In Idaho Falls, sprinkler repair is often sought out during the spring. Our winters are long and cold, and too many people fail to properly winterize their sprinkler systems in the fall.
Winterizing your sprinkler system means draining all of the remaining water from the system, as well as putting your hoses in a safe, relatively warm storage space. Unlike most things, water actually expands when it freezes. If you have too much water remaining in your sprinkler system and the weather gets to freezing temperatures or below, the water can freeze, expand, and break your pipes.
