Lifetime Guarantee - The Fine Print
Rainman Irrigation, Inc. guarantees the quality of workmanship for as long as you own your home. If an installed part or repair fails due to workmanship or manufacturers anomalies, we will replace it at no cost. Please note, exceptions to this include: “acts of God” or nature (adverse weather such as broken tree limbs, lightning, etc.) root damage, ground settling, power surges, abuse, debris, damages caused by another person or party, animals, insects, vandalism, landscaping damage or damage that has been caused by construction, equipment or motor vehicles. Any replacement of parts, repair or modification by a third party, not performed to industry standards, can also void the waranty. Improper or lack of winterization to a Rainman installed system that results in freeze or pressure damage is not covered by the Lifetime Warranty. Due to potential contamination we cannot warranty valves or heads connected to a well or pump system. We must have a signed quote (contract) before starting any new installation. Note: Toro & Irritrol valves if rebuilt (topped out) carry a 1 Year Warranty. If the entire valve is replaced, Irritrol valves carry a 5 Year Warranty, Toro valves a 2 Year Warranty from the manufacturer. Non-payment past 90 days - unless pre arranged - will also void the warranty.
Testimonials

“I did my research and shopped around, by far the most professional outfit. I have over an acre and they finished the job in 1 day, came back the next day and walked through the system with me. Don and Jeff know their stuff and are very dependable, willing to answer whatever questions you might have. They also use commercial grade heads and valves, not the cheap stuff found at home depot, which told me they are in it for quality not just a high job turnover rate. I'll never use anyone else as long as these guys are around.”

From Kudzu.com

“Don and his crew reviewed my existing irrigation system and made repairs and improvements on the same day for what I felt was a very reasonable cost. I recommend Don and his crew to those needing irrigation services in the Atlanta area.”

Walker A. - Marietta, GA

“My experience was positive and painless. They arrived promptly at the appointed date and time. They checked the system...controller and lines and sprinkler heads. Found two not functioning properly...cleaned one and replaced a broken one. Don gave his professional recommendation on length and frequency of watering and why. He explained the varying needs of trees & shrubs, flowering material and the lawn given the type of soil we have.  So after asking a few questions to which he provided satisfactory answers, I agreed to the "new" water scheme.  He set the controller for the new scheme. The two-man team was courteous, knowledgable and very professional.”

Charlenne C. - Atlanta, GA

“Don and Jeff came out as soon I called and did a fantastic job! The quickly came up with an estimate for the work I needed done and it was very reasonable. After we agreed to the price, they got right to work and finished quickly. Although I was thinking I needed to have more work done initially, they pointed out ways I could save by using more of my exsiting system. Professional, responsive, failrly priced and a great to have work on my yard. These guys are top notch!”

Mike H. - Acworth, GA

“Your company and both of you have done such a great job in repairing our irrigation system that was installed by a very incompetent person.  I cannot say enough good things about your firm.
Gary B. - Marietta, GA

“Thank you for doing such a wonderful job installing our irrigation system and exterior landscape lighting.  Your company Rainman Irrigation exceeded our expectations. You were timely, knowledgeable and professional and you delivered everything you promised. It was a delight working with you both.”

Joan M. - Alpharetta, GA

“Excellent Response & Professionalism - Called them due to minor emergency with a leak in the irrigation backflow preventer and city mainline. We were without water and they came out within 3 hours and fully repaired the leak. Very professional company and would highly recommend their work and high level of service.”

Matt M. - Marietta, GA

“Less than an hour after installing our pathway and accent lights, one of our neighbors came by to take a peek and comment on them. The house looks absolutely amazing at night! Rainman did an awesome job both with installation as well as concealing their work. I highly recommend them to anyone considering pathway/accent lighting or irrigation systems!”

Eric N. - Dallas, GA

“Like having a Friend in the Business! I searched all over the internet to find an irrigation company in my area and found a good many. I had a handful of quotes by the time Don and Jeff showed up from Rainman Irrigation. Right away the experience was different, they took the time to explain and walk through exactly what was needed and how it was going to be implemented, which had not been done by any previous company that I had called out for an estimate. On the day of install they were on time, extremely professional and the install could not have gone better. It is pretty rare that you find a company where the same guys that came out to give the estimate are the exact same guys who do the installation. I cannot say enough about my experience with Rainman Irrigation, other than it is like having a friend in the business!”

Zach H. - Dallas, GA

“When I am impressed and overly happy with a company I always want to shout out to all my friends!  If you are in the market for sprinkler service then you should absolutely call this company! I have known Don for many years.  He installed and serviced our irrigation system in our old house so when we moved to our new subdivision, I called Don to service our irrigation here.  I have never been more impressed with Rainman’s customer service and expertise.  If any of you are needing this type of service I highly recommend that you call Don.”

Dawn C. - Powder Springs, GA

“We were completely satisfied with our irrigation & lighting installation. Don Drake and team ensure a high level of professionalism & value.”     

Scott S. - Atlanta, GA  

“Awesome customer service and customer skills. Very knowledgeable, informative and dependable. Would and will give them repeat business! They are better than just being competitive.., as they leave you with a true sense of value for the dollar. Really outstanding.”

Jones - Kennesaw, GA

“I tried to cancel my contract with , however they would only refund $147 out of $210! They said they needed the remainder for admin costs! I will never do business with them again and never pay for a contract for my system again. From now on I will call Rainman.”

Kathie M. - Acworth, GA

“Wow! The response to our needs and the professionalism, knowledge and friendliness of these guys is unparalleled. I wouldn't call any other company for irrigation needs, nor would I recommend another company besides Rainman.”

Robbie F. - Atlanta, GA

“The Best Irrigation Company in greater Atlanta area. I Highly recommend Rainman Irrigation for any repairs or installation. They were efficient, courteous, professional and very reasonable price-wise. I was very impressed by their knowledge and found out that they have 24 years experience in irrigation. I will definitely call them again.”

Kim S. - Atlanta, GA

“Having never sought out anyone outside my husband to service our irrigation system, I didn't know what to expect. Rainman took my frantic call on a Saturday afternoon, patiently explained how to shut off the water to stop the major leak from a broken main line -without shutting off water to the house. They came out Monday morning and fixed the broken pipes quickly and efficiently. They were very nice, explained everything and priced the work very fairly. Their work came with a lifetime warranty and I no longer have a pond in my yard from the leak!”

Tanya W. - Powder Springs, GA

“Thanks so much for maintaining & fixing our irrigation system. You have been a pleasure to work with.”

Linda B. - White, GA

“Thank you for your business reliability and for your kind offer to help when my landscape reorganization begins. I so appreciate it.
