Preventing winter damage to your irrigation system
Just like your lawn’s needs change season to season, your sprinkler repair and maintenance needs will change as fall turns to winter. Winterizing your sprinkler system should occur before your first local freeze and is vital to prevent cracked pipes, clogged sprinkler heads, and damaged sprinkler heads.
Cracked valves and pipes
One of the most common causes of winter damage to irrigation systems results from water being left inside freezing pipes. As frigid temperatures move in, the remaining water will freeze, expand, and cause pipes, valves, and seals to crack and leak. As part of TruGreen’s Annual Sprinkler Maintenance Plan, trained specialists will perform year-round irrigation checkups to ensure top performance.
Clogged sprinkler head
Broken sprinkler head
If sprinkler heads are set too high, they can often be damaged by vehicles or lawn mowers. As part of the Annual Sprinkler Maintenance Plan, TruGreen will provide up to 3 free replacement sprinkler heads per quarterly visit.
