How did you get started in irrigation?
When people in Colvile found out Chris knew how to install sprinklers with an eye for details, He had people calling him to install systems, so he said to Ranae, "If I am going to do this, I am going to do it right." So he hired a local lawyer to file the proper paperwork, an accountant to do the taxes and the rest is history. There is plenty of work for someone who will show up on time, do the work for a reasonable fee, get out quickly, and stand behind his work.

What is your work crew like?
Long Irrigation hires teachers to work in the summer. I have a crew that I use every year along with some who drop in on a need to work basis. Every person working in your yard has cleared drug tests, had ethics training, has a masters degree, and raises their family locally. Not many companies can make that claim.

Being teachers, how do you get the work done?
Long Irrigation is not about quantity, it is about quality. We do between 8 - 15 installations a year. The bulk of the work is done between June and September, but not limited to that time frame. We install on the weekends for the person that really must have it done early, and we install during spring break. All other work (spring start-up, repairs and winterizing) is done by the owner, Chris, after school hours or on the weekend.
