While the Massachusetts heat still feels like it’s the middle of July outside some days, it is officially almost fall. Winter probably feels like it’s still far away, but it’ll be right around the corner before you know it. Before winter hits Massachusetts, you need to take care of your irrigation system. Having your irrigation system winterized by a professional will not only save your pipes but will save you time and money and enable you to feel safe knowing your system is prepared for when spring arrives.
Saves You Money
Many people assume that hiring a professional to winterize your irrigation system for you will be more expensive than doing it yourself, but doing it on your own could end up setting you back hundreds or thousands of dollars. Irrigation systems are big, expensive investments. They also keep your property value up. If you try to winterize the system by yourself without professional help from a professional, you could possibly end up making a mistake that could cost you a lot more money than hiring an expert in the first place.
Saves You Time
Winterizing your irrigation system can take up a lot of time if you choose to do it yourself and that precious free time should be used to do many other things! You’ll want to save some time to enjoy the fall weather before the temperature gets colder, and you also have loads of other fall yard maintenance to take care of before winter is here. A professional irrigation specialist can get the winterization done quickly and accurately.
Professionals Have The Equipment
Any water that stays after you drained out the system can freeze, expand, and crack the piping. For an irrigation system to be winterized correctly, every single drop of water must be removed from the pipes and the sprinkler heads. Heavier water will settle in the pipes, which causes the pipes to freeze and break equipment. This could result in having some expensive repairs in the spring. Professionals have the right equipment and are know how to use it the right way!
In the end, it is much better to call in a professional to take care of your winterization process. They are appropriately trained to do so! Our professionals at Berardi Irrigation know how to get the job done accurately and safely and prep your system for when warm weather roles around again!
