Each year, before the first freeze, the rite of irrigation "blow out" becomes the precedence for all irrigation systems which are in areas of the nation where the frost degree goes below the depth of the installed piping.
Due to the potential dangers involved with winterization, it is best to call OC-Garden Care professionals.
Even when you have emptied some water out of the system, the remaining water can freeze, expand and decode the PVC piping, typically from fitting to fitting. Freezing water in the back flow assembly will damage the internal parts and may maybe break the brass body.
To minimize the chance of freeze damage to your irrigation system, you will need to "winterize" your irrigation system. Irrigation systems in places where "winterization" is compulsory are installed using one of three forms of water removal in head: manual drain, auto drain, or blowout.
