Q: When should I winterize?
A: Here in Salt Lake Valley we recommend to start protecting your backflow from freezing between October 1st and November 15th when temperatures start dipping below the freezing mark.
Winter freezes can be highly damaging to a sprinkler system that isn’t “winterized.” Winterization of a system includes draining all water from the exterior pipes of your home. If water is left to freeze, it expands inside the system components, which causes cracks in the valves and pipelines. Pipe damage can lead to leaks outside and inside the home, not to mention a hefty repair bill. Therefore, The backflow preventer unit is an important piece, which stops water from flowing back into the main water supply from outside. Before winter approaches, you’ll want to protect your backflow preventer from harsh freezes by draining it.
