The length of time between services went very quickly. They did a whole new system. I would grade them as a solid A.
We liked the man who initially put in the system. They said would come out to honor their contract and continue to monitor our system, and they have. I would give them an A+.
They sent somebody out to give me a spot-on quote, and the next day, somebody came out and saw that what I needed was a whole new sprinkler system. He came out on a Saturday and laid it all out for me, and that evening, he sent me a formal quote. My neighbor referred me to Hydro-Tech Irrigation. They're A+.
Hydro-Tech Irrigation had good communication—they answered questions, and they responded when I had problems. They did a good job, technically. I'm happy with my sprinklers. Any time I've had a problem, they've come right here. Most recently, they did repairs. I'd say they're an A.
They did a good job. They did good work.
I found them through Best Pick Reports, and I'm happy. The number one reason is that they don't really bother me that much, and when they say they are going to come, they come on time. The second reason is that they clean up after themselves. I knew that they were going to do a lot of digging, so it wasn't so bad. I would rate them as an A.
Hydro-Tech installed the new system. They were efficient, and they were there when they said they were going to be there. They came out when we needed them and were easy to deal with. They get an A.
I would give Hydro-Tech an A.
They gave me what I asked for, and they did the work on time. A friend referred me to them. I would grade the company as an A.
They are reliable, and they come when they are supposed to. I think their customer service is good. About 13 years ago, they put in the irrigation system, and they have been maintaining it ever since. They're an A.
