Reticulation Repair in Waikiki

Today Matt from the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repair in Waikiki, Safety bay near Rockingham

A submersible bore system low on pressure. The bore pump seemed fine (we repair these)  The issues were numerous: Many popup sprinklers old and leaking and two underground pipes leaking. One was caused by large tree roots growing along the pipe, bending it till it broke the join. We cut away some and diverted around the main root and replaced the sprinkler and most of the others. The controller was set to 3 days per week. Bore systems are allowed 3 days and mains systems only two.

Reticulation in High Wycombe

Today the Property Care Guys did Reticulation in High Wycombe, North East of Perth

A very common issue we get all the time and are very good at – Finding and Repair of a retic station. Rarely the controller box has a faulty output and can be rectified by simply using another station but the issue is usually bigger and requires either replacement of the control unit, a solenoid valve or the solenoid itself, or a wiring issue. Sometimes it is the diaphragm which has split, full of gunk or a rusted stem found within the valve. We recommend quarterly or half-yearly maintenance to avoid urgent call outs.

Reticulation in Henley Brook

Today the Property Care Guys serviced Reticulation in Henley Brook, North East of Perth

A large 4 acre property required maintenance on all stations. We replaced all the sprinkler heads, located and replaced leaking solenoids and made sure all popups were covering all lawn and garden areas. Station 1 was not coming on so we found and fixed the valve for that area with our special equipment!

Pop up sprinklers were being kicked off by pedestrians and kids on skateboards. They were installed too high so we replaced them and also lowered the risers. Other lawn spray heads were corrected and sprinklers adjusted in the gardens. A faulty solenoid valve was also located and replaced. (One of our specialties)

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 Repair in Port Kennedy

Yesterday the Property Care Guys did Reticulation Repair 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!
