Sprinkler & Irrigation Winterization

Filed under: Underground Sprinkler System Service — admin @ 12:41 pm

frosted pumpkin 2April Showers Sprinkler Company is now taking appointments to service your sprinkler and irrigation systems for winterization. In the fall, the systems will be shut off at the main valve, blown-out and purged.  All clocks will be set to the off position.  This is a critical procedure since New Jersey’s frost date is typically October 16th.  Days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder and frost will be on the pumpkin before you know it!  Please call Renee at 732-752-8030 ext 113 for an appointment.

Not only will it help maintain a healthy beautiful landscape which you can enjoy with your friends and family, but it’s the most convenient and efficient way to ensure your landscape gets the water it needs without over-or under-watering. When it is properly installed and maintained an automatic sprinkler system will help conserve water too.  This video by Rain Bird is an introduction to spray heads, nozzles, rotors, rotary nozzles and impact sprinklers.
