Winterizing Sprinkler Systems Helps You Avoid Springtime Complications
You don’t have to wonder about winter weather in New England. It’s always extremely cold. Before the first arctic blast blows through your yard, remember that your sprinkler system requires service. Winterizing sprinkler systems can be tedious work, especially if you’re trying to figure out how to do it yourself. You have to know what to do and you must also know how to do it. You must also make sure that you have the equipment to do it right.
Removing all the water from your system is the primary winterization task. If water remains inside your pipes and other sealed components, it will freeze and expand. As the temperature plunges, ice will crack your pipes and backflow preventers. It may also damage your sprinkler heads. Without the proper preventative care, you’ll find yourself planning a very expensive repair job when springtime weather arrives.
Winterizing sprinkler systems doesn’t have to be overly complicated. Simply call Fournier Irrigation and we’ll do it for you. Our skilled technicians know every component of your sprinkler system. We understand what your sprinkler system needs to get through the icy winter without having an expensive accident.
