Sprinkler System Winterization Procedures:
homeowners believe the only steps to winterizing a sprinkler system is to
just turn the system off for the winter and maybe open the drain valve.
However, this practice still leaves the majority of your system full of
water and susceptible to breaks, leaks, and costly repairs. In order to
fully protect your system, we will take the following 8-step process to make
sure that your sprinkler system is fully protected:
Shut off water to your irrigation system via main gate valve. Tag
“SPRINKLER SYSTEM HAS BEEN WINTERIZED!
DO NOT TURN ON”
Drain backflow preventer (if applicable)
Attach Air compressor to mainline (125-185 CFM)
Manually open all electronic valves to allow compressed air force water
out of each zone
Keep valve solenoids and bleeder valves open for winter
Open test ports on backflow device in order to winterize backflow device
Close ball valves on backflow device and leave at 45º
Leave check-list on your door or mailed detailing the steps we took and
notes regarding your system
