The Sprinkler Winterization Process
It’s important to winterize your sprinkler system before the first frost of the year. This is because the water in the pipes could freeze over or create a buildup of ice that could create extensive damage to your sprinkler pipes.
At Raintech Sprinkler Repair, our technicians can winterize your pipes by using a 2-step process:
- Manual Draining: Our experts will shut off the backflow valve so no water will go into your home before opening the manual drain valve on your sprinkler system. With the help of gravity, the valve allows the water to flow out of the pipes.
- Blowout Pipes: After the water has been flushed out, we will use compressed air to push out any lingering water. Once the pipes have been blown out, we set the timer to open the system one zone at a time. As each sprinkler head pops up, it will expel any remaining water and we flood the pipes with compressed air one last time to ensure all the water has left the pipes.
Depending on which type of system you have, our technicians will assess your sprinkler system to determine how to go about clearing your pipes of water. Our Lehi sprinkler winterization professionals always take the time to assess all sections of your system carefully before any work takes place. Our process ensures that your system will clear of all water for the winter.
