine surgery.  I have to have her down there at 5:30 a.m. and just drop her off.  It would be nice if I could just stay at […]

Sprinkler Start-Ups 6th Week Recap

This problem we and a lot of companies are facing with a worker shortage is ridiculous. I have already turned away over $5,000 worth of work this month, and nearly $10,000 last month in all types of repairs. Painting jobs, plumbing, electrical, sprinkler repairs, fence work, and more have had to be turned away.  Not […]
