A Full Service Irrigation and Drainage Contracting Company.
Glenn M. Gross was just 24 years old in 1992 - with only ten months of experience – when he bought Precipitation Unlimited Inc.. 23 years later, he still runs the business in the same “old school” method that he was taught. “Building relationships is what we do. Irrigation and drainage are just the services we offer”..... and he is dead set on never changing the company’s philosophy on that. The company prides itself on the number one point that is usually the first nail in the coffin to a small business. “WE RETURN PHONE CALLS!”
The company can design and install an underground irrigation system for any application – residential or commercial - and prides itself on paying attention to the details and making sure everything is done exactly as promised while even exceeding expectations. The company provides free estimates for new installation and rejects the notion of high-pressure sales tactics for accessory items that may not be needed. “When designing and installing an irrigation system, we use a good old common sense approach on how to maximize the coverage and lessen the overall demand for water which reduces the strain on the resource and softens the impact on the end consumer’s wallet for their water bill. That’s where 23 years of experience comes in handy” Gross says.
The company also specializes in troubleshooting and repairs to existing systems. Gross says he loves going onto a property that has an irrigation or drainage system he did not originally install, where the customer is experiencing an issue and can’t get their normal contractor to respond. “I see that scenario far too often but I love the challenge of trouble-shooting and resolving the problem, however small or complex; especially when no one else can or will. It helps keep your skills sharp and I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction knowing that we helped make the customer happy. Its creating that relationship and fostering it by being available the next time we’re needed that continues to perpetuate us in the marketplace. Yes, we’re all out here to earn a living, but the customer just wants someone they can depend on”. And the direct referral network rolls on!
