MP Rotators Win Job on More than Just Water Savings

The savings involved when using the Hunter MP Rotator go far beyond water. MP Rotators also save money in the form of materials and labor, which any contractor knows, can make or break a bids acceptance. The following is a comparison of bids showing the savings between a traditional spray system design and a design that utilizes MP Rotators.

The Challenge

One job site had two separate bids submitted from a single landscape contractor. The first design utilized traditional spray nozzles, and the second design featured a system based on Hunter's MP Rotators. All materials and cost of labor were included in both bids.

The Solution

When taking into account all site aspects, the total bid on the traditional nozzle system was over $4,000. Irrigating the same landscaped area with an MP Rotator design came in 45% less, with a total cost of just $2,226.90.

The Result

The main reason the MP design saved the customer so much money is because it uses far less materials and requires far less labor to install. The MP Rotator system required half the valves, 90% less mainline, and consumes half the amount of stations compared to the traditional spray system. The overall savings when designing with the MP Rotator prove that the benefits of this revolutionary innovation go far beyond conserving water.
