Sprinkler lines cut when new electric lne was trenched.
I had a new electric service line run by Crawford electric and after that my sprinkler system no longer worked. I asked if they could have cut the line and the company owner denied it. I recently had a sprinkler company come out to fix the system. They found where the sprinkler line was cut right along where the new electric lines were laid. I want Crawford to pay for fixing the sprinkler lines they cut.

Desired Settlement
Pay for the damage to the sprinker lines and having them repaired.

Business Response
This work was completed 2 years ago 2-20-14.
If we damaged the sprinkler line in our repair
of the electrical line I would be glad to take
care of the bill.
I would like to see the invoice for the repairs.

Consumer Response
I have copy and pasted the response from the sprinkler company here. If it would help I can also forward a picture of the damage as the sprinkler company dug it up last week to find the damage and estimated the repairs or Mr ******** can come to my hours and inspect the damage himself..

From Busy Bee Sprinkler Co:

Hi Mr. *****, per our conversation the other day I wanted to give you the estimate for repairs that you requested.

Repairs will be as followed where the damages are: We will excavate the area to access all damages to the irrigation supply lines. Removal of all damaged lines will be needed and followed by reconnecting with all new material. If irrigation wire at damaged lines cannot be completely located or repaired, new lines will have to be ran from the control box to the valves. That will include having to locate the valves that the damaged lines supply.
After all damages are correctly repaired we will have to test and tune up all irrigation zones that the lines supply. This being because damages have been subject to having mud and debris sent through the lines from not being properly repaired beforehand.

I am estimating all cost of labor and material to be approximately $1000.00 total. Any further damages or repairs will be discussed as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me back any time via email at ********* or by phone at XXX-XXX-XXXX.

Thank you,
****** ****

Final Consumer Response
This issue has been resolved. I am happy with the arrangement with Crawford Electric and can close this issue with no further action needed.

Thank you for your help and assistance.
