Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We are filing a complaint against Irrigation Concepts, located in League City, due to poor quality and unacceptable resolution to the issue with our sprinkler system. We will also post a review on ****** **** for other customers can be made aware of our experience and have the knowledge when selecting a repair business for Irrigation systems.The initial reason for our call to Irrigation Concepts was due to an error on our controller (Rainbird) box. The system would successfully complete zones 1 & 2 in the backyard but show an error message for zones 3 &4. The 1st visit from Irrigation Concepts occurred on May 30th, 2014. The lead technician pressed the reset button on the back of the controller board and was unable to duplicate the problem for the zones. I was present when the tech reset each zone to ~1 or 2 minutes and each zone operated. The tech did not trouble-shoot the problem beyond that he did not test the voltage on the box nor did he try to locate the valves. They suggested some modest repairs to a couple of the sprinkler heads. In retrospect, the repairs were not needed; however, we agreed with the scope of work. The total for the 1st invoice was $212.51We were on vacation the 1st week in June and returned to a sprinkler system with the exact same issue as before zones 3 & 4 were showing errors. We called Irrigation Concepts and requested that they come back out to the house, at zero service charge, as soon as possible. The same lead technician arrived for work on June 12th saw the errors on the box and located the two valves for zones 3&4. He made comments about the type of wiring used from the box to the valves; however, the tech made no attempt to check if the wiring was the root cause. They replaced both valves even after we asked if this was the source of the problem. The next day same errors! The 2nd invoice original total was $345.51My husband called and talked to the owner directly about the problem. The owner threatened my husband to call the City of Pearland because our system did not have a backflow preventer. And, he continued to make comments about how difficult the valves were to locate and dirt kept falling into the work area. He concluded the call by directing that we should not contact his place of business again for any sprinkler system issues. Also, he agreed to reduce the 2nd invoice by $100. So, we paid $241.51 for a 2nd time with no issues being resolved.Since, we have 1) tested the old valves and they are operable, 2) discovered the root cause of the problem was wiring from the box to the valves 3) replaced the wiring and 4) installed a backflow preventer by a company that obviously completed a much improved job. Whereas, Irrigation Concepts basically changed out parts that were not necessary and never resolved the root cause of the problem. In problem-solving, it is basic the company should identify the potential failure modes in the system and not just guess by part replacement.
Desired Settlement: we are requesting full reimbursement for the 2nd invoice, $245.51
We at Irrigation Concepts would like to start off by saying that we take full responsibility for our actions and in hindsight could have handled this situation better. The customer was angry on phone and we should have done more to diffuse the situation. It is for these reasons we will refund the full 2nd invoice to the customer of $245.51 as of today's date, June 30, 2014.
In our defense however, we would like to state that the repairs we did make at this property were done through the proper protocol of irrigation repair. The wires were tested for continuity and the valves were tested for proper function. The technician could not get the problem to occur during either of his two visits. The technician made a judgment call and went the route of what is most likely to be the problem from our past experiences.
We would also like to apologize publicly if the Customer felt threatened by our technicians remarks about contacting the city to report there was no backflow device on the system. The backflow device which protects our potable water from backflow issues can cause a multitude of problems to the community's water supply. It is our duty to ensure the protection of our valuable water.
In the past 23 years in this business we have had very few unhappy customers, in fact, we have a large customer base of repeat customers. We take any and all complaints personal and will use this compliant as a tool to make our business better.
