Thanks for the workout!

I just want to give a shout out to all my customers who live on hillsides.  Walking up and down the slopes of your yards and driveways to make the 16 trips to my truck for parts has helped me lose 20 pounds.  My friends and family are amazed at the transformation and keep asking me what's my secret.  The secret is there are lots of sprinklers that need to be repaired in hard to reach places.  My workout consists of hiking up and down hills, crawling through bushes, and lots and lots of digging.  I just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to all of you for helping my business become so successful and making me skinny in the process.

Trick for Homeowners Repairing your own Sprinklers

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.
