When to Winterize Your Sprinkler System

Is now a good time to winterize the sprinkler system? Find out here.

If you have a sprinkler system for your lawn, residential or commercial, there will come a time of year when you will need to treat it for withstanding winter weather. Winterizing your sprinkler system is an essential part of lawn and landscape care; in Maryland, Michael Bryan Landscapes can winterize your sprinkler system at the proper time.

Why Winterize Your Sprinkler System

In Maryland, winters tend to be mild, but they do consistently drop below the freezing point during the winter. When the weather drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, even for a night, any water left inside the pipes, hoses, and sprinkler heads will freeze. This frozen water will damage your irrigation system, whether above or underground, possibly causing devices to burst, crack, or break. These damages are not costs you want to have to pay come spring, so it is best to take proper care of your irrigation systems year-round.

When to Winterize Your Sprinkler System

The question of the hour is when to winterize your sprinkler system. In Maryland, any time in October and November is likely the best time to get this done. The idea is to winterize the system before the first frost hits. It is when the weather drops below freezing that damage can occur. Therefore, if it is already October or November when you are reading this, it is best to call for an irrigation professional as soon as you can.

Why Hire an Irrigation Professional

Whether you have a residential or commercial irrigation system, it is best to hire a professional landscaper trained in sprinkler system care. A professional will know exactly what to do and do it in record time. You won’t have to worry about learning how to do it yourself or making rookie mistakes along the way!
