Why do I need to winterize My sprinkler system and how is it done?
All sprinkler systems need to be winterized as early in the fall as possible starting as soon, as early October. The reason that your sprinkler needs to be winterized is because any water that is left in the sprinkler lines can freeze. This can cause major damage to the entire system cracking and splitting of the pipes. If the system sustains this kind of freeze damage, the repairs can be very costly and extensive, sometimes in the case of extreme winter weather the damage may be beyond repair.
The professional way that we winterize your sprinkler system is by using a commercial, high volume air compressor. We push air through the lines at low pressure ensuring that all sprinkler parts, are free of water. Winterizing your system will give you the peace of mind that you will have a sprinkler system, ready to be reopened in the spring.
