Bob Darnall started his own sprinkler business in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 1975.  Eight years later he established Alpine Sprinklers in Wenatchee, Washington. He began working on his own, installing residential sprinkler systems with only a pick and shovel.  His top priority was to deliver professional quality sprinkler systems.  He would cut out strips of sod, dig narrow ditches, install the 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.

The transition began with breakfast as usual at the 12th Ave. cafe. Bob noticed a particular bus boy with an incredible work ethic. Juan was the first of many Ramirez brothers who would enhance our business. Saul Ramirez joined us in 1998 and heads up our service and repair. References? not a problem ... there are hundreds of them. Our motto "if Saul can't fix it, no one can" Toby Ramirez joined us in 2004 and has quickly become a customer preference in his own right.

Co-coordinating it all (behind the scenes), are Bob's wife Kim, and her much appreciated assistant, Delores. Together, they strive to provide excellent customer service with prompt call backs and scheduling.

Bob stays busy, estimating and designing new installations, overseeing the crew and following through with warranty issues. He is also a certified Backflow assembly tester.

We are grateful for the growth in our business. For much appreciated referrals and loyal customers. We are grateful to our hard working crew and their dedication to the customers. We are proud of our 2010 and 2011 Angie's List Super Service Awards.
