Installing a sprinkler system requires a significant investment, so you will naturally want to get the best results from your system once it’s in place. We at Laurdane Associates are here to help you achieve this goal—we offer a full range of sprinkler and irrigation services to ensure your system delivers optimal results. In our experience, one of the most important things you can do to get the best long-term results from your sprinklers is to prepare the system properly for winter. We encourage you to keep reading to learn why lawn sprinkler winterization is important.
- Prevent Damage to Pipes – The process of lawn sprinkler winterization involves letting water flow out of the irrigation lines. This ensures the pipes will not get damaged when the ground freezes—if the water were still inside, it would expand as it turned to ice, which would crack the pipes and cause lines to burst.
- Prevent Damage to Sprinkler Heads – Similarly, lawn sprinkler winterization protects your sprinkler heads from freeze damage. We’ll make sure no water remains inside the sprinkler heads, so there will be nothing inside to freeze once the temperatures drop.
- Save Money – Proper lawn sprinkler winterization protects your irrigation system from damage, which, in turn, saves you money. The damage caused by water freezing inside your sprinkler heads or lines is often irreparable, meaning those components will need to be replaced. Replacing parts of your sprinkler system is a serious and expensive hassle, so we want to help you avoid having to do so.
This winter, give us a call so we can winterize your lawn sprinklers.
