Sprinkler system winterization is a necessary task for keeping your system healthy!
Winterization involves several steps in order for the job to be done properly. This is done by: shutting off the water to the sprinkler system, draining the backflow prevention device, and having the backflow device and all valves blown out with compressed air.
Most homeowners have this done by a professional irrigation company. If you haven’t yet contacted anyone to do this, now is the time. You don’t want to have to repair or replace critical parts of your sprinkler system next Spring. Over the Winter, water in pipes, valves and the backflow device will freeze and expand, and will crack or break these parts.
Take good care of your investment.
