What About Your Sprinkler Systems?

The winter freeze has officially arrived in Colorado, which means we need to cover the topic of sprinkler systems! Hopefully everyone has taken the time to read over our blog about preparing your home for the winter; if not check it out here!

It’s very important to make sure you have your sprinkler system completely blown out and dry, and that all hoses are disconnected before the ground begins to freeze. It is also very important to make sure that your main sprinkler feed shut-off is not leaking. If you have already had your lines blown out but notice water continuously dripping through the line then it’s likely your main sprinkler feed shutoff has failed. If so it is very important to have this replaced immediately, a service McAdams Plumbing would happily provide. If not replaced it can cause damage to the atmospheric vacuum breaker or the sprinkler lines themselves. This can lead hundred of dollars in unnecessary repairs (due to freeze breaks).

If you are reading this and still have not had your sprinkler lines blown out, be sure to give our friend Hans Wimmer from Wimmer Landscape and Irrigation a call. Check out his website here, or call at 303-252-1420. Email: [email protected].

As always thanks for stopping by to check out our blog! Hope you learned something today and please feel free to leave comments/questions. Also, if you have a topic you would like McAdams Plumbing to cover in our blog, please let us know in the comments section.

P.S. HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all who are serving, or have served, as well as all of our emergency responders. Our nation is in your debt. Thank you!
