Default Sprinkler Repair Recommendation

Has anyone used Priority h20 for sprinkler repair? In the Daily Sun they advertise $39 to check your system. I just want to make sure it's not some "bait and switch" scheme.

I'd go with Jim Baumgartner. He's honest, fair in his prices ($25 to do a basic check) and a good guy to boot. Do a search for his number. Don't have it handy, sorry.

Another recommendation for Jim. We had Massey out and they quoted us $850. I called Jim and he did everything that was needed for $240.

Stay away from Priority. They are incompetent and unreliable. They are a part of Hometown which is also unreliable.

Massey quoted my neighbor over $800 to "rework" his irrigation system. They said there were too many heads in some areas, not enough water coverage in other areas. I told him that was bs. I went over with my son-in-law, we used a small screwdriver to adjust a couple of sprinkler heads way down, and a couple more heads way up. And we twisted a couple of heads around to hit the right areas. It took about 20 minutes to fix the alleged $800 problem.
