Irrigation Repair and Maintenance
A properly installed system will give you years of trouble free operation and require only minor seasonal maintenance. In the winter, the system needs to be ‘winterized’ to prevent water freezing in the pipes and possibly damaging the system. In the Spring, the system will need to be turned back on.

Basic winterization of a sprinkler system is quite simple. The water supply should be turned off at the main valve and the irrigation controller should be set to the “rain” or “off” setting. Each valve should be turned on to release pressure in the pipes and water should be drained from the system to protect any components that could freeze. Your system may have drain valves that can be opened for drainage, or you may have to blow out the system using air. You may wish to have your irrigation system blown out by an irrigation professional. Consult your local irrigation supply store for a recommendation.
The goal of irrigation system maintenance is to create the most efficient irrigation system possible so that water is not wasted on the landscape. While perfect efficiency is impossible to achieve, most irrigation systems can be dramatically improved by regularly following these simple maintenance practices. Examine your irrigation system carefully each spring and several times during the growing season (at least once a month), to eep it operating at peak efficiency. Most importantly, use an irrigation schedule that accounts for plants changing needs over the growing season.
