Minimize the risk of freeze damage by having your irrigation system winterized. Even if you drain the water from your system, remaining water can still freeze and damage your irrigation system.
Residential winterizations are done at a flat rate of $85 per system*. Commercial properties are done on a time and materials basis.
This service includes turning off the water supply, opening each station valve to allow lines and heads to drain, draining backflow preventers that are located above grade, and programming the controller appropriately for the winter shut down.
We encourage our clients to complete any irrigation repairs during your Winterization service visit to avoid start up delays during the busy spring season!
* Rates for Service Agreement Customers are per contract.
The Nelson Team also offers a Spring Start-Up Service.
When spring weather arrives we will turn your water supply on and do a full station by station inspection of your irrigation system.
Should we find freeze damage, and you took advantage of our Winterization service, we will make those repairs at no cost to you.
If you have not used our Winterization service we will make any required repairs and adjustments at our standard service hourly rate plus materials. Spring Start-Up is charged by the hour due to the differences in system sizes.
