Protective steps for cold weather
In the event of extreme cold weather as we sometimes
see here during Fall in NH and MA, if your system has
not been winterized yet, there are a couple of steps
that you should take to prevent freeze damage.
Be sure to shut off the water that feeds the irrigation
Using your controller, activate zone 1 for a
minute, this will open the valve and allow the main line
water to flow down the back flow pipe and into the valve
If you have a faucet or a plug connected to
the pipe that comes out of the house, open that. Some
water may drain out. Leave these ports open.
sure your controller is unplugged or in the off
These simple steps taken during a cold
snap will sufficiently drain the outside components of
your system and prevent any damage. All the valves,
pipes and sprinklers in the ground will be safe. It
takes a long time for the ground to actually freeze deep
enough to cause damage to below surface parts. If you
have any further questions or concerns please feel free
to call our office at 603-672-1431.
