Below is a brief outline of our charges for retic repairs in Perth's Northern Suburbs.
Its difficult to quote many retic service jobs as there are so many factors that can affect the time required to repair some of the retic issues but this should serve as a good guideline.
For reticulation installations we would recommend a site survey and quote in all cases.
Retic Repair and Service Rates - Perth
Standard Call out fee $70.00+gst
Standard Hourly rates $70+gst per hour per retic technician charged in 15 minute increments. (Min charge in all cases $87.50+gst). Sometimes we will send two guys out to your job, and on this basis, we generally expect to finish the job in half the time or less, meaning your end cost will generally be the same or less.
Quotes for retic installs are free, but quotes for service work are unfortunately not. There is usually a degree of troubleshooting required for an accurate quotation, for which our standard charges apply.
Emergency retic repair call out fees
An emergency call out fee of $150+gst will apply in some cases if we are asked to drop what we are doing to attend, or if we are asked to attend on a Sunday or late at night.
Retic solenoid valve locating and broken retic wire tracing
We use Armada Pro retic wire tracers to locate faulty retic valves and broken wires, so we don't have to dig up half of your garden in the process. This equipment is very expensive and to cover this we sometimes have to apply a surcharge of $50+gst for the use of the equipment. In light of current economic conditions this fee is currently being waived.
