In the Kansas City area (a freezing climate)
lawn sprinkler systems must be winterized to prevent freeze
damage to pipes, spray heads and other equipment.
There are two standard methods by which sprinkler systems
are winterized: "Blow-Out" and "Gravity-Drained".
Samson Irrigation will winterize your system based upon
how it was designed.
Sprinkler systems requiring the blow-out method have an
additional pipefitting near the water source that allows
an air compressor to fill the pipes with air pressure.
"Gravity Drain" Method
Sprinkler systems requiring the gravity drain method are
specifically designed for this. Samson Irrigation will open
and drain each station
We'll also check for any special system winterization needs,
checking faucets and the backflow preventer.
