Getting The Sprinkler System Ready For Winter

The first thing most people will notice when approaching your home is the condition of the lawn. Finding the time to water a lawn by hand can be nearly impossible for a homeowner with a full-time job. The best way to ensure that this task is done on a consistent basis is by getting a sprinkler installed. With the winter months right around the corner, there are a variety of things you need to do to ensure your sprinkler system is protected during this colder part of the year.

Get an Inspection Done

Having sprinkler professionals come out and inspect your system before the cold of winter hits is important. They will be able to check for things like leaks or other repair issues that may lead to future problems. If there is a leak in your sprinkler system, you will need to get it addressed immediately. A leak can lead to the sprinkler pipes rupturing during a hard freeze. Professionals will be able to fix the leaks in no time at all.

Having the Sprinkler Heads Blown Out

Another important task that a professional will be able to handle for you is blowing out your sprinkler heads. Leaving even the slightest bit of water in the sprinkler heads over the winter months can lead to a lot of problems. The sprinkler professionals will be able to use air pressure to blow out the water in the system. They will also be able to detect any damage that exists with the sprinkler heads and fix them before they need to be used again.

With the right sprinkler company, you should have no problem getting your system ready for winter. If at all possible, you will need to hire the same company that installed the system due to the familiarity factor.
