The weatherman is forecasting that the temperatures are going to drop below freezing TONIGHT! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO!!! MY SPRINKLER SYSTEM HASN'T BEEN WINTERIZED FOR THE SEASON YET!!!
Almost everyone who lives in a colder climate has been in this position because the weather often changes overnight from Fall to Winter.
That is why we are here to help with this simple How-To that will HELP PREVENT freeze damage at your PVB Backflow until you can have your sprinkler system winterized properly.
Call us today if you have questions and to get on our schedule to get your system winterized!
Please remember that we cannot guarantee that this will prevent freeze damage.
This will simply increase your chances of avoiding freeze damage.
Most sprinkler systems have a back flow preventer installed, and it is a very important part of your system to understand. It is above ground making it susceptible to freeze damage which could result in expensive repairs or even water damage. It is also a quick and convenient location to shut the water off to your sprinklers in case of a mainline break without having climb your crawl space.
If you don't have a back flow preventer, you should. It protects outside contaminants from accidentally entering your drinking water. Call or email us today if you would like more information.

Every year I get panicked phone calls from people about lawn fertilizer applications and sprinkler operation. They are panicked usually because their lawn fertilization company has just left and advised them to run their sprinklers at a specific time after the application; HOWEVER, they haven't had their sprinkler system started for the season yet!
Because it is very difficult to get on a schedule within that small of a time frame, I always advise my customers to be sure their sprinkler system is operational BEFORE your lawn fertilizer appointment.
SO, the answer to this question:
Should I have my sprinkler system started before my first fertilizer and weed control application? YES!
Even if you know how to start your own sprinkler system, ALWAYS get it operational BEFORE you schedule your first lawn fertilization and weed control application.
Waiting until the day before or the day of your first treatment to turn your system on may result in finding out that something is broken and has to be repaired before you are able to run your system!
Call us today if you have more questions and to get on our schedule to get your system started!
