Reticulation Repairs Perth
Reticulation Repairs is a word that causes many people intense frustration. Firstly, it’s hard to find skilled reliable retic trades, and when you do find someone capable you also want them to care! Repeated problems that keep coming up over and over again make it seem almost not worth even having irrigation.
Here at Reticulation Renovation, we specialise in bringing Perth retic systems to life and helping them be the best they can be. Rebuilding them and renovating them, breathing new life into the system. Although it is important to note that we are not a last-minute urgent retic repair business and have a 10 hour minimum. We often come across areas that need significant irrigation repairs as part of our full system overhauls, some of which are very complicated.
Our Director Luke has almost 2 decades of experience fixing the most complex reticulation repair issues. We have the tools and expertise to fix almost any retic problem we come across. And not only that we will make sure we make every effort to minimise or eliminate the likelihood of the problem occurring again.
Although the list of things we can repair is extremely extensive, here are some of the most common problems we can fix include:
Common Retic Repairs Include
Reticulation Wiring Repairs
We can track your broken irrigation wiring and fix breaks/faults. Many trades and homeowners do not use waterproof Gel Connectors and simply tape the joins, this allows moisture to get in and short the system. We use Silicon Gel wiring connectors, when installing new wiring or sections of new wiring, we ensure that conduit is used as a protective measure.
Reticulation Solenoid Repairs
We can track and locate your broken reticulation solenoids using our Pro 900 solenoid tracker. We know many tricks of the trade but the most important thing you can rely on is we will fix things properly. This may involve doing a more thorough job from the get go which can often cost more itinually but is better in the long run.
Repairing Leaking Piping
We use high pressure pipe cement. If the system is high pressure we will use ‘Primer’ which helps to bond the glue to the PVC piping giving it extra strength. Further to this we normally use telescopic PVC joiners ‘slip fixes’ As the name suggests they extend making it easy to join pipes without bending them. We are experienced with many different types of piping.
We carry a wide range of sprinkler bodies and heads to ensure we can adapt to most system we are repairing. Making sure they are flushed properly and set at the correct heights is part and parcel of our job. We install articulated swing joint risers that connect the pop-ups to the PVC piping. These connecting joints protect the sprinkler and the pipe work.
& Dripper System Repairs
Luke, our Director has been installing subsurface dripline for most of his career. Often dripline system do not perform because they are missing critical elements needed to ensure the proper function. And like anything it’s not just the parts/tools, it’s how you install them. Proper planning and care must be taken. If your retic system is not performing, why not book us to assess it.
When we repair your retic issue we will always be trying to repair it in a way that stops it happening again. Finding the root cause is very important. You would think this would be simple and everyone would do this but sadly with reticulation repair in Perth being unregulated, anyone can do it and this results in many substandard reticulation repairs happening across Perth every day.
From very old styles to the new modern types, we have extensive experience with retic controllers. Often it can be a settings issues in the controller or a variety of other problems. We have our tried and tested quality range of controllers should we find out you do need a new one.
Bore System Repairs
If your bore is blocking up your sprinklers, you have too much pressure or some other bore system issue, reach out to us. We install high quality hydraulic pressure relief valves that help to safeguard the system from ‘dead heading’. If a solenoid fails, the bore will continue to run and could blow up. Often a disc filter is installed as well after the pressure relief valve.

What our clients have to say
Luke is extremely focused on quality and not cutting corners, something that is rare in the retic industry! Luke has done work at my properties over the years and has great knowledge and attention to detail. I definitely recommend him as someone to trust with your reticulation system, if you’re looking for a lasting water-wise solution. Thanks again mate
Found Luke on FB, the information provided on his page really is a true reflection of him. Once we made contact, he worked together with us on several proposals, and we agreed on the one that best fit our budget. We were pleasantly surprised when the final invoice was much less than the initial quote. Communication was always prompt and clear. He even put us in touch with other specialists to get the pump and controller replaced. He is a genuine down to earth guy with a wealth of knowledge which he happily shares. He works really hard and his passion shines through. He is a true professional. We had fun watching him make his slow motion video at the end of the day. Thank you so much Luke.
After putting up with issues created from a landscaper for too long I engaged Luke to address my suffering lawn and help with bringing it back to life.
Was more than impressed with his knowledge and problem solving as he moved about my yard.
Thanks again for the work Luke!
Highly recommend Retic Renovation. Luke is very professional and has a wealth of knowledge. Don’t go anywhere else for your retic needs.
After years of mending our reticulation as amateurs, without ever having the success of keeping all areas of our large garden looking fabulous, we finally called in the experts. Retic Renovation exceeded our greatest hopes for lawn redemption. The owner Luke was prompt in meeting with us and in an unbelievably short time, found the all important retic isolation valve that in years of digging had never been located. Luke investigated all sections of the reticulation, repaired all faults, and tidied up all areas that had been worked on. To finish, Luke provided us with helpful advice and recommendations for keeping our reticulation spot on. We cannot recommend Retic Renovation more highly.
If you’re looking for a precise job, with the experience to back it up, Luke is the person in Perth to contact. He’s passionate about making beautiful gardens in Perth for families to enjoy. We have relied on his experience and advice over the years to maintain an optimal full-garden solution. What we really appreciate is that he is upfront and honest, and provides all the details for his clients to make a well-informed decision. We will always return to Luke for our landscaping and retic needs.
