Before I began Burbank Sprinkler I was a homeowner who attempted to repair my own sprinklers. My take on this is that it is a two person task. One person to stay and try and get some digging done and another to make the 16 trips to the home improvement store for additional parts.
I don't know why each attempt to do home repair of sprinklers requires so many trips, but I know that it does. One of the benefits of starting Burbank Sprinkler is now I have hundreds of sprinkler parts in my truck. Even for me supplying Burbank Sprinkler requires a daily review of the work planned and the parts required. I have not yet mastered the less-than-one-trip-a-day to my supplier, but it is a goal I am working on.
Home repair of sprinklers is definitely something most do-it-yourself people can master. Anyone who doesn't want to spend the day going back and forth from the store - just give me a call.
