Every year, before the onset of winter, homeowners across Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County and the surrounding areas start draining the water out of their irrigation systems. This “blow-out” is necessary in areas where the frost levels extend well below the depth of any installed piping. However, just draining the water does not help; there could be some water that remains in the systems- this can freeze and expand and eventually the piping will crack. If water freezes in the back-flow assembly, it can damage the system’s internal components & there is a possibility that the brass body will crack too. The best way to minimize the risk of damage to this system is to opt for our irrigation winterization services.

The Irrigation Winterization Process

- Water pressure to the irrigation system will be shut-off and tagged via the main gate valve.
- Remove water from irrigation system with commercial air compressor
- The test ports on the backflow device will be opened to winterize it.
- Gate valves on the back-flow device will be closed.
- Inform you of any issues or recommendations for next season
