Sprinkler Winterization

Before the first freeze hits Calgary your should perform a winterization remove all water from your irrigation system. Frozen water can damage the components of the system from nozzles to the sprinkler heads. Irrigation winterization or more commonly reffered to as ‘sprinkler blow out’ are generally performed from mid-September to mid-October in Southern Alberta depending on the weather conditions.

Winterization is known as ‘blowout’ because we literally blow out most of the water from your system until leaving it dry enough and ready for hibernation.

Don’t wait to winterize your sprinkler system

Waiting until the temperature hits below zero is not recommended as this can be enough for considerable amounts of ice to form. Calling ‘quits’ on summer season can be sad, but paying later to repair your  system because the irrigation winterization was not done on time can be even sadder.

Sprinkler winterization is an essential and necessary service to maintain the life of your irrigation system and avoid costly repairs or early replacements down the road. this service pays for itself, make sure to book early to benefit from our early bird savings!

Sprinkler blowout

A Short Intro to Fall Irrigation Blowout

Get ready for winter!

The best time to winterize sprinkler systems is during the fall. In Southern Alberta that would be anytime from mid-September to the end of October. After October you risk freezing temperatures. water frozen in your lines can create irreparable damages and require replacement. This is not good for your irrgiation system

Blowing out irrigation lines is no easy task. Make sure you hire this service from a certified irrigation contractor.  We recommend making sure that your irrigation system is running properly. If you experienced any issues in the summer it might be a good idea to have it checked or repaired.

Freeze ready!

With the lines, sprinkler bodies and sprinkler heads now all empty of water, your system ig good now for the winter. As temperatures get to the freeze point or below no ice can be created now. Your system is now ready for the next year.

People understimate what ice can do. Ice water has a larger volume than liquid water. when the water expands in the lines and sprinkler bodies or heads this can tear the system inside or even break it. Do not understimate ice, especially in Alberta.

The sprinkler blow out service is a necessary service and essential to maintaining any irrigation system where there is a risk of freezing temperatures. Winterize your system early and avoid costly repairs in the spring. You can even book your winterization early to take advantage of our Early Bird discount!

Irrigation and Sprinkler Blowout Disclaimer

Regarding the service commonly referred to as a Sprinkler Winterization or “Fall Blowout”, depending on the system layout, parts may need to be disconnected in order to ensure that the system has been winterized properly.

Because the system no longer has water running through it, Naiad Irrigation Systems Ltd. (hereafter referred to as “Naiad”) cannot guarantee that any components that may or may not have been disconnected and reconnected during the winterization process will be reconnected to the point in which they could be deemed as watertight.

Furthermore, in order to allow certain irrigation systems to drain properly, some exterior components of the system may be left open after the service has been completed to prevent any potential damage to the system over the winter.

With this being the case, Naiad cannot and shall not be held responsible for any potential and/or actual damages to any persons and/or property due to improperly installed, malfunctioning, or otherwise leaking/open components.

Best practices

Naiad offers a Spring Activation service in which the system will be turned on again in the spring safely and following industry best practices to ensure that all fittings are watertight, to prevent any potential damage(s) to people and/or property. This service is highly recommended, but not mandatory.

Should the client choose to turn their own irrigation system on at any point after the Winterization, or have another contractor other than Naiad perform this service. Then they shall be held responsible for ensuring that all components of the system are watertight, closed and/or open as per industry standards.

By proceeding with the winterization service, you are agreeing to the terms of this disclaimer.
