Even if you have drained some water out of the system, the remaining water can freeze, expand and crack the rigid or flexible piping. Freezing water in the backflow assembly will damage the internal components and could possibly crack the brass body, causing significant damage to your system and requiring costly repairs. Schedule a sprinkler blowout to limit your chances of frozen pipes this winter.

 

To minimize the risk of freeze damage to your irrigation system, you’ll need to winterize your irrigation system. Irrigation systems in areas where “winterization” is mandatory are installed using one of three types of water removal in mind: manual drain, auto drain, or sprinkler blowout. If you don’t know your¬†system type, it would be best to use the sprinkler blowout method.

How is the sprinkler blowout performed?

 

Please note that the sprinkler blowout process can be very dangerous if not performed properly. Compressed air can cause serious injury from flying debris. It’s recommended to contact a qualified licensed contractor to perform your sprinkler blowout to reduce the likelihood for personal injury and property damage. Lawn Care Plus has been performing sprinkler blowout services for over 20 years!

 

The sprinkler blowout process utilizes an air compressor attached to the mainline with a line coupler. Your technician will activate each station on the system and the air to evacuate the remaining water in the irrigation lines.

 

Remember that too much pressure can cause significant damage and will create the possibility of personal injury, but too little pressure will not properly winterize your system. It is recommended to contact an experienced irrigation professional to perform this service. We have sprinkler technicians ready to assist with your blowout this fall.
