We had been contacted to assist them in achieving a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) qualification, and becoming an environmentally sustainable site. Part of this qualification involves Irrigation Water Management, which is one of Winterberry’s areas of expertise.

Winterizing Your Irrigation System

Tom Shea from Winterberry Irrigation is here to show you how to shut down, blow out, and prepare your sprinkler system for the Winter!

Winter is coming faster than you think, and it is important to get all of the water out of your irrigation system. If you don’t properly winterize your system, the water can freeze in the pipes, and your system won’t be working in the spring.

What’s New in Irrigation?

The scenery for the irrigation industry has changed from the down turn in the nation’s economy. We are all aware of the housing bubble bursting, that has caused many contractors to rely heavily on servicing their existing customers. Communicating the water consumption to homeowners is vital to our nations fresh water supply. Trends on water conservation have evolved into a marketable service for manufacture’s and contractors. Contractors should have the ability to properly address the signs of overwatering in a typical system. They can check for an operational rain sensor, poor irrigation design, water efficient heads and nozzle usage.
