Winterize your lawn sprinkler now and save in the spring!

As the cold winds of fall move in, along with the changing leaves and falling temperatures, it is once again time to think about winterizing your irrigation system or garden watering system. Here in the Northeast, winter delivers a steady bout of prolonged freezing temperatures that can damage the components of your lawn sprinkler system or drip irrigation system if not properly winterized. Costly repairs at the spring start up next season can be avoided if your irrigation lines are properly shut down, drained, and blown out with a regulated high volume air compressor.

Have you ever thought about the different offers for decorating holiday lights? Some companies offer a leasing option to install Christmas lights on your home and bushes every year for a set price. Most of the time it is a couple of thousand dollars, depending upon the size of the home and shrubs. This price will also include the company returning after the season, removing the lights, and storing them until next season. Sounds like a great option - right?

DO I REALLY NEED TO SPEND THE MONEY ON OPENING MY LAWN SPRINKLER SYSTEM?

INVESTMENT vs EXPENSE!

As Spring approaches, thoughts of starting up your automatic lawn sprinkler system become a priority. The health of your landscape is dependent upon the proper operation and watering schedule of your irrigation system. Contrary to popular belief, it requires a lot more than “just turning the valve” to correctly start up a lawn sprinkler system. The cost of hiring an irrigation professional is an investment, not an expense. Not only will you be assured that your system will be working at peak performance, but you will also be conserving water. Making sure that your system does not have any hidden leaks and is properly adjusted will far outweigh the minimal cost of the service visit.

Water Requirements for Your Lawn Sprinkler System during the Spring Season

Spring is the time of the year when your landscape is starting to emerge from the long cold winter season. The buds on the trees are finally starting to develop. The roots on your plants and grass are beginning  to grow again and plant life is regaining it’s beautiful vibrant colors.

At this time of the year your automatic lawn sprinkler system needs to be properly “started up” and reviewed. All repairs and alterations should be performed (by only a qualified irrigation technician) at this time to ensure your system is operating at its peak performance. The water duration and frequency of the watering cycles  (aka settings) should be programmed into the lawn sprinkler controller to deliver just the right amount of moisture during each irrigation cycle. Over watering at this time is a common problem and can severely hurt or diminish the growth  of your seasonal plantings and existing evergreens.

During the annual spring start up visit, Pacific Lawn Sprinklers will program your irrigation controller for the adequate amount of water required at this time of year. A complete inspection of all main lines, lateral lines, backflow preventers and electric solenoid valves will be performed. Each sprinkler head will be checked and adjusted to ensure proper coverage and operation.

When Should I Winterize My Lawn Sprinkler System?

As the fall season blows in, it is once again time to start thinking about winterizing your lawn sprinkler system! Lawn sprinkler winterization, also known as sprinkler shut down, fall closing, and winter blow out is the process of preparing your irrigation system for the cold winter months. The winterizing process will help to assure that the coming winter and freezing temperatures do not damage or compromise your sprinkler system’s components and piping.

The most popular question we get year after year is “When should I winterize my sprinkler system?”. October 1st thru December 15th (temperature permitting) is the optimal time window to winterize your irrigation system! While the weather plays quite a big role each year in determining when clients want to winterize their system, we strongly recommend winterizing your system during this time frame. The reason is because you want to winterize your sprinkler system BEFORE we experience several days of freezing cold temperatures, specifically below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. When temperatures drop below freezing, the water left inside in your sprinkler irrigation lines can freeze and cause extensive damage. Even if you have drained the water out of your irrigation system, some water will remain and can freeze, expand, and crack the PVC piping if your sprinkler system is not professionally winterized.

The second most popular question we get during the winterization season is “What exactly does Pacific do to winterize my sprinkler system?”. You are in good hands with Pacific Lawn Sprinklers’ team of professionals! All of the people on the Pacific Service Team are trained in the proper procedures to winterize any size underground lawn sprinkler or drip irrigation system. We will shut down all of the irrigation water supply sources and leave your clock in the “rest” position. A specialized air compressor paired with a regulator will then deliver the precise amount of compressed air (based on manufacturer specifications) that will correctly remove the residual water in all of the systems’ main lines, lateral lines, manifold and solenoid valves. The regulator eliminates over-charging a sprinkler line or drip line with too much air at one time. When properly performed, the sprinkler heads, solenoid valves and piping will not be compromised by excess pressure or friction by an improperly regulated air compressor. Your system is now ready with withstand the cold winter months!

Have we answered all of your questions, and are you ready to schedule your lawn sprinkler winterization? Pacific Lawn Sprinkler’s Service Department is ready to schedule your appointment! Please schedule an appointment conveniently online at www.pacificlawnsprinkles.com or give us a call at 888-438-7224. And remember, with Pacific, there is NEVER a contract and NEVER a prepayment!
