Irrigation: Fall/Winter Shutdown Service

Fall / Winter Sprinkler Blowout Services For Commercial & Residential Irrigation Systems

It is important to winterize your irrigation sprinkler system by getting a blow out every fall

A sprinkler blowout is necessary in the fall so that your irrigation system does not get ruined by winter’s harsh temperatures. The last thing that you want is your sprinkler system’s pipes cracking. This does not make for a pleasant surprise once spring rolls around. Even if you think that you have drained your sprinkler system, there can still be water left in the pipes that will be susceptible to freezing in winter. That’s why it is important to have a professional do the job for you. At Firmly Rooted, we have years of experience winterizing both commercial and residential irrigation systems.

Blowing out a sprinkler system can actually be dangerous, which is why it is best to have an expert perform this service. An air compressor is used that utilizes great strength that can be harmful to various body parts, especially the eyes. The process includes shutting off both the water supply and the system’s backflow valves. Once the compressor is hooked up, air must be slowly released into the sprinkler system.

There is also a specific order in which you should blow out the system, zone by zone, which varies on a case-by-case basis. It is also important that you do not continue to pump air into the system after it is dry, as that can cause heat damage. Furthermore, it is also imperative that all valves are not shut off at once while the air compressor is still running, as this can damage the entire system.

At Firmly Rooted, our expert landscapers know how to blow out a sprinkler system properly. We can ensure that your irrigation pipes will not freeze this winter. Don’t jeopardize the investment you’ve already made in your sprinkler system by not winterizing it before the first freeze. If your irrigation system freezes, it will be a big expense and a big inconvenience to dig up your whole yard in order to get it fixed. Contact us today for your fall blow out and rest assured that you’ll be ready to water your lawn come spring!
