The Difficulty of Sprinkler Repair Quotes
THE CUSTOMERS SITUATION
Many customers call us with an irrigation system that is not working properly. After describing the nature of their problem, the natural question is “How much will this cost to repair?”. However; in irrigation, that question is not so easily answered. While some simple repairs are easy to give a ball park estimate, the majority of problems are very difficult to give an exact price.
Since the majority of all sprinkler systems are under ground, it becomes impossible to diagnose a sprinkler properly until a repair technician actually comes out and starts digging to find the problems. Therefore, repair estimates are a little like pulling your car up to the repair shop and asking them provide an estimate without ever looking under the hood of the car. In addition, since sprinkler lines are under the ground, any break or leak in the lines can introduce dirt into the sprinkler system that not only means the leak has to be fixed but other issues will arise as a result of the original problem. These issues after the leak has been fixed are impossible to diagnose until the original problem has been fixed.
SOME COMPANIES SOLUTION
Some irrigation companies will give you an exact price for a repair without digging and viewing the issue in person. When companies are pricing in this manner, they are giving themselves a large margin of error in the price. Therefore, protecting themselves if the repair takes longer than expected. All customers can be assured that if a company gives a firm quote on a sprinkler repair, the company has added money to the quote in case the repair is harder than expected. This pricing method will lead to an unfair charge to the customer if the repair is easier than expected.
