Whatever you do, please do not fix your Minneapolis irrigation system

water conservation Minneapolis sprinklers lrWhen you had your irrigation system installed, you probably didn’t do it yourself. You probably had an irrigation company install it and set it up to run automatically. Flash forward a couple years and the birds of spring are chirping for some lawn watering. If you’ve turned on your system yourself, you might well have noticed some broken heads, gushing heads, geysers, leaks, and/or heads not popping up and have decided that your system is in need of repair.  If we can take a line from advertising… “Warning; do not attempt this at home!”

As a homeowner, it seems that there’s always something that needs to be repaired and there’s always something you would like to improve. Wouldn’t it be a lot better to spend our dollars on the fun stuff like home improvements and buckle down to figure out why one sprinkler head is dribbling and another is not popping up? After all, the guys at Lowe’s and Home Depot have all the parts and are well versed in helping pick the right ones. I cannot tell you how many times we’ve received a call from a homeowner to service their system only to find a handful of Lowe’s parts and a very frustrated homeowner when we arrive on the property.

Whether a proud DIY’er or a closet DIY’er, I can tell you that this is definitely a job you should leave to the professionals. Regardless of the type of DIY’er we are, we all have had that time when we spent more in a failed DIY attempt than in just calling the professional. The last thing we need to do is get gouged on expensive repairs.

System Efficiency Score seal 250At Conserva Irrigation – Twin Cities, we feel your pain. That’s why we created Flat Rate Pricing. We don’t want any of our clients to feel concern about overpriced servicemen to keep you from getting the quick, efficient, and quality service you need on your system as you turn on your system for 2015. Not only do we have Flat Rate Pricing with complete transparency, we also provide discounts for water efficient systems.

When we come to check your system, we perform a Free Inspection – a 12 point efficiency evaluation to determine your System Efficiency Score® (SES).  If you sign up for one of our seasonal packages you will receive 10% off all of your repairs.  Additionally, if your SES score is 75% or greater, we provide an additional 10% off our Flat Rate Pricing.  It is true; since we’re transparent, that adds up to a real 20% off your repair bill.

So, if you’ve chosen to turn on your system yourself, and you see something awry, just give us a ring.  Our Free Inspection is just that –  completely free.  We will give you your System Efficiency Score®, and if anything needs to be fixed, a published Flat Rate Price list for anything that needs fixing.
