We are no longer accepting new clients for 2016 Winterization Services.
We hope you have had a successful watering season! Please select one of the pre-scheduled dates for your service area from the calendar to the right. We have early, middle or late options in both October and November. If you do not know your service area please give our office a call.
This year we have included an option of adding an insulation bag to the backflow preventer assembly. This protects the assembly from cracking when subject to freezing temperatures. Please indicate if you would like this protection added during the service. The cost of an insulation bag is $8.
Remember we have options in October and November. If you prefer to have your system winterized later please look at the November schedule. We will begin winterizations October 3rd and finishing up on November 22nd.
Confirm your winterization below by filling out the contact form below and include which pre-scheduled date works best for you.
The following are some common questions regarding winterizations:
1. Why do I need to winterize my irrigation system?
To minimize the risk of freeze damage you will need to winterize your irrigation system. In areas where winterization is mandatory, irrigation systems will be installed with a method of water removal. If you don't know your system type, it is best to use the blowout method. Water expands as it turns into ice, resulting in a larger expansion sufficient to crack pipes, fittings, valves, and sprinkler heads that are made of brass, rigid plastic, and steel. This normally happens during long stretches of below freezing temperatures.
2. What is the cost to winterize my irrigation system?
Pricing is based on how many zones and pumps your irrigation system has. Please call our office for pricing.
3. Do I need to turn my irrigation system off and what do I need to do to prepare for winterization?
You can turn your controller to the off position prior to the day of your scheduled winterization and uncover your valve boxes. Please make sure your dog is out of the way to ensure safety for the technicians.
Let us know about anything out of the ordinary.
4. Do I need to be home?
Normally you do not need to be home if we can access your valve box from the outside.
5. Do we need to have access to the controller?
If we cannot access the valve box outside we will need to access the controller.
