Sprinkler System Winterization
At Interstate Irrigation and Lighting we are highly skilled at sprinkler system winterization, an action that is necessary for all sprinklers. If you have a sprinkler system, you know that they are a great way to keep your lawn and garden looking healthy. In addition, a sprinkler system is very easy and does not waste water. However, once the weather turns cold a very serious problem could occur if your sprinkler system does not follow a winterization process. Something like a sprinkler system winterization is too delicate a process to allow amateurs to do; allow us to keep your sprinkler system safe during the winter season.
The longevity of your sprinkler system is oftentimes a direct result of how well you take care of it. A well maintained sprinkler system that has been annually winterized should last 20 years or more with a few minor repairs along the way. If your sprinkler pipes freeze during the winter because they were not properly winterized, there is a high chance that your pipes will either crack or your sprinkler head will become damaged. If any of these happen you will suffer heartache and costly bills, and the worst part about it is that it all could have been avoided.
Sprinkler system winterization is a standard process and we make sure that the job is done correctly. To start, the water supply to the sprinkler system is turned off. All of the sprinkler lines are then filled with compressed air to expel any of the excess water that may be in the pipes. The next step in the winterization process is to open all of the system drain valves in order to free any remaining water that may be trapped inside. Above ground valves and other devices are stopped or insulated so that they remain intact and unharmed during the winter.
Sprinkler system winterization is a vital process that needs to be done annually if you want to maintain your sprinkler system. For a job that is thorough and professional, contact Interstate Irrigation and Lighting today.
