Reticulation Overhaul in Maddington

This week the Property Care Guys did a Reticulation Overhaul in Maddington, South West of Perth

Another reticulation system requiring a lot of work, almost a whole new system. The solenoid valves were shot, the mainline was old poly pipe with splits and breaks through rose gardens and the control box needed replacing! We installed a State-of-the art Wireless Hunter Pro-HC Wifi controller to automate the retic. (We have a good deal on these right now so grab yourself a bargain) We ran new waterproof cable across the house to new solenoids. Replaced the old poly mainline with 25mm PVC pressure pipe made in Australia. We are returning to do the sprinkler repair work which is always last as it is downstream. Same with our reticulation installations.

$350 DISCOUNT PROMO! Contact us to have your old control box replaced with a new Hunter Wifi one. We can even install a special meter which is like a water meter and monitors your whole system for any issues, which can then send a notification to your phone, or even directly to us! Highly recommended waterwise solution right now. Just mention “Luke” and we will send him out. You can view the meter in the picture on this page

Reticulation in Port Kennedy

Yesterday the Property Care Guys did Reticulation in Port Kennedy, South West of Perth


Possibly the largest furniture store in Perth, Dankz Furniture, (very fine collection on sale) had us out to do some retic repairs.

After clicking through the stations and walking around, a big day’s work was apparent. Every single commercial gear drive pop-up sprinkler had issues. After trying to clean and adjust the K-Rain ones which proved impossible (because of how old and un-maintained they were – the brand is OK), it was decided to replace them all. We had to cut away tree roots wrapped around some with a reciprocating saw and others were jammed under gravel and concrete edges. The sprinkler we installed were Hunter PGP. They have a rubber seal preventing debris. We also lowered some which appeared the previous popups were a bit high for the lawn mower. We installed concrete surrounds on several, as semi-trailer trucks had been parking right on top of them causing issues with the owners. Hopefully we have prevented that! And plastic ones around the rest. We then spent a few hours replacing the ones next door, the property also owned by them.



The Real Estate sent a job order for “System not working correctly” Quite vague, though, usually our vehicles are equipped to handle anything on the first visit. There was water spouting out of the front lawn everywhere and loked like a huge job. But all it needed was all new popup sprinklers. They were worn out or broken off. Broken off by lawn mowers and kids on bicycles. I installed new Toro popups but at a lower height than before to prevent this in future. The back yard was similar, except full of chickens and Rabbits. lol. Programming was wrong so I fixed that to water corps rules. A total system overhaul in good time, just 3 hours.

Reticulation and Lawn in Yanchep

Good morning everyone!

Yesterday The Property Care Guys completed Reticulation and Lawn in Yanchep

What a great week it has been. Two of our team members got to go up to the beautiful township of Yanchep (50km North of Perth) to install some Soft Leaf Buffalo roll-on turf and an automated reticulation system to a lovely property. With a couple of delays along the way with our customer only being available on rare occasions, our two boys got up and completed in one day. Well done! We snapped some progress photos to share of the work completed and what a improvement it is!!! The grass rolls were freshly cut in the morning. PVC pressure pipe and pop-up sprinklers were used.

So Remember, we cover up to Yanchep and down to Mandurah for installations, retic repairs and landscaping!

Bore System Repair in Rockingham

Had the team attend to the beautiful Point Peron Youth and Family Aquatic Centre in Rockingham
(YES! we’re servicing from Yanchep to Rockingham!)

The system which is being relied upon for house water and Reticulation to over 50 small holiday beach cabins was sourcing water from an underground bore system with a Mains water source as backup and flushing. The issue that PCG was called in to resolve was there was no mains water filling into the tank when the bore pumps are off, Resulting in no water for the entire property!

Our PCG team member Matt was able to locate a solenoid Valve that had seen better days, which was promptly removed and replaced with a stronger more reliable solenoid with a nice Warranty just for good measure. The valve was tested as working properly. BUT! It did not solve the main issue. Our Electrician Paul was called out who also found a faulty relay and mini contact which were replaced with new components. We then took a bore water sample and had it lab-tested for potability, hardness, metals, e-coli and other contaminants in which the results came back as OK to drink! Bore water testing is recommended once per year.

We now we have a happy clients who will continue to have water for their homes, amazingly lush gardens and lawn no mater what the weather! Contact us for all reticulation and Bore repairs in the Rockingham area!

Garden Maintenance in Ellenbrook

Well the team got to go to the beautiful town of Ellenbrook right in the heart of the Swan Valley Wine country, With a emergency call out from a lovely young couple who were having a surprise pop in visit form the Parents and wanted their garden spruced up to look the art for mum and dad.

Our Amazing gardener Chloe attended and got to go through a few ideas with the owners regarding weeding, tidy up and mulch types best suited for the property, Once all approved, Chloe was able to have the job started and completed the next day, Just in time for the parents to arrive.

To say we have a happy & relived couple was definitely an understatement and even received good feed back from the Parents.
So remember the Property Care Guys is happy to assist with urgent call outs on reticulation, bores and Gardening! We also do regular maintenance in these areas.

Commercial Reticulation Repair Perth

This week the Property Care Guys did Commercial Reticulation Repair in Balcatta, North of Perth

Fuji Film Balcatta. Not the first time we have repaired their system. We wonder who installed it as it was not done properly in the first place. Poly pipe not PVC everywhere under pavement. When we install a system we will never lay poly under paving as it will fail eventually no matter what. When a PVC pipe could last literally 100 years if buried 300mm deep. These old systems really need redoing properly. Though for now we replaced the poly with a more hardy Australian made pipe which will easily outlast the rest of the system…

Contact us for a proper retic repair job ! We do maintenance on bore pumps, pool pumps and replacements too.

New Bore Pump in Dalkeith

Today the Property Care Guys installed a New Bore Pump in Dalkeith

How do I fix it when the popup sprinkers are not working around my property? My lawn is all patchy!  First thing’s first. Would all the sprinklers fail at once? Unlikely. So the issue is upstream towards the water source. There could be issues with solenoid valves, manual valves, a submersible or centrifugal pump, controller box, wiring, mains water supply, AC power or tree roots. This one happened to be the bore pump itself. Our Technician had our Electrician run some tests before deciding to replace it. Along with the pump start mini contactor, followed by a full system test of all stations the bore had to be pulled up, checked and a new pump installed.

We offer a 6 month guarantee on our work even on second hand systems!

*** We also offer a discount just for reviewing our work, or referring us to others ***


Reticulation Repairs in Baldivis

Last week the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repairs in Baldivis, South of Perth

A job to simply reprogram the central control box. Matt went out and tested each station. Immediately apparent was it needing new sprinklers here and there so we removed, flushed and added an mp rotator or two and some standard toro and rainbird heads, straightened up some micro risers and new heads which had been somehow ran over and crushed in a garden all along the fence (with plenty of room to drive on the paving!?) then set the control box.

This was faulty. A Hunter X-core which we used to like but have found too many issues with lately so we now use the NEW Rainbird ESP-Me usually. The issue was the down button not working which wouldn’t allow to program automatic program properly. I quoted a new controller but they were quite happy to run the system with the simple press of a button every few days or so
