Why schedule a fall blowout?
Freezing temperatures can do some major damage to a sprinkler system that still has water in its pipes; so winterizing will help you avoid potentially costly repairs. Here is how the experts at Classic Lawnscape can help prepare sprinkler systems for the months ahead:
- Turn off the water that feeds your lawn sprinkler system. After locating the master shut-off valve we will be actively preventing water from massing within your pipes.
- Drain the remaining water from the sprinkler system. Your hose bib will be pried open to allow free flow. A bucket will catch all of the water that runs from your pipes.
- An air compressor will be employed to drain the overall network. After choosing the area of your lawn that is furthest out from your home, we will work our way back in towards it. Your sprinklers will run for two to three minutes, allowing all water to drain properly.
