No matter where you live, it is important to have regular sprinkler blowouts conducted on your irrigation and sprinkler systems every winter. Periodic blowouts help to preserve the efficiency and longevity of your sprinkler system. In Greater Bend, Oregon, blowouts are vital as the frost level typically reaches the depth of sprinkler piping. If sprinkler system blowouts and winterization are not implemented, residual water left inside the pipes can freeze, expand, and ultimately crack the pipes.
Sprinkler System Start Up
4 Seasonal Services knows where your sprinkler system main shutoff and vacuum breaker valves are located and have the tools (when applicable) to operate them. We turn on the water slowly and pressurize it gradually so as not to cause a huge water hammer (shock wave caused by a sudden change in water flow by turning it on too quickly) which can in turn burst fittings or pop off sprinkler heads. After we have started up your sprinkler system we run a manual test and check the valves so we are ready to irrigate your lawn again.
Blowout Process to Winterize Your Sprinkler System
4 Seasonal Services flushes out water via high pressured air. This is critical as even the smallest amount of water left in the irrigation system during the cold winter season can freeze, expand and crack the sprinkler pipes.
Companies that Winterize Sprinkler Systems
Professional sprinkler blowouts are a crucial step in lawn care and sprinkler maintenance. Don’t spend hundreds of dollars replacing pipes that have cracked due to freezing pipes. Even though sprinkler blowouts sound like a simple procedure for professionals to handle, they can be quite dangerous to attempt yourself. Without the proper air compressor and equipment as well as following the necessary precautions, the sprinkler blowout won’t push out all the water anyway. Plus compressed air may even cause you serious injury.
