Many homeowners wonder if winterization is a needed service for their irrigation system. As with any other investment for your home, maintenance is the answer to long term functionality.
Winterizing your system each year provides several benefits, with financial savings being one of the most valued. During colder weather, any water left in the irrigation system pipes, valves and other components can expand during a hard freeze and crack or damage the system. This could prove costly to repair. By winterizing the system it can prolong the life of your valves and your system as a whole!!
Some people believe that here in the south, we usually don’t have cold enough weather to impact their irrigation system. However, since the pipes are buried just below ground, they can be impacted from a good few days of freezing weather!
Our winterizing appointment will include a member of our staff shutting down and draining each valve. We will also ensure the system itself is completely shut down to prevent any freeze damage.
