You have used your sprinkler system faithfully all summer long to keep your lawn in good condition and we don’t want you to have any problems when it’s time to start your system up again in the Spring.

There are a few steps you can take this fall to ensure a working sprinkler system in the spring:

1. Set up your sprinkler shut down appointment.  If you are a current customer, you have received a post card with a few different date ranges.  Choose the one that best suits your schedule and give us a call, or visit our website to schedule:  http://suncolawns.com/scheduling-shutdown :

October 3 – 14

October 17 – 28

October 31 – November 11

If you are not a current customer, give us a call and we can get you all signed up and ready to go.

2.  When you are done watering for the season and have your appointment set up with us, you can turn your water off inside.  Don’t know how to do that?  No worries, we have a video for that! http://suncolawns.com/residential/sprinklers.   Or if you aren’t comfortable or unable to turn your water off inside just make sure you can be home for your appointment and we can take care of it for you.

3.  Finally, we come out and open all the valves and blow air through the sprinkler system with a large air compressor.  This makes sure that your system is clear of all water so that when temperatures drop below freezing your pipes and backflow are not damaged.

Easy as that!  So when you are jotting down your to-do list, make sure to add Sprinkler Shut Down to it.
