Watch out for these guys

FLOWERY BRANCH, GEORGIA -- Called around to get estimates because lightning hit our sprinkler system and burned the control. John Watson of All About Irrigation kept calling and calling me. Was out in my area and would come by, check out the system, run test and give me written estimate for $75. I said o, k. BIG MISTAKE. He did come by for about 5 minutes, did not give me a written estimate and just said price would START at $450 for a new timer. MUST THINK I'M STUPID. I'm not positive, but the leak in the pipe in the front yard didn't start until I went around back with Mr. Watson and his man was standing by leaking pipe with a shovel in his hand. When a reputable company came and we found a leaking pipe, it was split an entirely different way. First leak--lightning or hit with shovel?!?!

Anyway, the man I hired charged $75 to come out and replace the timer. The entire job is about what All About Irrigation wanted to come by and give me an estimate. AVOID THIS COMPANY unless you have money to burn.

You aren't sure about that leak, so there is not proof the assistant did it in the 5 minutes that they were on your property.

Timers and electronic controls be expensive, but the maximum I would have guessed would be $200 including labor. It sounds like this guy was trying to take you for a ride.
