Does Rain-Tec provide free estimates for new installations?

How do I get a separate water meter installed for the irrigation system and why would I want one?

A separate water meter will save you money on the cost associated with sewage bills. For every dollar that you spend on water, you get charged equally for the sewer. Contact Rain-Tec for your local water authorities pricing and requirements. The new meter placement should be located near your irrigation tie-in.

What is the warranty period on parts and installation? (All warranties are non-transferable)

  • Parts – 3 years
  • Labor – 2 year

Why do I have to “winterize” my irrigation system?

For preventative maintenance and in order to prevent pipe or parts damage due to freezing temperatures, we recommend that you winterize your irrigation system. This consists of draining the water out of the pipes and turning the system off until Spring. A startup service is needed before turning the system back on next Spring.

What is not covered under your warranty?

Acts of God, power surges, damage made by other companies, vandalism, landscaping damage, or parts that are hit by a vehicle. We cover manufacturer and install related defects only.

How does a rain sensor benefit me?

A rainsensor will not allow your system to run if it is raining and will save you money.
