How To Protect Your System From Freezing Temperatures

While this is not a substitution for winterization this procedure may protect your system from incurring damage when temperatures go below freezing.  While this may help in the short term you will still need to have your system winterized.

     If your system has not been winterized yet and you are concerned about freezing temperatures damaging it, here are some tips to keep this from happening.

Preferred Method

    Your best option is to set the timer to water a remote area of your lawn in the middle of the night for a few minutes.  This will put warmer water into the pipes and keep them from freezing.  You must be careful about which zone you choose because ice will form and may be very dangerous on concrete and asphalt.  This is the easiest way to protect your pipes.

   It is important to know that all pipes, heads, valves, etc., that are buried underground will not be affected by short periods of cold temperatures.  The temperature must remain below freezing 24 hours a day for several days (4-7 days).  Unfortunately, most systems have piping above ground where the pipe comes out of the house.  Typically, if you have city water, your backflow "preventer" is located here.  If you have well water it will just be a pipe.  This is where we hook up to the system to winterize it and where you may have trouble.

For The Mechanically minded

    To keep the pipes and backflow from freezing, there are a few things you can do.  One option is to shut the water off inside and drain the pipes.  First, turn on a zone by the timer and then go shut the water off.  This will relieve the pressure and allow some water to drain from above ground pipes.  Where the pipe comes out of the wall, there will be a threaded fitting or a hose spigot.  The threaded fitting must be removed with adjustable pliers.  The hose spigot can simply be opened up.  This will allow the water to drain down.  Now turn the timer off and you should be just fine.

      A more expensive option is to buy heat tape and wrap the pipes with it.  Heat tape uses electricity so you would need to plug it in.

    Hopefully you are already scheduled for winterization and we will be taking care of your system shortly.  If you haven't scheduled an appointment, please do so as soon as possible.

Installations

We'll survey your property, then design an irrigation system that will provide your landscape with the proper amount of water.
To expedite this process you can fax over your plot plan or
property survey to (609) 567-1232.  This will allow us to begin
designing your free estimate....  Please indicate on plan any
structures such as fences, decks pools etc. Click Here to see
a short video of a custom install.

Our fully automatic irrigation systems also take advantage of watering at off-peak times, assuring your watering will have no impact on your neighbors or community. This also provides the best results for your landscape. There is less transpiration (evaporation) due to wind and heat. Getting more water to the root zone by using less! NO more dragging hoses and watering all day

We have recently begun to install iron removal systems manufactured by American Hydo Systems Inc.  These systems offer the finest quality iron removal products available on the market today. Visit American Hydo for more information on this innovative technology.

If you take care of your system it should last 20 years or more. Every system will have a head or a valve go bad due to age and natural wear and tear. But, these are minor compared to replacing a whole valve assembly and or copper repairs. Also, a system that is full of water when it freezes runs a great risk of pipe and sprinkler head damage. I could go on and on about why you should winterize your system. Save yourself money and misery, winterize every year!
