Landscaping Birmingham – Irrigation System Winterization
During extreme temperatures, especially when the weather fluctuates from one extreme to the next, as it does in the south, your irrigation system’s pipes can expand and burst.
Protect Your Irrigation System
The bursting of these parts create an event in your irrigation system, that could result in hundreds of dollars to replace. This can easily be prevented for a very low cost, by having your pipes cleared of water and having any necessary repairs made ahead of the freezing temperatures.
Irrigation System Winterization Service
The Nelson Team offers an irrigation system winterization service. This service includes turning off the water supply, opening each station valve to allow lines and heads to drain. Draining back-flow preventers that are located above grade, and programming the controller appropriately for the winter shut down period.
The best feature of this service is that your system is warranted against any freeze damage. Should any part of your system become damaged during the freezing temperatures, The Nelson Team will repair it at no cost to you. You can look at this service as an insurance policy against the winter’s freezing weather.
The price for this service is $75.00 per residential system which makes it a n0-brainer. (Pump systems may be more.)
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. We will make any required repairs (other than freeze damage) and adjustments at our standard service hourly rate plus materials. The Spring Start-Up is charged by the hour due to the differences in system sizes.
