Lawn Sprinkler System Winterization & Startup
During winter, it is necessary to winterize your sprinkler system so that it is protected from damage. You need to ensure several things so that your lawn sprinkler system is always in excellent working condition.
In areas where there are freezing winters, the weather will affect outdoor plumbing, including sprinkler systems. Our specially trained team of plumbers will carry out the winterizing process and, after that, the startup process. Routinely winterizing and maintaining your system will ensure you save the cost of repairing broken pipes for an incorrectly done winterizing job.
It is best to have a certified plumbing company carry out the winterization to ensure that it is done correctly. If it is not, it can cause expensive repairs later during the springtime because the cold weather will damage the pipes.
Draining All the Water from The Pipes
The process of winterizing your sprinkler system will include shutting down the sprinkler system. It begins by draining all the water from all the pipes. If water is left in them, it may cause the pipes underground to freeze, then expand, and eventually burst.
The surface of the pipes is not large enough to bear the pressure of the frozen water, and over time, this causes them to burst. The Plumber Guys will winterize your entire irrigation system and any other garden-related plumbing. Then, in the spring, we will start your system up and make sure it is running correctly.
There are different types of lawn and garden plumbing systems, with some being automatic and others manual. The valves on each system vary, and our experienced plumbers know how to work with all of them.
We will ensure that the pipes do not have any leakages or other issues that worsen over the winter. We will repair all plumbing problems and leaks before winterizing. This page will give you more information about our services
Using the proper Tools
Our professional technicians are trained on how to use specific tools that help with a perfect winterizing job. We will completely remove all the water from the pipes to ensure that they will not be damaged. This is not an easy task to complete if you do not have the necessary tools.
We have tools that drain all the water in the pipes. We use air compressors that push pressurized air through the lines, and the compressed air pushes out any water in the pipes and sprinkler heads, making them dry and empty over the winter months.
Our plumbers know exactly how to use the air compressors so that the pressurized air does not damage the pipes or sprinkler heads. If the air compressor pressure is not set right, it can crack your pipes.
Before using your sprinkler system or other garden plumbing again, you must properly assess the system and check for any problems. Even with winterizing, there can be some damage caused by frigid weather. We will send out a certified technician in the spring to check the lawn sprinkler system to prevent further damage if something went wrong during the winter months.
This damage can be minor leaks, or the sprinkler system wiring could have developed an electrical problem. We can repair these minor issues, and it will be far cheaper than replacing an entire pipe or wiring system.
As the winter approaches, getting your garden plumbing system ready for the winter months is imperative. Call The Plumber Guys for professional winterizing and proper startup of your garden sprinkler systems. For more information go to calltheplumberguys.com. We look forward to working with you!
