How to Turn Off Your Sprinkler System's Water Supply for the Season

We make the Winterization process easy for you. You don't even need to be home when we winterize your sprinklers as long as you complete these 3 easy steps before we arrive:
  1. Turn off the water line inside that "feeds" your sprinkler system. This is usually in the basement.
  2. Put a bucket under the drain valve and then open the valve to drain water from the pipes. The drain valve is usually inside the house; however, it can also be located outside the house by the backflow, depending on how the plumbing was installed. Please note: The "drain valve" may be a spigot, a ball valve, or even a plug.
  3. In the case of freezing temps, you can also turn the test cocks on the backflow to release the pressure and let all of the trapped water drain out.
