Winterization steps for sprinklers and hoses

Barring an Indian summer, it’s time to get your sprinkler system, hoses, and outdoor spigots ready for winter.  Prolonged freezes may be rare in the Mid-Atlantic region, but they do happen and can easily cause broken pipes in your home or yard.  Here are steps you should take now to avoid a wet winter later.

  1. Turn off the water supply to your sprinklers and outdoor faucets.
  2. Open spigots an turn on sprinklers to drain remaining water.
  3. Drain hoses and store them in a dry place.
  4. Use an air compressor to blow the remaining water out of your sprinklers.

Taking precautionary measures in the fall will let your rest easy in the winter and will ensure your equipment is ready to go in the spring.  If you don’t have the time or equipment to take these steps, contact us.  We’ll winterize your system with no mess or hassle.
