Today the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repair in Yangebup, North of Rockingham
The system had s a 7 Station Irritrol Kwik Dial control box and needed programming for the summer. I went through the different sprinkler sections of lawn adjusting the Hunter PGP popups for full lawn coverage and replaced one. These I really love as they rarely get blocked up.. pretty much block proof. Only one out of 20 or more needed replacing in a whole year. Station 5 was stuck on however so I had to locate the solenoid valve electro-magnetically. It was deep underground. An old Rainbird valve was found to be seized up and an adjacent pipe was leaking. A few PVC fittings, and a new Toro valve later and couple of risers and spray heads and the system was completely refurbished for the season

Today the Property Care Guys did Reticulation in Rockingham, South of Perth, North of Mandurah!
Our technician Matt who covers most of the southern suburbs went out to check on a sprinkler control box reportedly not coming on automatically during this now ending season. Today June 31st is the last day residents are allowed to have their retic turned on. The customer wanted it fixed so as not to have to worry about it come 1st September.
The reticulation controller was tested as putting out power but most of the buttons were completely worn out and would only work on manual setting. He replaced the unit with a outdoor 6 station Rainbird ESP-Me. These are one of our preferred models as there have been virtually no call backs compared to the older models. Ok, new control box in, sprinkler test — station 1 working.. NOTHING happening on station 2. The wiring appeared to be running full current so the solenoid valve for the lawn area was located and tested separately –stuck solenoid pin. Matt replaced the faulty one with a whole new solenoid, quite a quick fix once diagnosed. All garden stations were good just a couple of micro risers had popped off and were replaced and a hunter popup needed a new head. No leaking pipes and good water pressure all-round.

Yesterday the Property Care Guys completed Reticulation in Safety Bay, south of Rockingham
Matt was called out to a residential property to do some sprinkler system repairs and modifications. The customer needed some Retic installed to a new garden bed for trees and pots and multiple sprinkler mods for the lawn areas. The wife wanted some extensions to old beds for more plants etc etc. Many of the popups were now too low and grass was stopping the sprayers. We use poly lawn risers and extension couplings on these and any sprinklers blocked or broken were either cleaned out or replaced with new Toro ones. The neighbour was tapped into their system so we capped that off (customer said it was ok to!) We replaced 3 issues with PVC joins cracked or not glued right. The control box had no weatherproof cover but had been working fine for years so we shall leave that until it no longer works!
Please call, text, email or online book for all irrigation work from up North at Butler down South to Mandurah! And try our Quarterly full system reticulation maintenance deal, commercial $120 or residential just $88 + parts and GST.

Last week the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repair in Wannanup, near Mandurah
Dianne phoned up saying some pipes were leaking in her retic system at the front and also at the back. She stated her water bill was over $700 ! Myself (Matt) headed down as I cover all the areas half hour South of Perth and beyond. The first job was a broken 25mm PVC pipe someone had stuck a garden fork through. The rear job was a little more technical junction of 20mm and 25mm. Interestingly, it looked like rats had chewed through the pipe. But leaking pipes are not going to cause such a water bill in excess of $700. So I then checked the water meter and it was not ticking over at all. That means either the pool was leaking and being filled up far more than usual, or the automatic reticulation timer was improperly programmed or malfunctioning. It was the former – The control box was coming on for like 17 hours a week!! That plus having a pool would add up to such usage. Reprogrammed. Job complete.

Yesterday the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repair in Secret Harbour, South of Rockingham
My customer Joel called stating the sprinklers on station 1 were not coming on for more than a few seconds at a time. This can be either a faulty control box, a bore pump relay or pump, but most likely an issue with a solenoid valve. Arriving on site I tested the box – seemed ok. He had no idea where the valves were so I used the electro-magnetic equipment in the area I guessed they were likely to be installed and there they were. Great! Upon testing number 1 station directly it was found the Irritrol solenoid (valve actuator) was faulty and was replaced. A very smooth job. The customer was happy to maintain his own sprinklers. Another successful reticulation repair.
We cover all areas North to Butler and South including around Mandurah. We also now offer a quarterly maintenance schedule at just $120

Today the Property Care Guys overhauled Reticulation in Greenfields, near Mandurah
Customer called to ask us to fix his reticulation system because it doesn’t work anymore. Typically this is a failed master solenoid valve, faulty control box or a wiring issue. On arriving Matt checked the controller.. it wasn’t plugged in. Easy! Nah, connected it and tried the stations. All solenoids working. Cool. But barely any sprinklers worked. Ok biggish kinda job. 15 jammed shut popups located under grass and replaced. One or two could not even be found so new ones were added to these areas. Better than digging up 20 metres of lawn right? They can be simply blocked off if ever found.
We installed a couple of mp Rotors by Hunter to cover a wide area with no sprinklers which saved the customer money. A split PVC excavated and replaced with a slip-fix and a heap of micro sprays, octo spectrum stakes for many plant pots installed and the control center programmed! Next to install a new station to a garden and lawn with no existing retic! A complete overhaul.
Contact us for any kind of irrigation work. We also specialise in finding lost buried solenoid valves, installation of lawn

Today Matt of the Property Care Guys did Reticulation in Byford, South of Perth
Another very simple reticulation repair job where a popup sprinkler had been run over by a mower or lawn edger, catching on the top, resulting in a broken riser underneath. The solution to this is to deter your gardener by installing concrete sprinkler surrounds along the side of driveways and in the gardens next to lawns or around sprinklers which are too high and could get mown over. We replace the popups, install the surround nicely compacted in (or it can sink and become useless!) and test run the station.
We now do repairs in the far southern rural suburbs so give us a call

Today Matt from the Property Care Guys did Reticulation in Mundijong, South of Perth
Our customer had somehow destroyed her sprinkler which was on an articulated riser and needed repair. These are adjustable so you are able to raise and lower and position the popup to wherever you like which helps with installing lawns and also in the future as your garden moves about. A small job requiring some digging and a threaded poly joiner you can find at Bunnings. But no job is too small, even in most rural areas. Get in touch with PCG for pipe repair, wiring issues, control box problems and lost solenoid valves.
