Freezing temperatures are approaching in the coming days and preparing your sprinkler system for winter is very important to avoid damages. Without the proper sprinkler winterizing procedures, water will remain trapped in the supply lines and freeze. This will crack or burst the lines. In some cases, this can cause thousands of dollars in damage to the interior and exterior of your home.
Our technicians, who are licensed with Omaha's Plumbing Board, are winterizing sprinkler systems across the metro area to ensure proper shutdown and inspection before the winter months.
By following the linked diagram below, you will ensure proper procedures are completed on the inside of your home to prevent any damage before the first freeze. Another preventative measure is to wrap a towel or blanket around the backflow on the outside of your home. If you need assistance, don't worry, our technicians will help you to complete the steps.
Hoses should also be disconnected from the outside hose bibs (faucets). Water trapped inside the hose may cause expansion and damage the hose bib as well.
