Winterizing Your Irrigation Systems and Tips on Finding the Right Contractor

Irrigation and sprinkler systems are part of your overall property value, so it is critical for homeowners to make sure that whomever you hire to winterize or blow out your sprinkler system will be able to guarantee the work in case there are issues when your system starts up again in the spring as the weather warms and the irrigation water is back on.  

Sprinkler blowoutBy not having your sprinkler system properly treated in preparation for the winter months, there is a potential risk with your system in the spring.  Broken irrigation pipes can cause severe damage not only to your sprinkler system, but to your property, especially your lawn, due to flooding.  To prevent such costly repairs and damage, we recommend homeowners to hire trained and experienced professionals to winterize your irrigation system.  

While there are many companies out there offering a low-cost irrigation blow out solutions, homeowners should ask the following questions: 

  1. How long has the contractor/company been in the sprinkler blow out business?
  2. Do they have insurance?
  3. Do they have business license?
  4. Do they guarantee the winterization of your irrigation and/or sprinkler systems against damage that may occur?
  5. Does the contractor have a website with reviews or online reviews about how they perform and stand behind their winterization work? 

Whatever you decide, it is important to act sooner rather than later. As the weather becomes colder, the longer you wait to get your system winterized, the higher the risk of frozen water in the pipes.
