As colder weather approaches, it's important to prepare your sprinkler systems for the months ahead, and USA Hoich is here with a few tips for care and maintenance during winter.
Since most of your landscape is dormant in winter, it isn't going to require much water. It's not advisable to shut it down completely for the duration, but you can still run your system on a reduced winter schedule. Here are some simple steps you should take to ensure the season comes and goes without a hitch.
• Check For Wet Spots: Before winter kicks into full gear, you'll want to make sure there aren't any leaks in your system. To check for this, you can take a walk around your yard when it's dry and look out for any unexpected wet spots.
• Test All Spray Heads: When your system is turned on, all spray heads in each zone or station should pop up. Run tests to check for broken/blown spray heads or a potential low-pressure situation.
• Fix Any Alignment Issues: Misaligned sprinklers could send water in an unwanted direction, and runoff on the street can even result in fines from the city. Inspect your system to ensure there are no leaning or alignment issues prior to winter.
Secure your system and switch to a reduced schedule for a smooth winter without any lawn irrigation worries. For assistance with the transition or other residential irrigation needs, head to USA Hoich Irrigation's website or call them at (402) 896-5899.
