Troubleshooting - Preparing your System for Winter
Preparing Your System for the Winter Months In South Texas .
Sprinkler systems in the South Texas area do not normally require any special maintenance or preparation for winter. Ground freezing in this area is rare and if system piping is installed per State law, it should present little if any concern.
In northern areas of the country, systems are blown out with air at the beginning of the cold season; in Houston this is never done. However, due to brief cold snaps that sometimes occur, exposed piping, such as runs under decks should be insulated. Sprinkler risers, or pipes that protrude out of the ground to water beds and shrubs, usually drain down to below soil levels and need no other protection.
NEVER TURN YOUR SYSTEM OFF OVER THE WINTER MONTHS! (if you are in the Houston area)
During the winter months, you should adjust your watering schedule to reduce watering cycles. Shrubs, grass and the system will perform better if periodic watering is performed during the winter.
