1. Improperly winterizing the system yourself could lead to issues
New Jersey is no stranger to winter cold, so you probably know that frozen pipes can cause all kinds of problems. While you avoid frozen household plumbing pipes by keeping the water moving with a slow drip (because you can’t just turn the water off to your house all winter), you can’t do the same with your outdoor plumbing. To avoid broken irrigation pipes and parts during freezing temperatures you must completely blow all the water out of them before the first freeze.
Although you can winterize your sprinkler system yourself, we highly recommend having the experts at All Wet completely blow out all water in your irrigation pipes. That way you can rest assured your sprinkler system will be ready to go come spring and all the components will last as long as possible.
