Much like the lawn, sprinkler systems will need winterization, too. In the regions of northern Colorado, temperatures can reach below freezing relatively quickly during the cold winter months, and this will require all sprinkler systems to be blown out in order to avoid freezing and the need for repair. At CLC Landscape & Irrigation, we make sure to blow out your sprinkler systems in a way that saves them from the cold that is to come, thereby protecting them from freezing or bursting at any time during the year.
When winterizing your sprinkler systems, the first step is to drain the system of any excess water which may be held inside. This water is what will often cause the systems to freeze during the coldest months of the year, and it must be removed if you are trying to avoid having your sprinkler system damaged. Due to the small amount of precipitation this region of Colorado experiences, sprinklers are an oft needed landscaping accessory if you want your lawn to remain in optimal condition, but these systems must be winterized if you wish for them to work just as efficiently the following year.
