Getting Your Sprinkler System Ready For Spring
Signs of spring are in the air: warming weather trends, melting snow, chirping birds, and blooming flowers. Ah, signs of life after a long, cold Colorado winter. Another sign of spring is the maintenance that goes along with having an in-ground sprinkler system. Once warm weather arrives and there is no longer a chance of snow or freeze, it’s imperative to de-winterize your irrigation system. Just like you should have your sprinkler system winterized before the cold of winter arrives, you should also have your sprinkler system de-winterized once spring has sprung. The process does basically the opposite of a winter sprinkler blowout. Instead of clearing the lines of water, the sprinkler pipes are cleared of air.
1. Wait for the winter freeze to end.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult to predict the weather and forecasts. It’s not an exact science…heck, even meteorologists have difficulties and that’s what they’re paid to do. If you’re not sure, it’s best to wait until your yard is showing signs of water deficiencies. Remember, your lawn has had a pack of snow on it that slowly melted away, watering your grass naturally. If you’re still not sure, call the sprinkler professionals at CS Sprinklers. We’ll assess your lawn’s watering needs, ensure the watering cycles and stations are all on the right settings, check for leaks, and flush your sprinkler system of air and debris so that it works as expected.
2. Repair, replace, and install sprinkler heads.
After a long period of hibernation, it’s not uncommon for your sprinkler system to become damaged or clogged during the winter months. Everything from cars to burrowing animals can wreak havoc on your sprinkler heads and water lines. In order for a smooth spring activation, all sprinkler heads should be checked and, if needed, repaired, replaced, or cleaned before initializing your sprinkler system and watering routines. Depending on the type of sprinkler head, to clear a clog, you’ll need to pop up the riser, unscrew, and remove the filter. Remove any debris and thoroughly rinse the sprinkler head. If this is outside of your comfort zone, contact the lawn care experts at CS Sprinklers. With over 30+ years of experience combined with our professional service, we’ll make the task of spring activation a breeze.
