I've got the best sprinkler system in town nowNov 8, 2018VerifiedRonald C.'s reply
He’s not joking people. He has the best sprinkler system in Lafayette.
Could improve in the area of communication and preparedness for the job.Nov 6, 2018VerifiedRonald C.'s reply
Jeremy, I agree that I could use some improvement in some areas. That is a fair assessment. But, I was able to quickly diagnose the repairs needed. I replaced the bonnet from the back flow preventer which could have potentially flooded your basement if that old bonnet did not hold. I replaced the brass 3/4” ball valve downstream of the back flow preventer that was cracked. I added a 1/2” brass drain downstream of the ball valve I replaced so winterizing in the future will be easier and also because it’s actually wrong to blow the system out through the back flow preventer because it will eventually damage the back flow preventer enough where it will fail and potentially flood the basement. I then winterized your system. And I believe the total price for labor and parts was around $175. I was late. I had to go and get parts. That’s why it wasn’t worthy a 5-star job. Butt, it wasn’t a 2-star job. I would really appreciate it if you re-thought your review. 2-stars for a quality job with a very, very, very fair price is very tough for me to reconcile. And, I like you and your family and would hope you would have me back to do any improvements or repairs to your irrigation system or landscaping. And, I have taken reviews personal in the past. 1 review that was a 1-star I just really didn’t have enough experience to realize the problem right away. The other 1 - star the woman gave me 1- star before I showed up and I was going to be made to show I deserved for her to change it. And I got into this little argument about it with her and she’s a Senior Citizen and I just should have done the work. The other 2-star review I believe was a 3-star job but I didn’t do something I said I was going to do, and the woman took it upon herself to do some irrigation pipe fitting together so I can understand that 2- star review more. But if 1- star is the worst- like you paid for something and got nothing. I personally think 2-stars would be you paid a high price and got shotty work. 3-stars would be you got an ok price for a decent job. 4-stars is price is almost a bargain and the job is better than average. And 5-stars is steal of a price and the work is built-to-last. So, I believe the price was a steal, and my work will last. But, I was a bit unprepared and I was late so I don’t deserve 5-stars. Like I said, please re-think this review because it hurts my ability to get new customers when they see 1 or 2-star reviews. I’ve grown up a little bit in regards to how I handle reviews where essentially someone is saying that they disliked or were so upset by something that the person who did the work should suffer long into the future because of it. And the only reason I spent all this time writing and reflecting upon this is because in my heart I don’t believe the effort and time I put in warrants 2 -stars even with my shortcomings in regards to communication, time-management, and preparedness.
