“They realigned some sprinkler heads and did a few other things to our irrigation system. I was satisfied with everything they did for us. They were very efficient; the crew members all seemed to know what they were doing. We put a new fence in and had a lot of new sprinkler heads moved outside the fence, and they located where all the sprinkler heads were pretty easily. They did an extension from there and finished it all in a day, and I haven't had any problems since then. They deserve an A.”

They were straightening things out, because when they installed the system, it was hard to test it and see because I had it done in the middle of winter. When they came out and opened it, they were actually able to test it. I would grade them as an A+.”
“Hydro-Tech initially installed our full sprinkler system when we moved into the house about three and a half years ago. Then, last summer, we had some patio and deck work done, and they kind of shifted around the system for us. They moved some of the stuff that needed to be moved and reinstalled the heads in the flowerbeds and stuff like that. I would say they were excellent. I would give them an A+. I didn't have any problems with them. I think I did ask them to add something on for hanging plants, and they were really willing. It wasn't originally on our order, and they were able to take care of it that day. They were very nice.”

When there's ever a problem, they're right out. They're really, really easy to work with. I would give them an A+; I thought they were great to work with.”
“It was positive because they did all of the things one would hope for. They got here on time, and they did a really excellent job. They've followed through on everything they said they'd do, and so they were just great. They did sprinklers in our front yard. This was the first time that I used Hydro-Tech. I chose them because my landscape contractor recommended them. The cleanup was perfect. I would definitely give them A+.”
“Hydro-Tech put in a new lawn sprinkler system for me. They were courteous, and they put in the system in a very unobtrusive, neat way. They were excellent, and they just came back for the first time to shut the system down for the winter that they put in this spring, and as far as I know that was all fine as well. I'd give them the highest grade, though I haven't really had any service experience yet. In terms of the installation and the first year's service, I would give them the highest possible grade, an A+.”
“Hydro-Tech is an excellent company, and their customer service is excellent. I'm very happy with them. I would give Hydro-Tech an A+ grade.”

The quality of the work that was done was fantastic. I have a service contract with them. I would definitely recommend them. I chose them because they were a recommendation from another company. I would give them an A+.”
“Hydro-Tech bent over backwards to get everything installed. We had an install date, and they called two to three days before because their schedule opened up. They came, they did it, they didn't tear up the yard, everything worked and was good to go. I chose them because they were recommended by two other friends. If I had the need, I would use them again. I would give them a grade of A+. Basically, they did excellent work. They did everything that was on the contract. We have had the product a year or two, and everything is working great. No problems. They have great customer service when I have had to call to set up appointments and so forth.”
“Hydro-Tech did some work for me in the past. They showed up on time, they did a good job, they cleaned up, and they were quick. They originally installed my sprinkler system. The quality of the work was excellent. I would certainly use the company again. I chose them because they were the ones that installed it. I would give them an A+.”
“It was positive. I think they shut off the water and cleared out the sprinklers. It was good quality. They were OK. I'd recommend them. They were fine. They were an A+.”
“They came when they were supposed to, and they finished the work in a timely manner. The person who came to help us was very courteous, and he knew what he was doing. We actually got the sprinkler system for the summer and the fall season. We don't have a contract yet. We just called them, and they did it. A+ for them. I didn't have any problems.”
“They put an irrigation system in. They arrived on time. They were knowledgeable about what they were doing, and the cleanup was very good. I'd probably give them an A+. We thought there was a leak, and they came out right away and fixed it, so that was not a problem, and their response was very quick. So I would absolutely recommend them—A.”
“I was pretty pleased. They were prompt and very helpful. They came out when they said they would. They did a good job and didn't mess things up. It was a lawn sprinkler. I'd have to judge it as good. I'd give it an A+.”
“Hydro-Tech did a great job. They installed an in-ground sprinkler system. They were very professional and took care of any issues that I had, even when it wasn't set up absolutely correctly to cover my entire lawn. They came back out and corrected it at no additional charge. They did a really nice job. I would feel comfortable using them again. They were definitely an A+. I recommended them to some of my neighbors.”
“Hydro-Tech did a great job. They were thorough, they listened to what I had to say about where I wanted everything, and they did very good. They did a complete installation. The quality of the work was good. The cleanup was good, too. I would give them an A+.”
