Tiered Billing Rates For 2022:  Aside from backflow testing and winterizing all repair services are billed by the hour per tech (not by the truck).  Repair trucks in Covid days are running a single tech per truck.  In non-covid years we may run either a 1 or 2-person crew and the 1st hour of service is billed at 1 hour with 1 man, or ½ hour with 2 men. The first man hour, (or our minimum charge) varies by service and by the time of Season.  The 1st hour is billed more than subsequent hours.  The additional cost of the 1st hour of service helps cover transportation costs.  If we need to come back because we ran short on time – the additional 1st hour minimum is not billed on the return trip – instead, billing is at the lower continued rate and with a 15-minute minimum.  Continued labor is billed hourly per tech at a lower rate per hour then the first hour – the exception is for specialty services which are billed at flat rate.  Billing is timed in 5-minute increments.  High season rates run April 22nd through Sept 2nd.  During this time frame the 1st hour of billing for our Sprinkler activation service and tune-ups is $124.95, additional hours are billed at $100.00 p/h per tech.   See more about tiered billing rates below.   Specialty services like leak detection – valve locating – low voltage electrical trouble shooting – indoor backflow repairs – sprinkler pump system maintenance and service line repair are billed at higher hourly rates.
