    LESLIE: Coming up, we have a call from Rosemarie in Florida who has a sprinkler issue.

    Rosemarie, how can we help you?

    ROSEMARIE: I have a patio, 8×14, outside and it’s painted and I would like to redo it. And the problem is I have a sprinkler head which just wets about a foot of the floor.

    TOM: That’s right. Water and paint don’t mix. Why can’t you just adjust the sprinkler head? All sprinkler heads are adjustable.

    ROSEMARIE: That’s my problem. I live in a townhome …

    TOM: OK.

    ROSEMARIE: … and they’ve tried a couple of times and I’ve never been around …

    TOM: Every sprinkler head is adjustable and you’re just going to have to communicate better with these contractors and let them know exactly what you expect. Put a big sign up: “Don’t let the water hit my patio.” Because that’s the only way you’re going to do this. It’s going to beat the bucket solution, OK Rosemarie?

    ROSEMARIE: Last week when I listened, you talked about Behr concrete floor paint

    TOM: Yes.

    ROSEMARIE: … and then epoxy concrete paint. But I didn’t get the name of the company.

    TOM: I think we were talking about probably EPOXYShield. Rust-Oleum makes a product called EPOXYShield and they actually make a version of that for sidewalks and patios. You should be able to find that in your local Home Depot.

    ROSEMARIE: OK. I appreciate.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
