Why You Should Winterize Your Sprinkler System?
While in some regions of the country the weather is mild enough to allow a sprinkler system to be ran throughout the year, anyone who has ever lived in Town and Country knows that our climate simply does not permit that to happen. Here in the Midwest, it is fairly common for temperatures to go below freezing as early as November. Therefore, if you have an inground sprinkler system, properly readying it for the cold winter months is crucial to avoid pipe breakage, leaks, and substantial maintenance costs.
Even though your Town and Country, MO sprinkler system is not being used during these winter months, small, leftover amounts of water can sit in the pipes and lines buried beneath your yard. During }freezing|cold} weather, these small droplets expand and can cause sprinkler lines to leak or crack. Both PVC and copper/metal lines are prone to these cracks, and when the system is restarted in the spring, the high water pressure of a underground sprinkler systems makes these pipes burst. As well, even 24 hours of freezing temperatures with water in a sprinkler system can affect the backflow preventer that every sprinkler system is mandated to have.
As one would expect, fixing these broken pipes is a costly, time-intensive process that often means that all or part of your Town and Country, MO lawn must be dug up. This only inflates the cost of repairs as now you not only have to pay for upkeep on your sprinkler system, but also for your lawn to be fixed. While calling a sprinkler winterization service now may seem like a useless expense, it is nothing compared to what happens when you do not properly prepare your sprinkler system for colder months.
How Our Town and Country Sprinkler Winterization Service Works
Lawn Sprinklers of St. Louis uses the "air blowout" method to winterize Town and Country-area irrigation systems. Like its name suggests, it uses compressed air to expel all remaining water out of a system to ensure that nothing is left in the lines when the weather gets colder. All valves, heads, and pipes, in addition to the backflow converter, are shot through with air to leave them clear of any water and ready to be shut off.
Sounds easy? Actually, it's a bit complicated. Too much air used, or too high of air pressure, can damage a sprinkler system itself, whereas low-pressure or insufficient air can leave some excess water around in your sprinkler lines. Our licensed and experienced technicians know the exact, precise amount of air and air pressure needed for all makes and models of sprinkler system in Town and Country to ensure that all water is removed and you do not have to worry about your sprinkler lines freesing over the winter months.
