Choosing an Irrigation Contractor

The components of your new landscape irrigation system will be buried-out of sight.  Once installed, your new system essentially becomes a permanent fixture of your home.

The experience of the contractor you select to design and install your new irrigation system is crucial in determining the efficiency and long-term reliability of the system.


A Comprehensive Design

In order to engineer a new landscape irrigation system properly, expect the contractor you select, to collect detailed information regarding your property, including:

  • •    Soil type
  • •    Plants, existing and proposed
  • •    Water source, flow rates and pressure
  • •    Landscape contours
  • •    Shade/sun exposure


Contractor Quality Parts

Most manufacturers of lawn sprinkler equipment have two different grades:

1.    Parts for sale by discount stores for installation by the homeowner.  These are designed to be priced competitive, inexpensive, disposable parts.
2.    Contractor quality components that are designed to withstand the rigors of severe environments.  These materials will provide many years of dependable service.


A Professional Contractor

Professional contractors have made a commitment to the enhancement of the irrigation industry.  These contractors understand that you are one of their most valuable assets and will do a great deal to ensure your satisfaction.

When choosing a contractor, be wary of those who offer to charge you significantly less than others.  “Low Bidders” may not be insured and often use cost-cutting techniques that will affect the long-term integrity of your system.


Warranty and Maintenance Services

The promised warranty is ultimately only as good as the firm behind it.  Expect the contractor you select, to provide a written warranty before you buy.
