I don't know, the sprinkler fitters around here are the highest paid guys on the job. Those guys make good money trashing ceiling tiles and glueing orange pipe.
11,000 SF!85 heads in 1 house.
Holy Mother of Mary.
What's with the glycol? Are you guys not doing combo's?
They're way cheaper, and no maintenance required. :thumbsup:
I’m not sure how that has anything to do with itDo you have plumbing license .
Just costs of doing business :thumbsup:Checkout what the liability insurance will be.
A little technical for this topic, but I’ll stay with this diversion – for the sake of learning. How would this prevent the system from freezing? This particular house is also on a well – not sure why I would want/need to run softened and filtered water thought the system.Combination system: Domestic water and fire-sprinkler on one feed. End of fire-sprinkler usually routes to toilet, so everytime the WC is flushed, it purges the system. No backflow prevention required, either. :thumbsup:
I understand why you bring it up. But it’s an obstacle that is easily overcome. I’m more questioning why others have not seen the opportunity or is there a reason why I would not want to pursue what seems like an opportunity to me.If you want to have a sprinkler buiness here you must be licensed plumber. That's why I asked you . Your talking about start up .
I can see that happening, but I think I’d be willing to send someone out to investigate, tell them it’s not the sprinkler head that’s leaking and give them a bill for $200.I think that the main reason why sprinkler guys don't want to mess with residential houses is because of the frivolous and unnecessary callbacks. Any time there is a roof leak or if a toilet overflows, the HO thinks that there is a problem with the sprinkler.
The drywall gap around the sprinkler head is the path of least resistance so when people see water dripping from the head, naturally they call the sprinkler guy to fix it when there is nothing wrong.
I would think that an 11,000 sf house doesn't have a "residential" sprinkler system, but a regular old PVC or iron-pipe system like commercial work or multi-family
All orange pipe in this place.Not so.. I find that these McMansions have the same stuff as the 1000 sq. ft. split foyer homes. They are just bigger.
I don't know what licensing laws are in place where you are, so all I can speak for is California.I understand why you bring it up. But it’s an obstacle that is easily overcome. I’m more questioning why others have not seen the opportunity or is there a reason why I would not want to pursue what seems like an opportunity to me.
That sounds like a multi-family type system that are commonly installed by commercial and industrial sprinkler contractors. It probably requires more than a plumbing license to work on that system.All orange pipe in this place.
