Annual winterization of an irrigation system is a crucial part of responsible sprinkler maintenance. Without it, the long-term serviceability and overall reliability of the system are put at severe risk. Water remaining in an underground sprinkler system over the winter months will expand and possibly burst pipes, crack valves, break sprayers, and more. Unfortunately, much of this damage initially remains invisible and unnoticed when the system is restarted in the spring until unusually high water bills indicate the need for costly repair fees.

Professional Sprinkler Shutdowns

Hiring a proven team of professionals for sprinkler system shutdown is the best and most reliable way to ensure a sprinkler’s functional integrity next season. While some homeowners opt to just open the drain valves and let gravity do the work, this is not a truly effective way of removing all the water from a system. Even a very small amount of remaining moisture can cause expensive damage.

The KC Sprinkler Pros use specialized equipment for all irrigation winterizations, including high-volume air compressors that can be a challenge for the average homeowner to operate. Inexpert handling can cause a break in your sprinkler system or even cause injury to yourself or others.

Professional winterization involves systematically blowing out all the water in a system zone by zone. Once that is completed, the team performs a general maintenance audit to locate any problem areas or damage suffered during the summer. Then drains and valves are checked and secured for winter.

The KC Sprinkler Pros are available to complete winterizations of both residential and commercial irrigation systems.
