AZ irrigation & maintenance

Brad Bippus founded AZ Irrigation & Maintenance in January of 2012 and he brings over 20 years of experience to the local Northern Arizona area. He has managed everything from small jobs to very large projects: involving residential customers needing a simple irrigation controller programming lesson, to major projects at large hotels, resorts, schools, townhomes and apartment complexes that have 50+ valves and acres of landscape.

Brad’s continued commitment to the environment and continuing education in his field has resulted in two national irrigation certifications: Certified Irrigation Contractor (CIC) and Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor (CLIA) through the Irrigation Association(a national nonprofit organization “dedicated to promoting efficient irrigation . . .

I had a leak that will cost me and they made time in their schedule to attend to it within the same day I called. I feel the service call fee was reasonable and they were tremendously helpful. Sent a video how to shut off the water in the mean time, before they knew when they could get to me.  Very personable from the start to the finish.

I have had Brad and AIM taking care of my irrigation system since the very beginning.  They are always professional, prompt, and do excellent work.  If I ever have an issue with my system or need a repair they are out the very next day, if not the same day. I recommend them to everyone and If I ever sell my house I am going to make sure the new owners know to call Brad and AIM for all of their irrigation needs.
