When we do a typical winterization on an irrigation system that we installed, we utilize compressed air to blow out all water from the pipes, valves and heads so that water doesn’t freeze and create cracked heads, valves or pipes. This is the best method to winterize your irrigation system. When we install an irrigation system, we also install a blow out valve to allow ease of winterization and complete blow-out. Many systems are not equipped for this method, in those cases you could add a winterization valve for convenience. Or use another traditional winterization technique such as running the water out of the system. This is not the optimum method, however, and should only be done by an irrigation professional as this method of winterization, when done improperly, can cause damage to your irrigation system.
