Harvey is a nice guy and I don't doubt he can fix common problems like broken sprinkler heads and pipes. Complicated repairs I'm not so sure. I had a wiring problem to one of my valve boxes and he came to the same conclusion I did (bad wire). He tried tracing the wire from the controller but I was not sure if he would be able to find it after watching him at it for awhile. In fairness the people who installed the irrigation system didn't bother to put the wire connections in an outside box which makes it quite difficult. We came up with an alternate solution which worked for me. His service fee was very reasonable and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again for simpler issues. He will call you back if you leave a message which is alot more than can be said for other irrigation repair guys. Edit: walking around the yard the next day and noticed the area around the repaired valve cover was unusually wet. Opened the cover to find it filled with water. I had to reach in the box and tighten the solenoid and bleed screw. The solenoid was tight however the bleed screw was slightly loose. I can only speculate it was knocked loose while being worked on. Who know how long the water would have been leaking if I had not walked by and noticed it. Something that bothered me while Harvey was here but didn't mention earlier was him prying open my valve covers with a plier. One of the ended up being cracked by the excessive force because the tabs were not aligned.

Harvey came out to diagnose a significant leak in our sprinkler system. (Picture water shooting into the air) A new pipe had to be run under the sidewalk. Harvey took care of the problem quickly and for a very reasonable cost. A year later lightning hit our house and damaged the control for the sprinkler system. I called Harvey again and he took care of the problem quickly and for less than I could have purchased it myself. He's great to work with, reliable and the work is done right. What more could you ask for?!

I called Harvae on a Saturday morning the day after the recent snowfall and he came out immediately. He quickly diagnosed the problem and on the next day once the ground thawed he fixed the broken sprinkler pipe and valve really, really quickly. Very personable with very reasonable rates. I highly recommend and will use Hendricks again in the future for any irrigation or lighting needs.

I called Harvey Sunday at noon with an emergency leak where the lawn sprinkler system hooks up to our main water line. He offerred to come out that sunny and warm afternoon to fix it but the leak seemed managable at the time so we scheduled a Monday morning appt, not thinking about the weather forecast. By 10AM the following morning we had already received 2 inches of rain. Harvey knocked on the door and went immediately to work in a steady rain as the leak had gotten much worse and we had been forced to turn off all water to our house. Harvey took care of it and even called back the next day to make sure everything was OK. He is a class act. He thought nothing of working in the rain to resolve our issue and gave us a very fair price. You will not be dissappointed if you call.
