Winterizing Help

Freezing weather can sneak up with little warning, but with a bit of know-how, you can protect your system from preventable damage!

Please take the following steps to protect your home and irrigation system.

  1. Turn Off All Water to The Irrigation System
  2. Drain The Backflow Preventer and Supply Line
  3. Wrap and Insulate the Backflow Preventer
    • Building insulation, heavy down comforters, and sleeping bags provide excellent insulation properties.
    • Wet insulation is no insulation. Make sure to waterproof the material with a heavy tarp or yard trash bag. 
  4. Contact Lawn Care Plus to perform a blowout of your buried sprinkler lines.

  1. Open All Valves
  2. Allow Water to Gravity Drain
  3. Position Valves at 45°
Our friends at Swingle created this video to demonstrate the process:
