“I'd like to recognize the initial person that came out. It was hard to get what I needed done. It was a huge repair job and most of the companies I called wouldn't even take it on.”

“They exceeded my expectations because of the quality of the installation, how they solved problems, their customer service, and how they explained how the new system that they installed works. It was all phenomenal. They were amazing all of the way through. I am very happy.”

“They met or exceeded my expectations with their overall quality and the way the job was done with little or no disruption to the ground cover. They did not leave any undue seams in the ground. It was done very expeditiously.”

“I would like to give higher ratings but they never repaired the lawn, as promised, and don't respond when I had to call in to have a sprinkler head repaired.”

Review by
10/07/2017

“When my system was installed, there was a leak which I found out when I stepped into deep mud. It was fixed—I had to turn off the system for a while before they repaired the system. Later I noticed that a bush was drooping. They came to fix that but the time was not short. Now I have another bush drooping. I love my system but I wish the repair time was shorter.”

“Not the Porsche of irrigation. More like the VW.”

Review by
10/03/2017

“Overall, they did a good job installing our irrigation system and our yard is much improved as a result. I would change a few things however: (1) there is one area where a sprinkler head from three different zones all come together (too close) and so it's too wet, (2) after installation, I found a pile of pebbles under a plant in my flower bed (that I had to remove), and (3) there is not enough instruction about how to operate, adjust, and maintain the system (likely because they want to come back to do that service for a fee). The service would be outstanding if they'd give you a booklet or instructions on how to change a sprinkler head, unclog it, or adjust it.”

Review by
10/03/2017

“I feel they did a good job with the installation, but for service calls, there is a long wait for someone to come (2 weeks once) and a large window of time (7am to noon for example) to block off. Also, the system keeps getting little stones in it requiring staying home for service call and it was less than a year old when this happened twice. When it happens, the water leaks in the back yard creating a lot of sogginess.”

“Overall good install of a five-zone residential system with two-year warranty. Great, I mean great experience with sales agent and initially same with customer service. Used Hydro-Tech to winterize and de-winterize system. Less than one year later, spring of 2017, the system developed a leak in one of the main pressurized lines immediately after spring turn on. After multiple troubleshooting appointments techs identified line with leak but chose to replace entire 90 foot length of PVC line versus finding and repairing the exact break. Hydro-Tech tried to charge me almost $700 for the repairs. Receptionist insisted repair was not covered under warranty even though my paperwork stated ‘Full two-year Warranty’ and only after a very unfriendly conversation with the manager did he agree the repair was covered under warranty. My current neighbor used Hydro-Tech on their previous home and experienced repeated broken lines and poor customer service and had nothing positive to say about them.”

“Hydro-Tech installed a six-zone sprinkler system at our property. System was designed and installed by David Reese—an expert and a pro. He provided all the details and answered all my questions without any hesitation. David's crew showed up on time and knew exactly what to do. David supervised the whole installation and the crew cleaned everything upon completion. David set up the Rachio system, tested it several times, and adjusted a few things to my satisfaction. During the walk-through the next day Jason had to adjust a few other things and he completed the work professionally and exactly what I asked him to do. The entire experience was A+: from David's estimate, design, workmanship, walk-through, payment, scheduling, etc. The winterization scheduling also worked as promised. Overall—very happy with Hydro-Tech has been a good selection.”

“I used them for my sprinkler system. I liked their responsiveness. They completed the work on the intended schedule. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“I liked their fast service, excellent coordination for appointments, and overall quality of product. In April, they did the turn-on service for our sprinkler system. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

“My experience has been neutral. I had some communication issues with the initial guy who sold me the system. They put in the system in the entire yard—front and back. I'd give them a B overall.”

“They seemed to do pretty good work, and it was done in a prompt manner. They installed a new sprinkler irrigation system. I’d give them a B+.”

Review by

“They did what they said they were going to do, on time, and all that stuff, so it was a good experience. I'd give them a B.”

Review by

“They did an installation in May and there were some initial issues. Following the installation, I don't think they really even tested the system because the sprinkler heads weren't adjusted properly. I had to go out and make all kinds of adjustments. I would say I'd give them a B+. They were good on the telephone and everything. Other than the adjustments, I was perfectly happy.”

Review by
11/10/2016

“During their turn-off service today, I asked them to take a look at whether or not I had a leak in the line. They said that there was no leak, and if there was a leak, it would have shown itself when they blew the lines out. Right after shut off, the swamp that was in the left-hand side of my yard did go away, so there's a leak in that line. It's an underground leak, but he didn't take the time to take a look. I'd give them a C.”

“They did sprinkler system work. It was a much larger job than they had anticipated because I was working with a landscaper. They never complained, though, and never changed the price. They came in and did it. I was quite satisfied. The owner himself came out and made sure everything was OK and that everything was working. He showed me how to use the system. I would give them an A. When I called—I had a problem with one of the heads—I called, and they had a guy out in no time. He fixed it with no complaints, no charge, and no nothing. I've already recommended them twice.”

Review by
11/01/2016

“It's been awhile. They installed a sprinkler system. They came in when I called them to set it up. The guy that worked for them seemed to be pretty knowledgeable—a problem-solver. I thought the last guy that came to set it up was good too. I thought they were staffed pretty well. I'd give them an A grade.”

“Hydro-Tech is fine. They did work on a sprinkler system. My husband says he would give them an A in everything. We would recommend them, absolutely. I recommend them with all my real estate people, and anything I sell, I recommend Hydro-Tech. They're doing a building downtown for us, and one here.”

I guess they were supposed to come today—I haven't checked to see. There's nothing I particularly disliked about work they did for us. We're fine. I'd give them a B.”

Review by

“They installed an irrigation system. They took care of their job, but they kind of destroyed a lot of stuff. They took care of it, though. The plumber wasn't very good. I had to fix the plumbing. The biggest problem I had with them was with their service department. You can't call ahead to get a first-call appointment. They will not give you a first-call appointment. You have to schedule for a full-hour window on a first-call appointment, even when you schedule months ahead of time. So that's part of the reason why I'll be leaving that company. I'd give them a B+. They really do a pretty good job, for the most part. They do have some quirks about them still. They followed through and did their job.”

Review by
11/01/2016

“Johnny was very good at installing the sprinkler system. They did an installation back in May. That was very good. They did have to come back out. There were a couple of busted heads that had to be replaced within a few days. Overall, it was good. I’d give them a B. I think that the salesperson was very good. The other guys were good, but there were some minor issues that happened. They were very responsive. When the issue was pointed out, they came right back out and corrected the problem.”

Review by
11/01/2016

“I would say my experience was average. They did my sprinkler lines. I didn't like the fact that the guys couldn't speak English. They were hard to communicate with and couldn't explain anything that they did. They were in and out, and I had to sign a paper. I'd give them a C. They didn't communicate with me, and they didn't really say what they did, so I have no idea about the quality of their work.”

Review by
11/01/2016

“The experience with Hydro-Tech was somewhat positive. They installed the sprinkler system last year, but they come out regularly to do some work, like clearing the pipes. I think their customer service is not very customer friendly. They're very straightforward and not willing to go out of the way to help their customers. I'd give them a C.”
