At The Sprinkler Company Inc., we provide winterization services for all types of irrigation systems. The process of winterization services, or closing, involves removing all water from the system using a powerful air compressor. We then turn off the timer and tap, and your sprinkler system will be safe for the winter. It is important to not open the outdoor tap or start the system after winterization has been completed.
All sprinkler systems need to be winterized in order to minimize the risk of freeze damage. During the cold winter months, the remaining water freezes and may crack small parts of the irrigation system. Delicate sprinkler valves are most prone to freeze damage and may leak once the system is started again in spring. If this happens, repairs will be required for the system to run properly again.
The Sprinkler Company has several powerful air compressors that are used to completely expel all the water from the irrigation systems. The timer is then shut off and the outside tap is closed for the winter. The sprinkler system is then considered closed down.
