Most people don’t think about having their lawn sprinkler system winterized until it’s too late. By then, it’s often already too cold outside for a professional to come and do the job, and you might end up having to deal with some costly damages caused by the cold weather. But what if there was a way to avoid all that? By having your lawn sprinkler system winterized by Spartan Irrigation before the first freeze, you can avoid any potential damages that might be caused by the cold weather.
What Is Lawn Sprinkler System Winterization, and Why Is It Important?
Lawn sprinkler system winterization is the process of preparing your lawn sprinkler system for winter. This includes draining or blowing air through lines to clear the water out of the pipes, draining back the exposed pipes or valves, deactivating the controller, and winterizing surface irrigation pumps. Why is it important to have your lawn sprinkler system winterized? Because if you don’t, the cold weather can cause a number of costly damages. Pipes can freeze and burst, valves can crack, and the entire system can become damaged. By having your lawn sprinkler system winterized by a professional, you can avoid all of this.
