As the thermostat continues to fall as we approach the coldest part of the year, time is running out to get a Charlotte irrigation winterization.
"If you haven't already winterized your irrigation system for the winter, now is the time to do it," said John Minor of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "The cost of winterization is relatively inexpensive when compared to the cost of freeze repairs. In other words, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
What Is Winterization?
Your irrigation system is made up of underground pipes, connective plumbing, valves and sprinkler heads. When the system is running, water flows through this underground plumbing and pushes through its sprinkler heads. When the system is not running, water sits idle in the system.
Once the ground freezes, the water inside your irrigation system will freeze. Since water expands as it freezes, your pipes can become cracked or split.
The Charlotte irrigation winterization services offered by Irrigation and Lighting Specialist removes all of the water from your system to protect it during the winter.
Reasons To Get Charlotte Irrigation Winterization
Below are a few reasons why you should winterize your irrigation system this winter:
- Winterizing ensures your irrigation system will be ready to run in the spring.
- Failure to winterize may void your system's warranty.
- It is less expensive to winterize your system than to repair it.
- Freezing temperatures can cause severe damage to your system.
"There is really no reason not to winterize your irrigation system," said Minor. "It is the best way to protect your investment, and with below-average temperatures forecasted for Charlotte this winter, your system will definitely need it to avoid damages."
