Winter may bring glistening snow and beautiful white treetops, but it also brings freezing cold temperatures which means bad news for your sprinkler system. If any water is left in your irrigation system during the winter months, it can expand and cause your pipes to burst. If other important parts break, it can cause irreversible damage to your entire sprinkler system. The best way to prevent this from happening is to let our team perform a professional winterization on your system.
We provide trained and certified technicians who are experts at handling sprinkler systems to come to your property. Our team provides irrigation winterizations for residential and commercial businesses in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, and other communities of central Iowa.

This process involves turning off the main source of water, making sure all zones are cleared, and setting the controller to the off position. It's important to always have a professional technician perform your winterization because they are highly trained on the correct steps and proper protocol that goes into shutting down an irrigation system. Our winterization services are performed in September and October and are critical for keeping your irrigation system safe throughout the months of the year.
During winterization, we perform a number of steps that will ensure your commercial or residential sprinkler system is ready for the winter ahead. Some of the steps we take to ensure your system is properly shut down include:
