We have a 4 zone sprinkler system on about 1/3 acre that had originally been installed probably about 30 years ago by the previous owner. When we moved in we spent about $1000 upgrading the control panel and all the heads - about 7 years ago. Everything seemed okay but this year the system would not come on. The manifold valves would not open with the signal from the panel and they seemed to be leaking when put on manually. There had been a number of very hot days and no rain. The grass was looking pretty poor. Cali-Green was working in the neighbourhood since we could see a number of their signs. We called the number and I spoke to Serge. This was the Saturday before Father's day. He said he would drop in to look at it later that afternoon. After taking a look he said that he normally does not repair sprinklers but generally installs new systems. Since we had refurbished the system, I was not ready to do that. He told us that the manifold valves are about $150 each x 4 plus installation. It would be $1000 plus tax. After he left, we talked about it and texted Serge that we were okay with going forward and could he fit us in soon. Amazingly he said he would come the next day - Sunday - Father's day! They spent about 3 hours and got most of the job done digging, replacing and rewiring. They left just before 3 and Serge said he would be back the next evening to finish the connections and show us how the system works. He came by the following evening. He had a bit of frustration with a rain sensor that we had installed previously that seemed to be causing a problem. In the end the system works great and the grass is looking better already. Thanks Serge and crew for your diligence and taking time away from your families on Father's Day!
