How Do You Winterize My Sprinkler System?

A compressor is a large and dangerous machine, that is why we are proud and motivated to  educate our entire staff. The company is also licensed and insured, to protect us and our customers. Having a “jack of all trades” who may not have the know how to use a larger compressor could result in a dangerous circumstance. Not only would those around be at risk, but the irrigation system could be left with water in the pipes, damage the irrigation system, or the water could be redirected into the home and cause flooding. 


Kleen Cut Irrigation can complete a winterization service in around half an hour, depending the amount of zones in the system. A clear indication of an ameatur would be the time, as someone using a system not designed for irrigation systems would take upwards of three hours to complete the service. Working one zone at a time, we use the compressor to blow the water out, until air is the only thing coming out of the sprinkler heads.

What to expect from our winterization process

Manual draining

One obvious way of ridding the system of water is by draining the water. A manual valve disposes of the water by setting up intentional low points in the system. This case requires the manual opening of each valve so that the difference in pressure causes a drop in the water’s pressure and allows flowage.

Winterization requires you to locate all valves of the systems at every low point when using a manual sprinkler system. The technician will turn each zone of the sprinkler for several minutes to release residual pressure. They will then leave the drains open until the system switches back on during the spring season.

Automatic draining

This draining mechanism opens once the pressure drops. Turning off the water at the valve winterizes the backflow preventer and runs each zone of the system. Our winterization staff will run each region for several minutes to expend pressure from the lines and allow drainage of the system.

Some technicians recommend a manual winterization system because the automatic one will have stuck valves when they do not have enough chances to open on a regular. Other systems require the combination of both systems with the directives of the winterization professional, to winterize the sprinkler system in Long Island.

Blow out method

The professional should be extremely careful while blowing out the system with pressurized air. It is essential to use the right values and stop the process at the right time to avoid damage to realize the best sprinkler system winterization pros.
