The cooler weather will come, maybe not as soon as we would like, but it will be here before you know it. The winters in Athens are not as severe as our neighbors to the north but it is still critical to winterize your yard, landscaping and irrigation system before the winter chill invades your yard. The clock is ticking and the competition for winter services on your irrigation system is heating up. The mad rush to get your system in the best shape for next spring.
Beat The Rush
The rush to get all of the winterizations done is real and the best thing that you can do as a homeowner is call us at Greenworks EcoScapes and schedule a time to have your irrigation system serviced before the cold. What exactly does a fall/winter service of an underground irrigation system entally? If done the Greenworks EcoScapes way, the inspection and winterization is very thorough and comprehensive.
The first thing that we do is run the system, looking for any sort of leak, underperforming zones and areas of substandard coverage. The offending areas will then be marked for repair or replacement. The repairs are best made before the system is blown out as it is critical to check the operation and the presence of leaks. The last thing that you want is an unpleasant surprise when you begin to use the irrigation system in the spring. A good portion of the inspection and repair process should be the overall integrity of the system, after which time it is safe to blow out the system.
Get The Water Out
The process of blowing out the system is relatively straightforward. The main water supply is turned off inside your home and the system is pressurized with air. Each zone is then activated to allow the air to escape through the heads.
Please give Greenworks EcoScapes a call today to beat the winter rush and keep your irrigation system in top condition!
