It’s a fact: schools, sporting fields, private farms, public gardens, and other domestic and commercial properties rely on high-quality, effective irrigation systems to keep their grass and greenery looking its best. The thing is, like most landscaping equipment, irrigation systems require repair and maintenance every now and again.
But what should you look for in an irrigation repair service, and where can you find the best in Canberra? Read on to find out.
What makes a great irrigation supplier or repairer?
When choosing an irrigation specialist, we recommend keeping the following traits in mind:
- Prompt service. Whether there’s a leak wasting water, or your irrigation system has stopped working completely, you (and your lush, green lawns!) need a top-quality service as soon as possible. The best in the business understand this and are willing to go above and beyond to deliver a fast repair service.
- Quality parts and products. While using cheaper parts will save money in the short term, they generally don’t last as long and will need to be replaced sooner. For longevity and real value for money, look for an irrigation installer that uses the best parts or products for the job – not the one that costs the least.
- Long-lasting workmanship. A properly installed or serviced irrigation system stands the test of time – it holds up against daily wear and tear. Read reviews or ask for customer testimonials to confirm that their work will be completed to a high standard.
- Value for money. Do your research before choosing an irrigation repair service. While cheaper isn’t always better, you want to make sure that the pricing is competitive.
- Effective communication. You shouldn’t need a plumbing or horticulture qualification to understand what your irrigation technician is talking about. A great technician is willing to discuss the job at a level you can understand.
