What Is Irrigation Winterization?
Irrigation winterization is the process by which we can protect your lawn irrigation system against cold temperatures during a Knoxville winter. Every time you utilize your irrigation system during the spring or summer, water remains in the pipes and valves following their use. When the temperatures are mild, this is not an issue. But when the temperature dips, any residual water in your irrigation system can freeze. As water freezes, it expands and puts unnecessary pressure on the components of your system. Winterization ensures your pipes are clear by using an air compressor to blow out any excess water. This safeguards your irrigation system and helps guarantee it will work optimally again next year.
Why Is Irrigation Winterization Important?
Lawn care specialists agree that winterizing your irrigation system is the most important measure you can take to extend its longevity and maintain its high performance. Without irrigation winterization, your pipes can crack, develop leaks, or even burst. The Cutting Edge will winterize every component of your irrigation system, including the:
- Control Valves
- Drip Nozzles
- Mainline Manifold
- Sprinkler Heads and Connections
When Should I Schedule Irrigation Winterization Services?
The timing of irrigation winterization services may vary from year to year. The Cutting Edge’s experts will provide guidance regarding the best time to winterize your system. If the weather remains warm well into the fall, you may want to continue using your irrigation system in October. But it is important to plan. Do not put your irrigation system at risk by waiting too long. As longtime Tennessee residents, we know that weather patterns in the Volunteer State can change in a hurry. It is usually best to winterize your irrigation system no later than early November. If patches of warm weather return, you can always water your lawn or garden by hand, the old-fashioned way.
How Much Do Irrigation Winterization Services Cost?
The cost of irrigation winterization services will depend on the breadth of your system and the timing of your service request, among other factors. Planning ahead may save you money, and it can almost certainly save you the stress of watching weather reports in anticipation of a cold snap. We recommend erring on the side of caution when it comes to winterizing your irrigation system because repair costs far exceed winterization fees. Call us toward the end of summer or beginning of autumn to request a no-obligation, free estimate for irrigation winterization.
