APRIL 2020

COVID-19 has certainly touched all our lives. It has altered our daily activities and created some additional challenges. We are checking in on each other almost daily. We are discussing how we can best be of service to you and your club's needs in the days and weeks to come. 

Curbside pickup is the new norm at all of our locations. The team is getting pretty good at it, should you need it. Just call, email, or text what you need and where you would like to pick it up and our team will have it ready. Call or text when you arrive and someone from our team, in a safe manner, will bring it out to you.

Truck deliveries continue, but only if you are comfortable with our drivers bringing the to your facility. 

UPS and Fed Ex package deliveries continue, but you need to make sure your local driver knows you are still open for maintenance even though the club is closed. Otherwise the driver may assume he or she can't make the delivery.

Golf Irrigation service continues. The team is still making service calls in a safe, physical distancing way. They are busy with the normal spring start-up activities so if you need them, call or text them so they can get you on the schedules.

Golf Territory Managers are available by phone, email, or video conference to help you with your questions and facilitate getting you any materials you might need. If you've been putting off getting a design, or a quote completed for any upcoming projects, now would be a good time to reach out and get the conversation started!

All that said, stay physically distanced, stay protected, and stay safe. We are doing our best to be here for you when you need us.


Just a friendly reminder as you turn your system on: we have a board exchange program. You may not be aware of this but the best research we can find shows our prices are the lowest of all other nationally advertised program prices.  The price includes a return shipping label and the paperwork so the failed board can be dropped in the box and returned to our facility.  If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, call one of our service technicians to arrange a site visit and we will take care of it for you!  Click here for the board exchange forms.  They are also on our website and another link with additional resources are at the bottom of this document.

Make sure you have a few of the 995-102 Riser Hold Up Tools in stock to "snap on" to sprinklers in areas where you may have a lot of water hammer as the system fills. This tool allows for a high volume of water and air to be evacuated from the system quickly and eliminates the need for removing ANY conversion assemblies from the bodies during system start-up. For more information, watch the video below.
