Big Summer Blowout: It’s time to schedule your Sprinkler system maintenance

“Yoo-hoo?! Big Summer Blowout.” If your kids have made you watch Frozen one too many times you might hear this phrase and cringe. When the Professionals at Lawn Doctor use it we are referring to your sprinkler system.

That’s right Blowing out your sprinklers is key to keeping you from pulling your hair out when you try to get them going again next spring. Not only is it important for you to get them done, it’s even better to get them done by the professionals at lawn Doctor.

The Ice Queen

Just like Elsa’s icy blasts brought chaos to Arendale, ice will work its wicked way on the sprinklers and the rest of your irrigation system. When water freezes, it also expands and the plastic or metal tubing that makes up your system becomes brittle. Together, this is a deadly combination for your system causing it to break, crack, and leak. You can save hundreds of dollars over the life of your system by properly blowing out your system every fall before the first frost hits, because there won’t be any water left in your system to freeze over.

Trust the Pros

There are a lot of people who insist that blowing out the irrigation system is a do-it-yourself project. While we give kudos to those who do so, we also want you to know that it is perfectly acceptable to ask for help. – Here at Lawn Doctor, We encourage it.

First, don’t trust those automatic drains or values they never do a complete job. Second, your sprinkler system has more than just sprinkler heads, a water source and tubing it has intricate bits that you will want to thoroughly blow out to save on repairs later.

There are a variety of different systems that may take different air pressure and different care. At lawn doctor our professionals take out the guess work and get the system cleared the first time. We are through and make sure to blow the system out twice and shut it off properly, ensuring that the only water you will see on your sprinkler heads is from the newly falling snow.

So stop guessing, and Let it go, Lawn Doctor is here to help.
