What Does Winterizing Your Irrigation System Involve?
Winterizing your irrigation system is a comprehensive service that prepares your sprinkler and irrigation components for the freezing temperatures of winter. Our expert services at Hughes Landscaping include:
- Shutting off the water supply to the irrigation system
- Evacuating all the water from the irrigation pipes, sprinklers, and valves
- Inspecting for any potential repairs that may be needed before the cold sets in
- Assessing and protecting backflow preventers and controllers
Why is Winterization Essential for Your Irrigation System?
Failure to properly winterize your system can lead to:
- Cracked Pipes and Fittings: Water expands when it freezes, causing damage to pipes and fittings that can be costly to repair.
- Damage to Sprinkler Heads and Valves: Ice formation can also damage sprinkler heads and valves, leading to malfunctioning in the spring.
- Increased Risk of Backflow: Water left in the system can freeze and cause backflow issues, potentially contaminating your potable water supply.
