Reasons to Hire a Professional Sprinkler Service for Your Winter Blowouts

August 24, 2016

Blowouts are an important part of good lawn maintenance. It helps keep your sprinklers and water pipes from bursting or getting clogged by debris, which can make trying to water in spring a real problem. Hiring a professional sprinkler service as opposed to trying to do it yourself or asking a local handyman guarantees a certified professional will be performing the maintenance, and ensures there won’t be any problems. When it comes time to schedule your sprinkler blowout in Denver this winter, call Water Solutions first.
  1. Not a Good DIY Project
    Getting the water out of your pipes is a difficult process that is difficult to do without the proper equipment. Buying subpar equipment or messing up a step can do permanent damage to your sprinkler system, resulting in lasting damage to your lawn.
  2. Difficult and Time Consuming
    Not only is blowing out the sprinkler system difficult for an amateur to do, it can be extremely time-consuming if you don’t understand the process. Not only do you have to research how to do it, it can take a long time to get the right equipment and get the job done.
  3. Mistakes Have Consequences
    If there is even a little bit of water left in your pipes, the pipes can burst in freezing temperatures, meaning you'll be left with a gigantic mess to clean up, but also have your sprinklers repaired in spring.
  4. Expense
    Replacing your entire sprinkler system is much more costly than having a professional service come and perform the the blowout -- typically in the range of $100-$300 versus $3,000. That's a bill you wouldn't want to get stuck with by surprise.
Those are the most important reasons why you should not attempt to blowout your own Denver sprinkler system. Here is what a professional service can offer you:
  1. Professional Equipment
    Sprinkler services have professional equipment that get the job done properly and efficiently. There is no burden on the client to provide equipment.
  2. Expertise 
    A certified professional can make sure the job gets done the right way the first time. This means you won’t be risking your pipes exploding during the snowy months.
  3. Efficient 
    Because the professionals know exactly what they are doing, they can get the job done quickly - some as few as twenty minutes!
  4. Cost Effective 
    A sprinkler service charges you a flat rate for the blowout. You don’t have to pay for anything outside of the service. Many companies provide premium services for a reasonable rate.
