Warranty

All our work comes with a warranty, and since we’ve been in business for over 25 year, you can be confident that we’ll be around to honor the warranty

The Parts

Whether it’s a sprinkler head or a slab of sod, if the manufacturer will guarantee the product, we will help get it replaced.  Please refer to the manufacturer’s warranty for any details or specifics.  We can direct you to those specifics if needed.

The Labor

Contract work

Our labor warranty is based on the labor costs of fixing or replacing a malfunctioning part and works in conjunction with the manufacturer’s warranty.  The duration of our labor warranty lasts for the duration of the manufacturer warranty OR as stated in your contract, whichever is less.  For example, if the manufacturer provides a one year warranty on a part, and it malfunctions according to its specifications within that year, and we have offered a one year warranty on the labor, we will fix or replace that malfunctioning part free of charge.  If, on the other hand, the manufacturer will give a warranty of five years, and we contracted for one year, and the part fails on the second year, we will replace the product but charge for the labor.  Lastly, if a manufacturer provides a one year warranty and we offer a two year warranty on labor, and the part fails in 18 months, neither the part nor the labor would be covered.

Repair work

All repair work, labor done as parts and material, comes with a standard 90 day warranty.  

Spray Coverage

As part of our sprinkler warranty, we guarantee the spray coverage for the duration of the labor warranty.  This means we backup the layout of our systems.  So, if we discussed getting water to an area, and there is no water getting there, we will fix the problem.  There are some limitations to this warranty.  First, it’s limited by the natural growth of the landscape.  If planting material grows up around a head, blocking the spray, we can’t be held responsible.  Second, it’s based on effective water pressure (in order for spray heads to work, we need a working pressure of at least 30 p.s.i. when we are using a minimum of 10 gallons per minute).  We have no control over source pressure.  Third, it’s limited to access.  If there’s a planter area surrounded by cement, and no sleeve is providing access to it, we might not be able to get water to it.  Lastly, our coverage warranty does not guarantee against dry areas.  Different parts of a yard will dry out faster than others due to more sun, slopes in the yard, soil conditions, etc.  To remedy such issues, simply increase the water time to that particular station, and realize that it’s not .
