Sprinkler Winterization in Idaho

Just like most of the plumbing in your home, your sprinkler system needs to be protected during the winter months. The sprinkler system includes various fittings, pipes, valves, and other parts that can crack during freezing temperatures. If the sprinkler system suffers damage during the winter, this can lead to costly repairs. Rexburg sprinkler winterization can help you avoid these repairs and ensure that your sprinkler is in full functioning order once springtime returns.

Damage to Your Sprinkler

Often, water is trapped in the sprinkler head itself and when the water freezes, it expands. This can cause the sprinkler head to loosen, crack, or pop-off. There is also a mechanism inside the sprinkler that regulates the pop-up, which can also freeze and burst and this will lead to the head permanently being stuck in the ground. Doing Rexburg sprinkler winterization can help to ensure that your sprinkler head remains in good shape, and all the water has been evacuated. In addition to your sprinkler head, the manifold and lines that run to your sprinkler can become damaged if the water and these pipes are left to become frozen. Expansion of the frozen water can cause leaks and cracks and this may lead to the entire system needing to be replaced, which can be quite costly.

How Sprinklers are Winterized

To do proper sprinkler winterization in Rigby, the pipes must be fully evacuated of water because even the smallest amount of water may cause damage to the sprinkler system. While you can winterize your sprinkler system yourself, it is best to hire a professional company that knows all about the sprinkler system. You may miss a connection or line connected to your sprinkle system, leading to you having to call a professional out to repair it when you go to use it again.
