Bob Darnall started his own sprinkler business in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 1975. Eight years later he established Alpine Sprinklers in Wenatchee, Washington. With only a pick and shovel, he began working alone, installing residential sprinkler systems. His number-one priority was to deliver professional sprinkler systems. He would cut out strips of sod, dig narrow ditches, install pipe and sprinkler heads, rake the dirt back, put the sod back, and level it with the lawn. Customers were impressed at the even coverage, head to head overlap design, and minimal damage done to the yard.
As the business grew, Bob began installing systems for summer homes near Lake Chelan. By this time, he had purchased a pipe puller to help install the pipe in the lawn areas much faster. By 1988, business had reached a peak, and he moved to Issaquah to expand his business. Bob continued working as a one man operation for six more years, until his Chiropractor urged him to stop digging.
GROWTH & TRANSITION
As the business began to grow in the 1990s, Bob was able to hire several guys who became long-time crew members. The crew offers journeyman level service with over 15 years of experience working together.
Behind the scenes are Bob's wife and her much appreciated assistant. Together, they strive to provide excellent customer service with prompt call backs and scheduling. Bob stays busy, designing new installations, overseeing the crew and following through with warranty issues. He is also a certified backflow assembly tester.

"Twice we have hit sprinkler heads in our pallet racks recently. John and his team came in minutes. Very happy with their work. They also did two mezzanine projects for us. Very impressed."
"Wow! After having lived in Arizona, where I had sprinkler systems put in at each house, I'm use to the path of destruction left behind. That was NOT the case with Alpine. The crew that came out were very nice, pleasant, and EXTREMELY respectful of our property."

"This was a large job, 17 zones total, plus low-voltage lighting along my front pathway. Bob was prompt in responding, and great to work with on laying out the design."
