What are the dangers of not blowing out an irrigation system before the winter?
An irrigation blowout is the process of removing all water from an irrigation system before winter in order to prevent damage from freezing temperatures.
Without an irrigation blowout, water that is left in the system can freeze and expand, causing cracks and breaking of sprinkler pipes or irrigation components. In addition, frozen water can block irrigation lines, preventing water from flowing through the system. While it may be tempting to skip this step to save some money and time, in the long run, the consequences may be much more costly. Therefore, it is recommended that irrigation systems must be properly drained before winter arrives. Failure to do so can result in costly repairs and downtime for the system. A professional irrigation company can help you ensure that your system is properly blown out and ready for winter. At GTA Irrigation and Lighting we have done thousands of irrigation blowouts prior to winter for over 20 years in Toronto and GTA.
How Can the Winter Season in Toronto and GTA Damage Your Irrigation System?
Frozen water / ice in the irrigation system will weaken the pipe walls during the winter. Initially, the system may run as expected, but then a random pipe break may occur somewhere under the lawn surface at any time during the season.
Possibly the worst kind of damage that may occur with frozen water in the irrigation system, that is if the irrigation system does not receive a proper irrigation blowout in the fall of 2023, is a broken water source pipe or a broken backflow. If a critical pipe has burst and refroze, then your basement or lower ground space can flood and freeze, causing costly damage to your property. So much damage can be fully avoided by scheduling a standard irrigation blowout service in Toronto and GTA.
