If you wait any longer, you risk extensive damage to your irrigation components from freezing water. Let our technicians inspect everything from your wiring, pipes, spray heads, and backflow preventer. We will make sure everything stays in working order to keep your irrigation system working and your lawn lush and green.
Underground Irrigation System Parts Can Freeze
Many customers believe that pipes are unlikely to freeze because they are underground. However, during periods of freezing weather, the frost level gets progressively deeper. The soil will freeze at lower and lower levels as temperatures drop lower and stay that way for a prolonged period. Typically, the frost line in Illinois only goes a few inches. However, it’s important to note the exceptions. Water service lines come with a required depth of 24 inches, and they generally try to get them much deeper because the frost line can extend past that point. Most sprinkler system lines are installed at a depth of 8-12 inches, so it’s important to make sure you winterize your sprinkler system in Springfield IL.
