Irrigation System reviews in Atlanta
I explained I was doing some re-landscaping and that I had an existing system, but that it was old and not working. I was looking for the cost of either repairing what I had or new system.
He was up front with me stating he was busy but promised he would be out in 2 weeks. He came out to my home on May 23rd (after multiple emails asking for a status) - 3-5 weeks later than what he promised (and only since he was going to be in the area).
His bid was very expensive compared to others I received. Also there was no mention of repairing the old system. I emailed asking what I thought to be some polite questions to find out why he proposed what he did. Here is is my note to him:
"Thanks for taking the time to come to my home for a look over and preparing this estimate. I realize your busy with this time of the year. I won't pretend to say i'm happy with a 3K price tag. I will say that price is not within my budget. If I may ask some questions: Why 4 zones? There seems to be two for the front and two for the back. My old system only had 2 (front and back) and worked fine. Granted the old system didn't have the side to deal with (it was cement). Why does each zone have a combination of pop up and spray heads? Can anything be used from the current system - ie the tie in from city water and that box? Any of the pipes in the yard? Is there any way my existing system can be updated at a lower cost? Did this include any, if any, Angies list discounts?"
And here is his response:
"Two different companies have confirmed your existing system is junk. Utilizing anything the previous contractor installed would only lead to future problems. I do not warranty the work of others. The saying goes" you can polish a turd, but it will always be a turd. You can put
I personally think that was quite unprofessional. If he never had the intention of entertaining a repair, he should of stated up front as to reset my expectations.
While fixing the break in one line (by replacing a section), it was discovered that another line lying next to it was not fully glued at a coupling and would be subject to a leak, so the crew replaced that section as well.
The crew also dug out completely the main sprinkler control valve and its attached backflow preventer valve. The main valve was replaced but they were able to salvage the backflow valve.
When complete, they put all the dirt back, replanted the bush that was removed earlier into its original place, and cleaned up landscaping and the adjoining sidewalk.
All was done efficiently and neatly.
