Default Irrigation Repair

I need recommendations on irrigation repair from a trustworthy, reliable company and prefer not to have Massey. Got the dreaded call from the Villages Water and our usage was high and they sent a tech out and used 2000 gallon in 24 hour period and the irrigation is set to run in that time frame. Not there so can't check it out ourselves. Thanks in advance

Ya think--he usually gets to a job in a day or two--we're having rain so it may back him up

Here's what happened to me. I got a letter from the water department that I am using way to much irrigation water. More than 30,360 gallons in one month. I shut off the irrigation water and paid the bill.

A couple of weeks later someone from the water people called me and said it was a mistake and they credited my account. I noticed that someone from the water department replaced part of the cover that protects the water meter. The part that the meter reader person places their gadget on the cover and gets the reading. Only thing I can think of is that part was defective and gave a false reading.

Sorry to say I received a very large bill for irrigation, called them, they said get a plumber to look at your system. Looked at it myself and found nothing. Called them and asked them to read the meter again and that they must have read it wrong. I asked them if I could read the meter for them, they said they don't want customers uncovering their meters. Bottom line, I have never found the reason for the very large bill and haven't received a large bill since. Go Figure.
How about this one too. About 6 months ago I received a very large bill for our in house water. Again, I found no reason for the increase and haven't received a large bill since. Go Figure.
I would invite any other members who have experienced this to add to this post.

I manage 100 properties in The Villages (Rental and Snowbirds_ and I use ACI exclusively 352-266-3158. They are reliable and only fix what is needed.

You are the one paying the bill. Pull the cover off (without breaking the wires), and read the meter.
