Winter is coming, which means it's time to start winterizing your home. While you're cleaning the gutters and checking for leaky windows, don't forget to take care of what's underneath your lawn. USA Hoich Irrigation, a company of innovative sprinkler experts serving the Omaha, NE, area, is here to explain how properly winterizing your sprinkler system can save a lot of money and headaches later.
Here are just a few of the benefits of having your lawn irrigation system winterized by an expert:
- Avoid Damaged Pipes: When you turn off the valves, water left in the pipes will still freeze, causing pipes to leak and burst. The experienced professionals at USA Hoich Irrigation will fully drain your system, ensuring that no water is left standing when the deep freeze hits.
- Prevent Leakage: After draining and blowing out the system, their technicians will check the valves to make sure more water doesn't enter the pipes during the winter. Because of the way water expands when it freezes, even a small amount can pose a risk.
- Equipment Upgrades: After a thorough examination, your technician will be able to recommend upgrades that will make your system more efficient, less costly, and requiring of less maintenance, like rain and freeze sensors that prevent your sprinklers from activating in certain conditions or new “smart” timers.
