Sprinkler System Winterization

Just before the first Nebraska freeze, it becomes necessary to winterize outdoor sprinkler systems. For those who live in colder climates, like Omaha, where the frost level penetrates to the depth of the irrigation system piping, winterization is very important. Any water left in the sprinkler system can freeze which can result in the excessive expansion and bursting of the polyethylene or PVC piping. Living in Omaha, Nebraska, we all know that weather can change drastically, which is why it’s important to drain the system prior to the first freeze.
