Time to Winterize!

As the season winds down and cold weather starts to set in, it becomes time to winterize your irrigation system.
Every year, the ritual of irrigation “blow out” becomes the priority for all irrigation systems that are in parts of the country where the frost level extends below the depth of the installed piping.

Sprinkler system winterization is a standard process, and we always ensure that the job is done properly.

“. . .we always ensure that the job is done properly.”

The goal of the winterization process is to open all of the system drain valves in order to release any remaining water that may be trapped inside.  First, the water flow to the sprinkler system is shut off. All of the sprinkler lines are then filled with compressed air to get rid of any extra water that may be still lingering in the pipes.

The durability of your sprinkler system is determined by the care it is given. 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 heads will become damaged.

Sprinkler system winterization is a very important process that needs to be done each year if you want to maintain your sprinkler system.

The location of your irrigation system determines the approach needed for your winterization.  RB Irrigation also offers winterization options for your: Cabana, pool house, outdoor shower, dock line, and hose bib line.  Call RB Irrigation for help with the details.
