How to winterize your lawn sprinklers? #IrrigationAtlanta standard

A common question for those with yard, garden, or lawn irrigation systems. There are several things that must be done to winterize a sprinkler system. Since most systems don’t use auto-drain valves, we are just going to address those types of systems. If your system does not use auto-drain valves, then an air compressor must be used to blow the water out of the zones. Turn off the main water supply to the sprinkler system, and hook up an air compressor to the system. Pressurize the tank to about 60 psi and then open on of the valves manually. Run that station for 2 to 3 minutes to allow all the water to be removed from the system. Shut that ...

Install Irrigation: After the install… standard

A Warranty is typically given for a period of time on new irrigation installations but if the irrigation company that installs your system can’t back up the Warranty then it’s useless to you. We receive many calls each week from customers who cannot locate the company that installed their sprinkler system. They were promised a warranty and the company is no longer in business or not reachable. This is tip #12 because it is going to save you money in the long run if you have problems and an irrigation professional will provide good service after the sale including resolution of problems that may arise as well as tweaking your system to ensure that your irrigation system is working at ...

Irrigation Atlanta: Is there more I can do other than winterizing to protect my lawn sprinkler system when it’s really cold? standard

^That is one of the most frequently asked questions we get. The answer is not simple…. Because water expands when it freezes, it obviously is the first line of protection to have your irrigation system ‘blown out’ to protect it from freezing temperatures. Are there other things you can do as a homeowner? We have homeowners who, once their irrigation system is winterized, actually wrap their valves and backflow devices in plastic, then a towel and secure it to prevent freezing of water from the outside. It’s interesting when I hear this but I certainly can tell you that this doesn’t hurt as unorthodox as it sounds to irrigation professionals. Typically this is recommended as a short term prevention method ...

Irrigation Atlanta: Winter & Rain Sensors standard

We’d like to remind our customers that irrigation systems should be shut down when the temperatures drop below freezing to prevent overspray from freezing on sidewalks and streets and causing accidents/injuries. Irrigation systems installed after 2007 must by law have rain sensors that shut the system down when it is raining or when temperatures fall below 32 degrees F. Not only is this water efficient but it’s for safety’s sake. You can have a professional shut your system down during the wintertime as well as have them install a rain sensor. Many companies, such as ours, also offer a spring start up as well to get your system back up and running after its been shut down all winter. Please like ...
