Sprinkler Repair Includes Winterizing Your Sprinkler System
Sprinkler repair is a job that is always professionally done by Landworks landscaping company. With colder weather on the horizon, winterizing your sprinkler system is important, and should always be done by professional, certified technicians. Landworks will help with winterizing your sprinkler system.
Maybe you’ve heard about winterizing your sprinkler system before and how it’s an important step when it comes to maintaining your system, but do you know how and why you should winterize your sprinkler system? Homeowners must properly prepare their yard before the cold weather hits. This way, the yard will remain as attractive as possible for the cold season and will be ready to flourish once the weather warms again, especially when using lawn care services with Landworks. One of the most important tasks to undertake is sprinkler winterization.
Sprinkler winterization is important because it will prevent frozen pipes and bursting valves. The one of the steps in sprinkler winterization is to shut off the water supply to your sprinkler system completely so that there is no longer even a trickle water flowing. The goal of sprinkler winterization is to make sure the pipes are completely dry. Any remaining moisture might freeze and damage your system.
Simply draining the water out of your sprinkler system or turning your sprinklers off may not be enough for Kansas City’s winter climate (especially if you have an above-ground backflow). We highly recommend that you “blow out” your system and remove ALL water from your pipes, because any remaining water can freeze, expand & crack pipes. Furthermore, frozen water in your backflow assembly may damage internal components and crack the brass body, resulting in costly repairs.
How it works… Landworks landscaping company’s BACKFLOW CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS will turn off your irrigation water supply and will “blow out” your system with an air compressor. The air compressor is attached to the main line and activates each zone blowing air through the system until all water is gone. This process will remove all remaining water from your pipes, giving you peace of mind that your underground system is safe from water freeze damages. Landworks has technicians that are experienced and prepared to get your sprinkler winterization done properly.
