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!

BUY or LEASE Your Holiday Lights:

what is the BEST option for you?

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?

NEVER Lock in & NEVER Pre-pay!

NEVER Lock in & NEVER Pre-pay!

How many people out there like to sign long term service contracts and pre-pay for yearly services? Over our years in business, we at Pacific Lawn Sprinklers have learned that clients do NOT like to lock into maintenance service contracts or pre-pay for services. We can understand why- service contracts often have exclusions and stipulations, you can end up paying for services you don’t actually need, and the level of quality customer service usually decreases over time. Maintenance service contracts often include spring turn on and winterization visits, monthly inspections and service visits.

Is your Drinking Water Protected?

Is your Drinking Water Protected?

A backflow prevention valve on a lawn sprinkler or drip irrigation system can come in many types and brands. Each device offers an additional level of protection against the possible chance of the irrigation water from backing up into and contaminating your domestic drinking (potable) water. More and more frequently, water companies are mandating that the backflow preventer on your irrigation system be tested once a year to ensure its proper operation.
