Whether your retic timer is faulty or simply old and you are not able to program your required Perth watering days, we can help.
We replace reticulation timers in all Perth suburbs. We will fix your retic controller whether connected to mains water or a bore. If it is a plug-in style we send out our service man. If it needs hard-wiring to the mains power our electrician will attend.
Some retic controllers, like the Holman model pictured, look like they may be hard wired but this one actually had a plug pack transformer plugged into a power point in the roof.
We have compatible models to replace all brands of retic controllers including Holman, Rain Bird, Rainmaster, Hunter, Toro, Orbit, Richdel and Irritrol Rain Dial. We typically carry 6 and 9 station models in our mobile stock but we can get any size if required.
Today we attended a house in Wilson. Wilson is a suburb near Riverton and Shelley on the Canning River.
The couple had lived in the house for 12 years and had a shallow old well style bore with a centrifugal pump in one concrete liner. They told us that on average they had spent $400 a year on “bandaid” fixes to the old bore which appeared to be an original DYI attempt. The centrifugal pump constantly lost prime and the water flow from the bore had been marginal. The couple have decided to bite the bullet and invest in a new trouble free submersible style water bore
Next week we will be drilling an 18 metre bore hole specifically designed for the ground conditions of Wilson. Wilson’s proximity to the river means our bore design must pay due regard to avoiding potential saline intrusion. We will install a submersible stainless steel pump that will have the same or greater flow than the existing pump so we can connect it straight into the customers existing reticulation sprinkler system with little modification. The bore will continue to be run from their existing retic controller.
The drilling sand from the new bore will be used to fill the old well.

We had a call today from a customer in South Perth who reported her submersible bore was not working. She thought her Rain Master reticulation controller was OK because the screen still had a display.
We took out the 9 volt back up battery and the display disappeared. This simple home test showed there was either no mains power to the reticulation controller or its internal 24 volt transformer had failed. The reticulation controller needs a 24 volt output to switch the relay, that in turn starts the 240 volt single phase bore or 440 volt DOL starter in the case of a 3 phase pumps.
A bit of an investigation by our servicemen at the South Perth call out revealed that in this case the controller transformer HAD failed. We replaced the controller and there were smiles all round as the bore fired up and the sprinkler came on.
