“Blackburn Sprinklers took care of all my needs and explained everything to me. We walked through my landscape and everything. I had a couple of leaks that I asked him to take a look at, and he took care of those expeditiously. We tested out the entire system, and he made sure I was good to go. I've used Blackburn since I've been in this house—about two years now. I've also had them replace a bad valve on another property I had. I had called around to get some estimates, but the other company never showed up. I called Blackburn, and he came over, saw the problem in the backyard, and diagnosed it right away. He told me my valve was blown, so he took the bad valve out and replaced it. I told him that if he does good work, I'll keep him in my book and call him back if I have any other problems. I would use Blackburn again, and I would recommend them. They deserve an A—I have no complaints whatsoever.”

“The sprinklers are good. I would recommend Blackburn Sprinklers. They get an A rating.”

They replaced a couple of heads, and they adjusted some others that weren't covering right. I found them when they were doing some work for my neighbor. I flagged them down to ask them a question, and they came over to look at my system and check it out. I am satisfied enough to recommend them to other people. They did a nice job—I was pleased. I'd give Blackburn Sprinklers an A.”

“Blackburn Sprinklers is amazing. They have quality service and are very honest. They show up on time and are very efficient and effective.

They came out the very next morning. They're wonderful, and I would absolutely recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”

“They're exceptional. I like their professional and service-minded approach to doing business. They've reworked the sprinkler system lines, replaced sprinkler heads, put in a system monitor that will prevent the sprinklers from going on if it gets too cold or rainy—they've done a lot for me. I'm really pleased. They're A+.”

“They're probably the best sprinkler company I've ever seen. They deserve an A+.”

“The fellow that came out was very skilled—he knew what he was doing. He was a very personable guy, and he resolved the problems that I had. They repaired an existing sprinkler system. I had work done a number of times over the last several years. Different things would come up—I needed to move a sprinkler head, needed to replace some, and had some electrical problems because my system was old. I consider them to be very good, so I think they deserve an A+.”

“I've actually called Blackburn Sprinkler twice since the first time. They responded to my request within four hours of my initial phone call for repair of my system on a weekend. I had multiple heads that needed to be replaced after the winter before the system could be turned on for irrigation. They've got great customer service. It was actually the owner and one of his workers that came to the house. There was nothing for me to clean up. I've used them three times total. I would give them an A+ without hesitation, and I wrote a testimonial on their website that said pretty much the same.”

“They did a good job—they did everything I wanted. Their customer service was good. They fixed my water sprinkler system. This was my first time using Blackburn Sprinkler, and I'll be using them again. They responded quickly when I contacted them. I would give them an A+ grade. I was satisfied.”

“My experience with Blackburn Sprinkler was very good. They came over and helped set our whole system again. I would use them again. They're an A+.”

“Blackburn Sprinkler did a great job. The technician did good work, he didn't charge more than he said he was going to charge, and he was nice. They did sprinkler repair. It was maybe a year, year and a half ago. The work they did was good, and everything has held up very well. I think I chose them based on a personal referral. I'd use them again—in fact, I need to give them a call for this year. I'd give them an A+.”

“The only time I've had Blackburn Sprinkler come out is just to have some repair work done—they just fixed a few sprinkler heads. They did a great job. I would use them again. They deserve an A+.”

“I had some valves that were leaking, and they replaced three of them. They did a very good job. It didn't take them long, and they didn't waste any time as far as I know. It was at the start of the summer. I would give them the top grade, an A+.”

“He just replaced about ten of the valves. Everything turned out fine after the work was done—no complaints. I'd grade them an A.”

“I had broken the sprinkler heads several times myself, and after Blackburn Sprinkler repaired it, I've had no problems out of it. I would give them an A.”

“Blackburn Sprinkler came out, got it done quickly, and didn't charge a lot—that was good. The issue was a cut wire on the sprinkler. That was my first time to use them, and I would use them again. They were considerate of their surroundings. I did not get any other estimates—I just called them. I'd probably give them an A. They came out and did what they said they'd do, so it was good.”

“The technician from Blackburn Sprinkler was on time and showed me what he did, so I know what needed to be repaired. I had some sprinkler heads they had to replace. That worked out fine, and the work has held up well. I have been using their service for three years. I keep using them because he comes when I need him, he does a good job, and he's punctual. The workers are courteous and knowledgeable. It's professional service that you get. I think he had to reschedule one time. I don't see anything negative about the service—I'd say they deserve an A.”

“They replaced a broken sprinkler head. They were prompt—they said they would show up at a certain time, they showed up, and the work was done in 30 minutes. The technicians were fine—they were courteous, knowledgeable, and polite. They cleaned up after themselves when they were done. I'd give them an A.”

“I had a good experience with them. They just come and fix the sprinklers. The quality of the work was good. My grass keeps dying because of a wild animal. I use them now for repairs. They fixed my sprinklers and put in a new sprinkler box. They're good, and they're honest. I would give them a good grade; I'd give them an A.”

“They did repair work—they held up well. This was my first time using them. I would contact them in the future if needed. The scheduling was easy. I would say it was A-grade work.”

“They updated a sprinkler system. This was the first time I had them do work for me. I believe that I called several sprinkler system companies that were in the area. He updated the electrical part of the system—it was more the controlling part. It works much better—it was not working automatically, but now it is. I was very pleased with the work he did. I would say they get an A.”

“They were fine. They did this work for me months ago. They put in a main shut-off valve. They found some valves that have been defective for the last five years. They showed up on a Saturday, and there were no problems. I'd give them an A.”

“It was good—they were on time, and they were able to explain things to me. It was a repair. Nothing comes to mind that they could have done better or improved on. I would recommend them and give them an A.”

“They've done several jobs for me over the last couple of years. If a friend or neighbor were to ask me about Blackburn, I'd say, 'Here is their phone number. You're welcome to call.' I would probably rate them an A.”

“My experience with Blackburn was good. They fixed my sprinklers back in June or July. They did it quickly, and there were no problems. I haven't had to call them back to fix anything since the original work was done. We actually moved out of that house—that's why it was crucial that we get the things fixed. We needed someone to fix it ASAP, and that's what they did. I would give them an A.”

“They did the work, and I didn't have to. They got all the parts I needed replaced—they replaced my sprinkler heads and adjusted the covers to make sure every bit of the yard was getting hit. The time frame was fine—it was done in just a couple hours. I would be fine with giving them an A-.”

“Blackburn Sprinklers rewired the irrigation system. Their service guy was very up front and very informative before he even did the work. He did excellent work, so I'm very happy with the company's service. They just did a wonderful job.”

“The guy from Blackburn was really, really personable. I've had him out two different times, and he's been tremendous. I wouldn't call anybody else. Most recently, I had a leak, and he came out and found it and repaired it. I'd give them an A+.”

“Blackburn Sprinklers did excellent work with repairing my sprinkler system. My system was pretty much in disarray, and they fixed it beyond belief. I had some busted sprinkler heads, and I'd also had my fence extended, so they came and rearranged everything. Their cleanup was excellent—you couldn't even tell they'd been here. I would give them an A+.”

“The guy from Blackburn came, and he was prompt and professional. He explained everything that he was doing, and he was quick. He replaced the control box and checked all the heads to make sure they were all working. Then, he replaced those that weren't working. I would give him and his company an A+ grade.”
