That’s right, we all know the first hard freeze of the season is coming. We don’t know when, but with the cooler than usual weather throughout the summer, we suspect we might have an early freeze this year.
The good news is that we’ve also had lots of rain this summer, so the ground still has plenty of moisture to support late-blooming gardens, trees and, of course, the grass. The better news is that you can safely winterize your sprinkler system earlier than normal this year. Our equipment is prepped, and we’re ready to schedule appointments for winterization.
We are confident that there’s enough water in the soil to safely go ahead and winterize sprinklers. We also know that the damaging heat, sun and winds of the summer are gone for this year. Your grass will be just fine as it starts to go dormant for the winter.
We only have so many slots available for winterization of systems, so please contact our offices at 334-2625 to schedule your appointment. We schedule appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to wait a bit longer, make sure you protect your backflow device if the forecast calls for freezing temperatures. We still have time to take good care of your system, as long as the above-ground pipes are protected with blankets, towels or an insulated backflow cover. The pipes underground will be fine until the ground freezes – you know, until we have extended periods of freezing temperatures.
But don’t run the risk of waiting too long for your winterization. Call us today at 334-2625 to set up your appointment. The sooner you call, the better chance you have of getting the work done when it best fits your schedule.
