The Property Care Guys specialize in design and installation of quality Reticulation systems for new and established properties around Perth.
PCG design and install all types of watering systems including waterwise pop-up heads for lawns or mechanical drives, running of the mains or bore. An in-ground battery operated reticulation control system may be a low cost solution for a small yard as it saves the hassle of running wires or removing paving or concrete etc and run for two years before needing to replace the batteries, which only takes a minute. On the other hand, a fully automated 240 volt remote-controlled reticulation system may be better suited for a larger property.
Over the years we have learned that much of the unsuspecting public will get a few quotes from different reticulation companies or worse still a handyman or neighbour (sorry mate!) and simply go with the cheapest install price. We believe this is a huge mistake which actually often costs the customer much more than even their most expensive quote within just a few years. Typically, the cheap company will use the lowest cost materials they can find and take as many short cuts as possible, just to get the job done quickly and be paid. Sure, the system works great for a few weeks or months.. but then problems arise. The lower quality poly pipe installed under paving, the joins not glued right, the twisted wiring, the $2 sprinklers… in the wrong places… entire stations running both the lawn and the garden to save more money, cheap controllers.. all start falling apart. After a couple of repair visits, the customer will have spent as much on repairs as they would have on a better system to start with. Not only that, the entire lot often has to be replaced.. maybe even their lawn too. On another note, they always use couch grass as it is the cheapest roll-on-lawn
Quality Is Crucial
We have seen so many cheaply done irrigation jobs fail so quickly we just can’t honestly treat customers like this and run with the money. We believe it is best for business to install something which costs us more, is long lasting and reliable and be proud of the job done and hopefully be of assistance for the long term. We tend to use a combination of the latest materials and what is most suited for the job to create a system which should give you not a few months, but at least 10-20 years of good use with minimal repairs. What’s more, we don’t even charge a huge amount for a quality install. We also assist by also offering our regular maintenance service.
If you’d like a new sprinkler reticulation system installed to a residential or commercial property just fill out the online booking form or give us a call and we will provide you with an estimate within 3 days and usually have your new retic complete within 2 weeks. After the job is complete and paid for we even provide a free service to tweak anything following the installation.
