Brrrr....

Utah is known for it's extreme cold spell that can do a lot of damage to roads, homes and yes SPRINKLER SYSTEMS and PIPES.  To lessen the chance of unwelcome irrigation repair surprises in the spring, following are some winterizing tips. While some homeowners will feel they can winterize themselves, others may be more comfortable having it done by an irrigation professional like ACG Sprinklers.

The main purpose of winterizing a sprinkler system is to keep components from breaking. Damage occurs when water freezes and expands inside sprinklers, pipes and valves. Therefore, enough water has to be drained from the system to prevent breakage before cold weather hits.

“How much drainage is enough?” The general rule of thumb is more than 50% of the water should be drained to protect a sprinkler system from freeze damage, but since water may collect in some areas rather than draining evenly, a system is not completely free of the risk of freezing as long as any water remains.  Therefore, the best way to winterize an irrigation system is to mechanically introduce air into the system to push the water out.  This method is called “blowing out” the sprinkler system.  However, many systems locally are not equipped for this and for safety reasons, it is best done by someone familiar with the process.
