WHEN PURCHASING AN UNDEGROUND IRRIGATION SYSTEM - SOME POINTS TO PONDER -

1. IS THE CONTRACTOR INSURED? IF HE ISN'T AND SOMEONE GETS INJURED ON YOUR PROPERTY YOU COULD BE PAYING FOR A LONG TIME!

Smitty's Carry Two Million dollars Liability Insurance at all times.

2. DOES THE CONTRACTOR PAY W.S.I.B. FOR HIS WORKERS? SOME CONTRACTORS HIRE STUDENTS AND PAY CASH TO ELIMINATE THIS.

Smitty's L.S. carries Workers Comp. monthly even for students who we have few of.

3. WILL THE CONTRACTOR BE INSTALLING SEPARATE HEADS ON THE BOULEVARD OR JUST SHOOTING THE WATER OVER THE SIDEWALK?  PEOPLE GET UPSET AND CALL THE CITY IF THEY GET WET WALKING DOWN THE STREET.

We always install a separate zone for the boulevard as it is often a hotter area with no trees to protect from the sun.

4. DOES THE CONTRACTOR HAVE A PLACE OF BUSINESS OR JUST AN ANSWERING MACHINE?  WILL YOU GET A HUMAN VOICE WHEN YOU CALL WITH A PROBLEM?

Our full time Office is open during regular business hours and our Secretary will to look after you or direct you to someone who can.

5. ARE YOU GETTING CONTRACTOR QUALITY OR OVER THE COUNTER PRODUCTS FROM A RETAIL STORE . THERE IS QUITE A DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY AND WARRANTY.

Our products are all Contractor ,Professional quality.

6. IS THIS THE CONTRACTORS FULL TIME BUSINESS OR ARE YOU ALREADY PAYING PART OF HIS (SCHOOL TEACHER, FIREMAN, ETC. )WAGES ?

Our full time Business is Irrigation and has been since 1987.  Many installers follow the designs we have established for ourselves and tried to imitate our quality.

Finally - Be careful of " Cash Deals" and paying all or part up front. These deals go bad often. We like to be paid when when the job is completed to everyone's satisfaction.
