If you have ever had to repair the black ¼ inch water lines that are part of the irrigation system of your outdoor landscaping, you know the frustrations associated with making repairs. First you get an enormous water bill or find a pond in your yard. Next, you begin to dig to find the leak which could be many feet from where you see water. What you finally find is usually a seam split or hole caused by a sharp stone, a shovel, and animal or simply poor builder's grade materials. Now that you have found the leak, you have to dig up enough of the line, usually three or more feet long and a foot or more deep, so you can cut out and replace the leaking section. You run out to the hardware store with the cut out piece of line and try to find the correct sized compression coupler and ¼ inch line. Of course you have to buy two couplers, one for each end and much more line than you actually need.
Next you fight with the couplers while trying to fit them on to the existing line and the newly purchased line only to find that the coupler doesn't fit, won't go on, or that you have to dig up more of your yard to get enough of the existing line out of the ground to get a proper angle. You cut the piece of new line to what you think is the right length only to find that it is too short and cannot be connected to the other side or is too long causing you to have to dig up more of your yard, only to have to struggle again with the coupler on the other side. Worse, you find that you cannot remove a coupler that is already attached causing you to have to cut off more of the existing line and make another trip to the hardware store where you just purchased the last two couplers they had in stock. You drive all over town to find another $1 coupler before finally returning to your "easy" project. Hours after you started and now horribly sunburned and stuck with cactus barbs, you turn on the water to check your finished work only to find that either the fix is leaking or that you have stopped the leak but another has cropped up further down the line.
Sound familiar? Well this was a regular occurrence at my house, except for running out to the hardware store since I bought twenty couplers at a time and enough line to replace every line at every house in my subdivision. Finally, when I couldn't locate the latest leak which was somewhere under a huge cactus, I shut my system down and began to search for someone to come out and replace my 12 plus year old system. Fortunately, I found Water Wise Sprinkler Repair after any number of other companies either refused to come out for a quote or failed to show up when they said they would. One company asked me to measure the parameter of my property and then quoted me over the phone without even taking a look at what I needed.
We made an appointment with Rob to come to our home and he said we didn't even have to be there. He showed up exactly when he said he would and then called while he was still there with several options, including just repairing the leaking section. He also informed us that the system we had was vastly undersized and had only one valve and an indoor timer that was being used outdoors. After listening to what Rob explained, we chose to have our entire system replaced. We made a down payment and Rob and his crew showed up exactly when they said they would. Not only did they replace the existing system with one that has three zones, but they ran individual lines to each plant, bush, shrub, and tree on our large lot. They even ran lines under our driveway and sidewalks. They even cleaned up all of the yard waste that we were planning to get to when the temperature dropped, spread 6 tons of rock, and buried deep watering lines for our trees. When they finished, ahead of schedule I might add, we could not even tell they had been here.
Now, about 4 weeks after Rob and his crew finished, they have been back three times to make sure everything is working properly and have added several additional lines for several of our new plantings. Our once dying yard is lush and thriving beyond our hopes.
With all of this in mind, we are excited to highly recommend Water Wise Sprinkler Repair. Rob and his crew have already completed a similar project with the same results for our daughter and we have suggested them to several of our friends and neighbors. While you may find that they are not the lowest bidder, you will certainly get more than you paid for, on time, and with no additional charges or problems. They are simply amazing!Kay K,
I had Robert do a full landscape of my back yard. We originally had Robert recommended to us by a friend for sprinklers only but after meeting with Robert we decided to have the whole yard done. They showed up on time, started on time and finished on time!. His whole crew is very professional and extremely hard working. I have to say there is one phrase I use a lot telling people about Robert and our experience "Above and beyond" we are so happy to have had Robert recommended to us!!! I would highly recommend Robert to anyone!Michelle Fleming,
I had Robert replace my full drip system. He was great with communication and delivered exactly what he promised...faster than I expected. He was faster than the other guys to quote and perform the service...and he brought a better proposal for my bushes and trees. I was confident from start to finish he would get it right.Dan Hartman,
His team showed up on time and knocked out the work in one day. He called me while I was traveling to keep me updated and offered to come back out when I got back to town to go through the work. Usually, I like to be in town when work like this is going on, but I felt comfortable with his reputation and demeanor and he didn't let me down.
After returning from my trip, there were one or two changes to the system I wanted. He came back out the same day I called and made the updates.
He was excellent to work with start to finish. My neighbor recommended him as well and used him to repair work that a "craigslist guy" never got quite right.
Robert is the best. He was referred to me by a very good friend of mine.Bob M., Tempe, AZ
I had the entire sprinkler and drip system replaced.
Robert knows what he’s doing, offers good value, does exactly what he says he will.
I have grass in front and back. Robert suggested sprinkler heads that offered better coverage with less water use. My water bills are down significantly.
He did the work himself (with a helper). After the job was completed he stopped by to make minor coverage adjustments. I didn’t ask him to, he just wanted it to be right.
I’m confident that if I were to have any problems with the work he did he would be out here to fix it as soon as he could.
