Winterizing can help prevent damage from freezing and costly repairs come next spring. Water left in the pipes, valves, and sprinklers of your irrigation system can freeze over winter, causing sever damage to all part of your system. Particularly if you live in a region where frost penetrates the ground deep enough to reach those pipes, you owe it to yourself to make an annual habit to winterize your irrigation system when you’re done watering for the year.
The Blow-Out method is used to force compressed air through the irrigation system to discharge excess water through the sprinkler heads. This method is potentially hazardous, both to the wrong types of irrigation systems and to anyone who attempts it without taking the proper safety precautions. If you’ve never worked with compressed air or blown out an irrigation system before, save yourself with potential frustrations and repair costs by contacting with our company (www.hydrowise.ca) to winterize your irrigation system in right time with right equipment.
For Blow-Out method you’ll need:
An air compressor rated at 80-100 CFM
A coupler fitting your irrigation system
