Which sprinkler/irrigation system do you like?

susan_z5_mo(z5, MO)April 7, 2011

I am in the process of choosing an irrigation company to install a system at my house. Are you familiar with Weathermatic or Hunter products? What would you look for when choosing an irrigation company? The companies I chose are reputable companies. There is a difference of 1,500.00 b/w the bids.

Thanks for your help.

Susan,

Are the bids itemized? Can you determine where the differences in cost lies(pun). Why not a third quote? Can you give us the breakdown of quantities.

Weathermatic: http://www.amazon.com/Weathermatic-SL1600-Zone-Irrigation-Controller/product-reviews/B001PMY6QQ/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

$1,500 is what percent of the total average bid?

Aloha

I work as an irrigation service tech,we use Hunter in general.the clocks are easy for the homeowner to operate,the heads can last upwards of 20 years. Weathermatic is nothing bad either,their valves are better than hunter by far.a valve is a valve as long as it lasts,you wont do much with the valves. but weathermatic have a little tab as a bleeder rather than a screw type on hunter. RAIN BIRD is another GREAT NAME. they are always on the cutting edge of technology. if you have any questions,just post them. i love answering peoples questions about my line of work lol. i cant get the knowledge out fast enough.
