The season is fast approaching to winterize and or blow out your sprinkler system. What exactly does this mean and why is it so important for you to winterize? Often people can get a little confused as to why they need to blow out their system in the first place. So stop scratching your head and let’s go over quickly the importance of proper winterization and why it is so essential.
As winter approaches any long freezes can potentially damage your sprinkler system if water is left inside any of the pipes in or above ground. If water is left inside any of these pipes, it could freeze and expand, cracking or damaging pipes in the system or worse the Pressure Vacuum Breaker. These repairs can become costly during start up, but can all be avoided by blowing out your system.
