Our Residential Winterizations for Irrigation Systems

Finding a reliable lawn and landscaping company to winterize your irrigation system can be challenging, but The Grounds Guys of East Wichita are ready to respond to your request. Lawn irrigation system winterizing takes a professional touch to ensure your system’s backflow doesn’t freeze and damage it. We will shut down and winterize your home’s sprinkler system in the fall before cold weather moves in and freezes the ground. If you live in Wichita and surrounding communities and use city water, you need to winterize your sprinkler system in October or early November. Systems using well water can typically wait until mid-November to shut them down for the season. You might think the cost to winterize your residential irrigation system isn’t worth it. However, not winterizing your system can lead to costly damage from freezing temperatures. Our winterization services include the following:

  • Shutting down controller
  • Shutting off water to your sprinkler system
  • Clearing water from all zones and lines and your backflow preventer

We Specialize in Backflow Winterization

Your irrigation system’s backflow preventer can sustain damage from wintry weather’s freezing temperatures and wind chills. Using water from the City of Wichita and surrounding communities in your system typically means it has a backflow preventer. The city requires these devices in your irrigation system to prevent water contamination from affecting the city’s water system. The Grounds Guys of East Wichita understand winterizing your sprinkler system early (before the first freeze, is better than waiting until the last minute if you have a backflow preventer. You should watch the weather closely beginning in October to schedule winterization as early as possible and beat our hectic time when residents request this service before cold weather arrives. We can safeguard your irrigation system and backflow preventer against expensive damage.

Why Should I Winterize My Irrigation System?

The Grounds Guys of East Wichita can explain in detail how to winterize your residential irrigation system because being transparent and informative helps you make educated decisions. However, many people don't know why winterization is so essential. Most service providers recommend sprinkler winterization to prevent freezing temperatures from damaging your system. When water freezes and expands, your pipes can crack or burst. You might not notice a leak since your pipes are underground. A water leak can go on for months or years and cause issues like high water bills, erosion, and problems with your home's foundation. Sprinkler heads can also develop similar cracks, causing the head to break off or create cracks you don’t notice immediately. We strongly advise you to winterize your irrigation system annually if you live in Kansas or any region that freezes regularly.
