Charlotte irrigation winterization service provider, we feel compelled to continue warning Charlotte homeowners about the dangers of failing to properly shut-down your sprinkler system for the winter. Fortunately, we've had a warm winter so far but these mild temperatures are not expected to continue much longer. Now is the final opportunity for you to prepare your irrigation system for the freezing temperatures that are guaranteed to come.
"The dangers of not properly shutting down your irrigation system for the winter cannot be overstated," says John Minor of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "We've seen it time and time again, homeowners think that because the first few months of Winter are milder, they do not need to worry about damage to their systems. Then, once the freezing temperatures arrive, it's too late and they have suffered costly damages."
Charlotte Sprinkler Winterization Prevents Costly Damage
As frequent reader of our blog know, when temperatures drop below freezing, it can cause the remaining water in the pipes and sprinkler heads to freeze. As the water freezes, it expands and causes the pipes and sprinkler heads to crack and burst. The damage that this causes can prove to be costly, especially when compared to the cost of properly winterizing the system.
Irrigation & Lighting Specialist has years of experience assisting homeowners to properly winterize their irrigation systems. Our professionally-trained technicians can ensure that your sprinkler system is properly shut down and ready to go once spring arrives.
Consequence of Failing to Winterize
We finished the system just as the weather began to cool. Despite our repeated warnings, this homeowner did not think a winter shut-down was necessary and opted to skip it. Sure enough, once Spring came around, he discovered that all of these new irrigation system components had been damaged from the freezing temperatures.
"To add insult to injury, this all happend during a winter that saw very few freezing temperatures," adds Minor. "In the end, the new irrigation system ended up costing almost double because so many parts had to be replaced."
