Question of the Week 11/02/2019
Q: What will happen if I leave my irrigation system on year-round?
A: It is VERY important to make sure your irrigation is shut down and properly winterized to prevent very costly repairs. This includes opening and draining the valves, filter and backflow preventer, as well as turning your timer off to prevent burning out the solenoids. The components of an irrigation system are not intended to hold frozen water and will crack from the expansion.
