Do You Have Self-Winterizing Sprinklers?
While some sprinkler systems can “self-winterize” to get through small frosts, they still need a high pressure blow out in the fall to ensure they’ll be safe through our extreme winters.
However, exactly how high that pressure needs to be depends on a few factors, including type of sprinkler system and types of pipes. If you just moved in, you may not know what kind of sprinkler pipes the previous homeowners chose. PVC, poly pipes, or something else?
Each kind of pipes have different pressure tolerances. Not enough PSI and there will still be water left, too much and you’ll crack the pipes. A professional sprinkler technician can tell you what kind of pipes you have, and clean out your pipes with truck-mounted compression systems that deliver just the right pressure.
It’s always best to trust the professionals if you want your sprinkler system to last. If you’re planning on getting sprinkler winterization in Littleton, call us soon, so we can get you on our schedule.
