Below is a brief outline of our charges for irrigation services in Perths Northern Suburbs.
Its difficult to quote many servicing jobs as there are so many factors that can affect the time required to repair some of the issues but this should serve as a good guideline.
For installations we would recommend a site survey and quote in all cases.
Irrigation Service Rates - Perth
Standard Call out fee $70.00+gst
Standard Hourly rates $70+gst per hour per technician charged in 15 minute increments. (Min charge in all cases $87.50+gst). Occasionally 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.
Quotes for 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 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.
Solenoid locating and broken wire tracing
We use Armada Pro wire tracers to locate 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 have to apply a surcharge of $50+gst for the use of the equipment. If we can't find your valves, we will not charge this fee, but we haven't failed yet.

Supply and installation of Hunter X-Core 6 Station Irrigation controller $295+gst if connected to a GPO, or independent 24v supply. $345+gst if hardwired to the mains.

Approximate guide price for 6 station system, 2 lawn front, 1 lawn back and 1 garden bed front, 2 garden beds back and sides would be approx $2500 to $3500+gst, including cut in by licensed plumber.
