Denver Sprinkler Service: Why You Should Perform a Fall Sprinkler Blowout

October 11, 2017

You’ve heard of irrigation systems being professionally blown out in preparing for winterization, but did you know that’s it’s important to periodically blow out your sprinkler system? Periodic blowouts can preserve the efficiency and durability of your irrigation system - something that we all want so we can rest easy that our system will last for years to come, and provide lush, green grass for seasons to come.

What Exactly Is A Sprinkler Blowout?

A sprinkler blowout is a maintenance routine that ensures that all water and debris that may collectively build up are removed from your system. Most people think that blowouts are only for winterizing, but that’s not the only reason to have one. If you live in a warmer climate, blowouts can ensure that nothing is clogged up in your system.

What Is The Process Of A Sprinkler Blowout?

Even if you’re not fully winterizing your system just yet, fall sprinkler blowouts usually consist of the same process. First thing’s first, we need to pull all the water from the sprinkler hoses and pipes, which usually takes twenty minutes or less. This is imperative before you begin the blowout procedure. Additionally, we’ll have to flush the system to prevent water from either freezing in the pipes and valves (in the winter) and getting rid of debris that might’ve gotten trapped from leaves or summer storms in the fall. The Denver area can still see frost in the fall, which can ultimately freeze pipes if not winterized.

If you wait too long to do a fall sprinkler blowout, pipes and hoses can become ruined from debris buildup. By doing a routine sprinkler blowout, you can save hundreds of dollars on replacement pipes, or even plants or grass that start to grow over the pipes.

Don’t Rely on Amateurs

There are so many reasons to hire a professional sprinkler service for your routine blowouts. Blowouts can be extremely dangerous if left to an amateur or a homeowner who doesn’t know what they’re doing. For professionals, fall blowouts aren’t difficult to manage, but there is always the threat of an amateur failing to get rid of all of the water in the pipes thus expanding enough during the winter to damage your valves and pipes. Case in point: leave routine blowouts to the professionals!
