If you live in a climate with a cold winter season, preparing and winterizing your sprinklers is essential to prevent irreparable damage. Water is normal to find trapped in your sprinkler system, even in the sprinkler heads. When that water freezes, however, it expands. This causes sprinkler heads to break — even pop off completely.
To prevent a complete sprinkler repair or replacement every year, winterize your sprinklers before the temperatures dive into a freezing range (32 degrees Fahrenheit).
There are a few methods to winterize sprinklers, but it’s wise to have professional service take care of it for you. This ensures your entire system is adequately protected, and with the method best suited for your home.
