Re: Sprinkler systems too much trouble?
In freezing zones, it's important to properly winterize the system...
If it's winterized properly in the fall, no need to do anything but turn the water on, and plug the controller back in, in the spring.
I have no idea what costs would be in your area, but $150 is about double what I'd pay to get my lines blown out in the fall (they use a large air compressor to blow water out of the lines...) and no start-up in the spring, I open the supply valve and plug in the controller myself...
