As an existing customer of ours, you will have nothing to worry about when it comes time to close up your system for the winter. We call you! We will begin winterization or "blow-out" of you system around late September. During the winterization process we remove all excess water from your irrigation system, zone by zone. It is crucial to properly close your irrigation system for the winter. Simply turning off the water is not enough. Any water left in the system will freeze and expand. That expansion will cause significant damage to your system. Come spring, you will face costly repairs unless you properly prepare your system for the winter weather.
