Ask RiotACT: Watering system / irrigation setup

Hi Rioters.

I purchased a house about 6 months ago. It has large established gardens. There was an existing watering system and a large underwater tank. I had a plumber come around and put in a new pump (that can switch between tank and mains) and get everything ready for connection into the piping. I now need to get someone to connect everything up. The existing piping has some issues and I suspect most of it will need to be replaced. I did get a recommendation from a friend for a large irrigation company in Canberra. I had a terrible experience with them. They came around after waiting almost 8 weeks. I then didn’t hear anything back despite chasing them. I received a bill 8 weeks after they looked at the system. At no stage did they say they would charge for someone having a look in order to provide a quote. Needless to say I will not be using them.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Sounds to me your drama is with the plumber, not the irrigation people. Chris at EzyRain and Juan at Waterland are both industry experts and should be able to help out. Both are in Fyshwick.
