Winters in Michigan are harsh, and the freezing temperatures can damage your irrigation system if it is not winterized properly. Irrigation winterization involves blowing out any remaining water from your irrigation system to protect it from freeze damage. While you can winterize it yourself, it's best not to. You might miss a step during the process and not shut it down properly, leading to damages and costly repairs come springtime. It's always best to hire professionals because they follow a proven process and can keep an eye out for any other potential issues. They also have the experience and equipment to get the job done right the first time!

You could miss a step in the process and not winterize your irrigation system properly.

Irrigation winterization involves several steps to completely remove any excess water from your irrigation system that can freeze and damage the pipes and other components. If you try to winterize your irrigation system yourself, you might miss a step that can lead to it not being properly winterized. Proper knowledge and experience are crucial during winterization to ensure the process is done correctly and avoid any costly repairs come spring.

It's best to hire professionals to winterize your irrigation system. They will follow a tried-and-tested process designed to thoroughly prepare your system for the winter without missing any important steps. Professionals will make sure your water supply is properly shut off, thoroughly blow out the water from the pipes, and power down the system to safely get it ready for the winter season.

Pros will keep an eye out for potential issues during irrigation winterization and repair them if needed.

The best thing about hiring professionals is that they'll go beyond simply winterizing your irrigation system. During the winterization process, they can keep an eye out for and catch any potential issues. Professionals know what a good, properly functioning irrigation system looks like, which means they can also identify when something's wrong. When you try to winterize your system yourself, you may miss these problems! With professionals, they can immediately identify and make the necessary repairs to get your irrigation system in top shape again. That way, you won't have to deal with any repairs in the spring, and your irrigation system can deliver water to your vegetation right away!

Professionals work on irrigation systems for a living and have performed winterizations numerous times.

Professionals tackle all things irrigation daily, which means they have probably performed winterizations hundreds, if not thousands, of times! This means they know what to do and how to do it efficiently. The experience of a trained professional allows them to get the job done right the first time, preventing do-overs and avoiding the risk of making mistakes that can damage your system.

Aside from experience, professionals also have the right equipment. Winterizations involve the use of an air compressor, which blows out all the excess water inside your irrigation system. Handling air compressors should be done cautiously and carefully to prevent damage to the pipes, sprinkler heads, and other components.

In addition to winterizing your irrigation system for the winter, pros can also bring it back online in the spring via a startup service!
