Now that the warm months are over, the chilly air of fall and winter is descending upon Texas. As you prepare for colder weather with chores like cleaning the fireplace or servicing your heating and cooling system, consider winterizing your irrigation system. This short video will give you easy-to-follow instructions on turning off your controller, operating your backflow prevention assembly, and closing your isolation valve.
These actions will prevent your system from being damaged in the event of a freeze, which could result in costly repairs or contamination of the water you use inside your home.
Depending on how much precipitation you receive during the winter months, you may not need to turn your irrigation system back on until late March or early April.
