WINTERIZING MY SPRINKLER SYSTEM

At the end of the lawn season, your irrigation system will need to be “blown
out” and winterized by a professional. This process is necessary to make sure
all water is removed from the irrigation lines to avoid freezing.  If
winterization to your irrigation system is not done properly, water will remain
in the lines and in other components.  If this happens, the pipes will
freeze and burst, causing extensive damage to the whole system. This can be
very costly to you as the homeowner.

Before arriving, our trained technicians will provide you instructions on
how to turn off the water supply to the irrigation system.  This process
will prepare your sprinkler system for winterization.  Once we are on your
property, we will use a commercial air compressor to thoroughly blow out your
irrigation system, one zone at a time. 

Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. wants to help you protect your investment.  Contact us today to schedule your sprinkler winterization appointment or for more information, please visit our irrigation

2022 SPRINKLER BLOW OUT SERVICE

If you own an underground irrigation system, you will need to have it winterized at the end of the lawn watering season. If you have it done too soon, your lawn can dry out, and if you wait too long, your pipes can definitely freeze.  The best time to have a sprinkler blowout service performed is in October.

There are many phrases you will find for the process of winterizing your irrigation system. Here are a few listed below:

  • Sprinkler blow out service
  • Blowing out your irrigation system
  • Winterizing my sprinkler system
  • Lawn sprinkler blow out
  • Winterization for your lawn irrigation system
  • Blowing out sprinkler lines
  • Lawn sprinkler winterization

No matter which phrase you use, this process is a necessity and needs to be done every year to protect your irrigation system from freezing.  Only a professional company with extensive experience should be performing your irrigation winterization service.  Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. has over 30 years of experience and will use high pressure air compressors to “blow out” your sprinkler system.  We will make sure all water is removed from the irrigation pipes and will prepare your system for the winter.
