Sprinkler Winterization & Irrigation Blowouts
Winterization Sprinkler Specials Start In October
Why Winterize Your Sprinklers?
In Denver, it’s important to remove the water from sprinkler heads, pipes, and valves before freezing occurs. When water freezes, it expands which can cause your irrigation pipes to burst and break, leaving you with an expensive spring project. Eliminate the hassle of winterizing your irrigation system by calling CS Sprinklers. We’ll schedule you with one of our fast and reliable sprinkler service technicians.
Pressure Vacuum Breaker (BackFlow) Draining Procedure for Freeze Protection.
Your Sprinkler System has six major components. The Main Shut-Off Valve (#1) and Interior Drain (#1 a) are located in the basement. The Vacuum Breaker (style may vary) (#2) is located outside. The Automatic Control Valves (#3) are installed outside underground with a valve box around them providing protection and accessibility. The Manifold Drain (#4) may be a manual type or a self-draining type, and it is installed in or near the valve box. The Controller (clock) (#5) activates the Automatic Control Valves (#3) causing the Sprinkler Heads (#6) to distribute water. This device is located either in the basement or the garage. Minor changes may be made depending on the homeowners’ requirements. Proper maintenance will increase the life of your sprinkler system. It is strongly recommended that you have the irrigation system professionally winterized with compressed air. However, until you are able to do so, follow these steps to minimize sprinkler damage caused by freezing temperatures.
