Orlando goes above and beyond expectations, 6/03/2014

Orlando has a special place in our hearts. After 4 years of living with what we were told was a "natural" waterlogged area in our front yard, Orlando quickly zeroed in on the culprit..3 leaking... sprinkler valves...He dug deep into mud, replaced the valves and then cleaned up the area so that it was impossible to tell that work had even been done there....problem resolved! Orlando has a great work ethic. He is punctual, attentive and hard working and also does follow up calls to insure his work was successful. He took the time to walk us through the operating procedures for the sprinkler control unit and made sure that we understood how to set it for several programs so that all zones were timed properly. No other professional took the time to do that with us before. We are thrilled that we have found someone we can trust and who really cares about his work and his clients.

He showed up early, identified the problem quickly, fixed it inexpensively and verbally directed while I operated the sprinkler system control so there would be no doubt I could set it myself. And... he was funny! What more do you need?

Great service and work

I called several companies at 6 PM and Orlando was the only one who answered the call. He came out the next day and immediately fixed our sprinkler problem. He then redesigned our set up to provide the most efficient coverage at a good price. I would highly recommend Orlando and use him again.

Absolutely Fantastic Experience

Orlando is amazing. I could not be happier. He arrived on time, was professional, showed remarkable knowledge, and delivered all he promised. I would recommend him to any friend without hesitation. It was a great experience!

Thank you once again to all of my customers.. My 5 star reviews are the direct result of my pride, self respect, product knowledge, competent application, profound experience and diligence.. My philosophy is "Quality Will Always Supersede Quantity".. the concept really is quite simple and so very rarely achieved by others..

Great service

I would highly recommend this company. The owner Orlando Vasallo does the work himself. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, with a great attitude. I called him this morning, and he was out here this afternoon. He made some adjustments to work that another company had done (for the previous owners), in order to give me better coverage with my sprinkler system while wasting less water. His price was very reasonable.

Helped out in a crunch

We had a sprinkler system flooding the back yard. Orlando was able to come out on short notice, and quickly solve the problem. He was courteous and showed us how to use the sprinklers properly. On top of that, he didn't even charge anything since it was a simple fix. I will definitely call him again for any sprinkler/irrigation issues.

Orlando is a ROCK STAR!

I can't overstate how thankful I feel to have found Alpha1 Irrigation and Orlando. Another company wanted to charge me a ridiculous amount to fix my sprinkler system that Orlando fixed in 1/10th the time for 1/20th the price. I only wish Kudzu allowed me to give 6 stars! Many thanks Orlando!

The Ratings Are True

Orlando is a man. Straight up, this guy is as hard a worker as you will find. I needed to get an estimate to repair my neglected sprinkler system. Others wanted $100 just to come and give me an estimate (get real). Orlando came out on a Sunday afternoon at 4. I had my estimate by 5 after a thorough evaluation. It was reasonable enough that I decided not to get other estimates. I told him that I wanted to hire him...how soon could he come back out? He said, "How about now?" Wow. By 8:30, my sprinklers were repaired. Great job. The guy is in double time speed all the time. A very, very hard worker. You will thank me if you hire him.

Get Him While You Can

Orlando is excellent. He came the same day we originally spoke, gave me a quote on the spot, and did the repairs and sprinkler head repositioning the same day as well. Other guys couldn't even give me a quote until three or four weeks in the future, and another company was totally horrible in multiple ways (see my other reviews). A week or so after the work was complete, I called about one small problem, and Orlando responded very quickly (on a Saturday, no less) and fixed it immediately at no extra charge. Very knowledgeable about landscaping (slope, shading, types of grass and foliage, etc.) and the irrigation systems, and also very professional. Call him immediately and hope he's not already slammed with new business from good word-of-mouth and these reviews!

Alpha1 Irrigation & Lighting replied on 07-03-2011

Thank you for your kind words. It is nice to be sincerely recognized, appreciated, and complimented for excellence. I take pride in producing an extremely high quality service. I seek to be the very best at what I do. My procedures have been honed through 28 years of industry experience. The products I use are similar to any irrigation company. I excel in product use and application. This is where I transcend all others. I offer no tricks, gimmicks, games or misrepresentation because I actually know what Iím doing and enjoy it. :)

Great to Work With

Orlando responded to my request for sprinkler repairs the same day called, even though late in the afternoon. He was very professional and did a great job. He also fixed a minor landscape lighting issue I had. I would recommend him highly.

Great Service

Orlando was very conscientious in diagnosing the issues with my system and quickly addressed the issues. It was apparent that he was interested in helping me solve the issue at a reasonable cost.

Very professional, affordable outdoor irrigation

Alpha1 Irrigation is a family-owned business that prides itself in doing things promptly and professionally, and with a great understanding of meeting the customer's specific needs. They do not do "cookie cutter" installations, but consider the homeowner's land elevations, existing plant materials, and personal preferences for placement of watering zones without sacrificing quality of the final outcome. Their equipment is state of the art, clean, and in perfect working condition. I could not have been more pleased with the whole process from the free estimate, to the prep work and delivery of materials, completion of the installation, and finally, the patient tutorial from the owner, who would not leave the job until he was sure I understood how to use the system. He leaves his contact information inside the programming module so he can continue to coach or return for servicing issues as needed. They are the BEST!

Efficient, Friendly and Reasonable

We have used Alpha Irrigation on two occasions--one for a damaged turnoff on our sprinkle system and the second time for a damaged irrigation line. We were called to keep us informed if there was going to be a delay. Upon his arrival, he identified the problem and wasted no time in completing the job; he cleaned up, was friendly and very reasonable in price. The area in our yard where he dug when he finished after he covered the hole looks as though it was never dug up. He explained what he found as the problem and what he was going to do fix it. He and his assistant were a delight to work with. We were very pleased and will recommend Alpha Irrigation to our family and friends.

Knowledgeable, Experienced and Reliable

Before hiring Orlando, I interviewed him and read his reviews. He is truly five star in all regards. His work is excellent as is his caring and followup. He is very customer-oriented and leaves his work area extremely clean and neat. He gets my very best recommendation.

reliable & maticulous

Orlando is extremely organized and maticulous. My job required him to do part of it initially and continue once I had my lawn service complete some shrub removal. He was very easy to contact and came immediately one I called. He will have to return after I have new shrubs planted and I am very confident that he will once again respond as soon as I call.

Feel duped

I thought I had a winner but not now. I paid $950. Orlando charges $75hr to check your setup. After that $60 an hr, but the invoice never reflected an hourly rate, b/c he took less time even considering the Raintree heads I later priced and the return trips. He had to come back 3xs to bury an unsightly hose he installed, wire my rain sensor, and to fix leaks in the driveway area. All should have been done initially, and he wanted to charge extra. He even blamed me for the problems. I later had to replace a nozzle to fix a defective head that Orlando installed. He used Raintree heads in some areas instead of Hunter, which is my system. I learned that this can cause problems with the water pressure. The area where he installed a Raintree sprinker head with hose is brown, b/c not enough water pressure from sprinkler to properly water. I called him to explain above, and he told me to go elsewhere. I did not intend to use him again.

Ms. Kathleen Flynn.. wow!! where do i start? to all contractors.. please stay away from Ms. Flynn.. you have been warned!! lets dissect her review.. i did not charge her to evaluate her system.. blatant lie #1.. i never told her i would submit an itemized invoice upon completing the work.. blatant lie #2.. i do not use "raintree products" blatant lie #3.. i only returned once(1) to cover poly pipe that had been washed loose by a severe rain storm.. blatant lie #4.. i did not charge her extra for the visit.. blatant lie #5.. the leaks in her driveway are from her consistently driving off the pavement which i did not charge her to repair.. blatant lie #6.. Ms. Flynn consistently plays with and modifies the sprinkler heads.. as she stated herself.. one does not replace a nozzle to repair the entire sprinkler head.. as you can see blatant lie #7.. the area or lawn she refers to is from her over watering, as she regularly alters the programing.. her fix-all solution is to keep watering more and more.. after numerous return visits, at no charge, to explain, re-adjust and repair changes caused by her modifications, Ms. Flynn called to threaten and criticize me.. i told her, as a consumer, she was free to call someone else and suggested she do that.. read all my reviews.. read her review carefully.. it becomes obvious Ms. Flynn can not competently and properly explain herself.. Ms. Flynn is completely distorting what actually happened.. more likely than not just to smear my great profile..

Great Job

We had interviewed several irrigation companies after our county installed new sidewalks at our front entrance. Everyone was interested in installing a new system verses repairing. I notice another subdivision had repaired their system so I contacted their HOA and was given Orlandoís name. I contact him to see if he would give a quote for a new system. He asked that I allow him to come out and see if I really did need a new system. Once on site, he spent 2 hours just looking and investigating the system and found both connections on each side. We selected Orland and have been very impressed with his knowledge and passion for his work. This is something you just donít see today. The price and work performed exceeded our expectations. We will definitely continue to use him and recommend him to our neighbors.
