Sprinkler systems might not be in use throughout the year. By shutting down the system in the winter months, you can reduce the load on your sprinkler systems. This can improve your automated sprinkler system's longevity and efficiency with the help of seasonal start-ups and shutdowns. It is essential to drain all the water from the sprinkler system in the winter season because the water can freeze, causing cracks in the pipeline due to expansion. So, to save you some trouble, Victoria Garden Sprinklers can help you protect your investment by providing sprinkler winterization in Victoria, BC, in which we close down your sprinkler system temporarily.
Don’t let Jack Frost damage the sprinkler system in your Victoria home. When water freezes in underground pipelines, they may rupture or develop stress fractures, causing future leakage. We can prevent this by using compressed air to flush dormant water from the pipes. It's the best way to protect your irrigation investment from potentially serious damage this winter. Victoria Garden Sprinklers can do it for you conveniently, so schedule routine winterization service—don’t wait until it’s too late!

In the process of sprinkler winterization, we first conduct a thorough inspection of the system. We will then turn off the water supply and push out the water in the system with an air compressor. We will also check if there is any backflow, draining it completely. Any areas that need service or repairs will be noted at this time. Please note that irrigation blowouts are temporary, and your sprinkler system can always be restarted once the winter passes. During the de-winterization process, we will perform repairs.
By opting for irrigation blow out services, you can save your system from the damage caused by frost.
