Our home in Markham, Ontario has a 60' x 130' lot. After much research and consultation with six different companies, we decided to place our trust in Allan Brookes and his company, AA Waters and Brookes.
They were the most professional of all irrigation contractors we met with. Our Rainbird and Hunter System was designed by a Professional Engineer who is a Certified Irrigation Contractor and Certified Irrigate Designer.
AA Waters and Brookes is a full service company who took responsibility from start to finish. It began with the company making all necessary arrangements to perform locates with the City of Markham and various Utilities to avoid digging in the wrong areas. We did not have to do so ourselves.
All components and workmanship were of top quality. Five professionals comprised of Certified Irrigation Contractor, Certified Irrigation Designer, Certified Irrigation Technician, Certified Landscape Technician, and Certified Backflow Tester completed our installation in one day with no interruptions nor compliants from my neighbours. They even sprinkled grass seeds in bare areas before they left. An unadvertised service and nice gesture.
We selected the upgraded Rainbird Model ESP-SMTe with weather-based control for WaterSense compliance and water savings of 30-70% depending upon the month. Avoid over watering your lawn in the spring and fall while saving money on watering costs. This weather-based computer performs all adjustments automatically!
ESP-SMTe integrates technology used by top golf courses for decades and puts it into a user friendly controller. If it's good enough for golf course, it's good enough for me.
Thanks to Allan and his entire team. They'll be back for a post installation follow up in 2 weeks.
If I could rate them 11, I would!
