Irrigation System Winterization

Prepare Your Sprinklers for Freezing Temperatures

Looking to avoid some expensive repairs and lawn health care problems this spring? Give your irrigation and property the best chance of survival by teaming up with Heroes Lawn Care for irrigation winterization services. This essential service preps your drip irrigation or sprinkler system before the freezing temperatures set in, making sure that your irrigation system is fully functional come springtime.

How Is Irrigation Winterized?

Our irrigation winterization services include a comprehensive inspection and preparation of your irrigation system. Our licensed technicians use their expertise to carefully blowout and drain all water from the system to prevent freezing and potential damage during the colder months. Utilizing top-of-the-line technology, our professional crews implement a preventative approach to prevent winter issues and be ready for spring use!

When Should Winterization Be Done?

The optimal time for winterizing irrigation systems depends on the local climate and the first expected freeze. In colder regions, it's best to winterize before the first hard freeze, usually in late October or early November. In milder areas, this service may be done in late November or early December. At Heroes Lawn Care, we'll help determine the best time for your region and property.

Do I Need to Winterize My Sprinklers?

While you may be tempted to leave your irrigation system as is, not winterizing can result in costly repairs and potential damage to your lawn. 

Don't handle it alone. Trying to winterize your sprinklers without proper training and equipment can do more harm than good. Turn to professionals to avoid headaches and enjoy a worry-free winter, free of:

  • Cracked Pipes and Fittings: Like poorly insulated plumbing, water left in sprinkler systems can freeze and cause cracks in pipes and fittings. The damage is often unnoticed until spring.
  • Malfunctioning Sprinkler Heads: Leftover water in sprinkler heads can freeze, causing damage or malfunctions. The heads may not function properly come spring, leading to uneven watering and lawn growth issues.
  • Inefficient Water Use: Freezing damage can cause leaks and overwatering when the system is reactivated. This not only wastes water, contradicting our eco-friendly approach but also leads to waterlogging and other lawn health issues.

To avoid these issues and more, our team at Heroes Lawn Care offers a professional, eco-friendly approach to irrigation winterization. Our level of service is top-notch, and if you're not satisfied with the results – we'll do what we can to make it right!
