Cost of sprinkler system


Hi again...This time I need to find out a rough cost estimate for a sprinkler system. This is for labor only not materials.

How much per foot to dig with no tree roots or rock?
How much per foot to lay and connect the PVC?
How much per riser?
How much per valve?
The antisiphon valve to protect fresh water is already in place from the old system.
How much to install the control box in the garage?

I understand this is all a ballpark figure, but it will give me something to work from.

You have an excellent point. Let's say he is happy with making around $10 per hour as an average wage. What should I expect time wise and throw in some extra for irritation because we know frequently things do not go according to plan.
