Late Fall is the best time to get your sprinkler system winterized. If you think about it, irrigation and sprinkler systems help maintain your overall property value. When summer starts to come to an end and you have done the Fall lawn aeration, it is crucial to winterize or blow out your sprinkler system. That means you need to drain the water from your sprinkler system or you will likely experience costly freeze damage. By having your sprinkler system properly treated for winter, you decrease the chance of problems occurring in the spring. By not getting your systems treated you could face broken irrigation pipes which cause damage to your lawn due to flooding. To avoid such disasters, we highly recommend you hire professionals experienced and trained in sprinkler system blowouts.
