Yup irrigation supplier for merritt. I personally like to work with rainbird irrigation systems. They are simple to adjust compared to say nelson. Your input?

Merritt doesn't have any irrigation supply stores? Where do contractors in Merritt get their supplies now? If not, you may be on to something.

I am not a fan of Toro or Nelsen irrigation supplies. I prefer Hunter and Rain Bird. However, a supply house should carry whatever the customer wants.

I would think that opening a supply house would be a very large investment. Have you worked in a supply house?

Does John Deere Landscapes, Ewing, or any of the big chains offer franchises? A franchise could be the way to go, as they already have systems and protocols in place.

hey,
Nope merritt dose not have a irrigation supply. Try looking up Merritt, BC in google that may tell you how big Merritt is. Great place to live though. I think that the home hardware store has rain bird but thats it.

"Livin in the sticks" is a good way to describe here. The way of the future defenatly the internet. Don't even know where to begin on starting a supply house?!

I'm surprised there's no irrigation supply up there considering the agriculture...but I guess their systems are a lot different.

the first question to ask when starting a business is "is there a market"? You would not want to start a lawn care business in an Indian pueblo made of rocks.

However, if you think you can build a market, thats another story.

I have a couple customers that have sprinkler heads that stay up after watering. I have to push them back down so i dont run them over. Is there something i can do to fix them or do they need to be replaced?

Replaced. They usually get little rocks or dirt stuck in them. It is much easier to just twist them out, and twist in some new ones. Dont forget to remove the spray tip after putting them in, so you flush out any dirt. Then screw the spray tip back on, and your good to go.
