Now that Labor Day has passed, winter is closing in on us, and the first frost could be here before you know it. While there are many tasks at hand to prepare your home and property for the cold winter months, few are as important as preparing for freezing water. It’s time to winterize your boat and it’s also time to have a sprinkler blowout in Minneapolis. If you’re thinking about doing your own irrigation winterization, or you’ve “got a guy”, consider all of the benefits of hiring Conserva Irrigation of the Twin Cities to handle your Minneapolis irrigation system winterization.
Winterization from Conserva Irrigation of the Twin Cities costs just $95 no matter how big your residential irrigation system is and no matter who installed or serviced it.
Not all irrigation blowouts are the same. With Conserva Irrigation you get a full system evaluation included with your winterization. The invaluable information you gain from our evaluation will alert you to any small breaks or leaks that are not so obvious in the everyday functioning of your system, but in the long run could be costing you a lot of money in wasted water. We take the time and effort to study every sprinkler head, every zone and listen to every line for potential breaks or damages, providing you a full list and flat rate pricing of critical repairs your system needs before spring.
Upon the completion of blowing out the irrigation system, Conserva Irrigation guarantees that the system was properly winterized and that no damage will occur from freezing temperatures. In the rare event that damage occurs due to our negligence, Conserva Irrigation will, at no cost to you, repair the damaged components.
Some exclusions included but not limited to are:
If, by any chance, you forgot to winterize your sprinkler system and are wondering what can be done, please go here for information on how to best deal with potential damage.
Here at Conserva Irrigation, every time we are on your property for the smallest repair, a firmware update or winterization we will take the time to evaluate your entire irrigation system. Winterization is a particularly good time to find broken heads, leaking seals on the bottom side of your sprinkler heads or small line leaks. Air makes a perfect diagnostic tool. Every time we perform a Minneapolis winterization blowout we use pressurized air to discover and locate potential breaks and leaks. If there is a broken sprinkler head in your irrigation system, you may see it right away, but if it is a broken seal near the bottom of the head water simply moves down, going unnoticed. When we are winterizing, the pressurized air will bubble up to the surface alerting us of the leak. The same applies to hard-to-find lateral line leaks, the air will create bubbles that are easy to see in your lawn, as our certified technicians observe every facet of your system while the pressurized air is flowing through it.
Damaged drip irrigation lines are particularly hard to notice. When winterizing your Minneapolis irrigation system we use this time as a final end of season diagnostic tool to prepare for next season. When air runs through a damaged drip line we can hear when something is not right. Have you ever gotten out of your car and heard a gentle (or not so gentle) hissing from one of your tires? A great way to be alerted about a hole in your tire that you’d rather not find while driving. The same idea applies to the air we run through your irrigation system during a winterization blow out. We’ll hear it now, before it wastes thousands of gallons of water when you turn your system on in the spring.
When we conduct your winterization blowout we’ll go zone by zone and head by head with a clipboard in hand. We will spend time on every zone, watching every head, and listening to every drip line to make sure there is nothing amiss. Our sprinkler blow-outs prepare you for the endeavor of repairing any damages or leaks before next season. Our competitors barely take a gander to see if anything looks awry. We’ll leave you with a report in hand of any critical repairs or adjustments that will need to be made before you turn your system on next spring. Included in the report will be our flat rate pricing, allowing you to budget for it over the winter months.
