Irrigation pipes aren’t buried as low as you may think, only takes one bad freeze to cause major damage to them.
Did you know that winterizing your irrigation system can also protect the tap water in your house?

Your Irrigation System Affects More Than Your Sprinklers

The Backflow Prevention Device is one of the most expensive and important components of an irrigation system. It ensures that outside contaminants don’t infiltrate your tap water line. This piece sits above the ground, is exposed to the elements, and can become cracked or damaged during a freeze. Make sure to contact your local experts in Denver sprinkler repair and installation to make sure your system has not been compromised and the water in your home is safe and contaminant-free.

Ensure Your Efforts Are Not Wasted and Maintain Your System Properly
Another benefit of irrigation winterization that is often over looked is its effect on your property. The destruction to your property if your irrigation system has to be replaced. If you tend to work hard maintaining your well designed, manicured yard, it can be frustrating to need to uproot your turf to replace irrigation lines.
