When we perform irrigation winterization, we ensure that every component is ready for colder weather.
Your home’s sprinkler system provides hydration to the lawn and other elements of the landscaping throughout much of the year. But as the temperatures drop and winter comes around, it’s important to make sure that this system is prepared for the colder weather. Irrigation winterization is a necessity and failing to do so can cause costly damage to your system. Water often gets trapped in the sprinkler heads, and if the temperature drops below freezing, that water will freeze and expand. The resulting pressure can cause the head of the sprinkler to break and pop off the body. Water can also freeze inside the sprinkler body, causing cracking and other damage. Even the mechanism that allows the sprinkler heads to go up and down can freeze and crack, resulting in the sprinklers getting stuck in the up or down position.
At Laurdane Associates, we specialize in irrigation systems and can provide this vital service to property owners throughout Raleigh, North Carolina. When we perform irrigation winterization, we ensure that every component is ready for colder weather. Our goal in providing irrigation winterization is to protect the system from damage that could be costly to repair come spring.
Specializing in Complex Irrigation Systems For Your Home
It’s best to schedule your winterization service at least a week before the temperature is slated to drop below freezing. We’ll drain the system by blowing out the lines, as well as shut off the water supply to prevent additional moisture from moving through your sprinklers.
