Q: I live in an area where sprinkler systems need to be winterized. What will my contractor do to my system to prepare it for freezing temperatures?
A: Winterizing sprinkler systems in cold climates is a necessity and must be done correctly to be effective. We typically begin "blow outs" in mid to late September, and complete them by early November. Even if you have drained the water from your system, residual water can freeze and crack pipes.
Q: When can I start my sprinklers in the spring?
A: Wait until any chance of freezing weather has passed. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the time you first mow your lawn.
