In Denver and Boulder, the time to schedule your sprinkler shut down is late August and early September. If you wait too long, sprinkler companies may not be able to accommodate your request.
Blowing out your sprinkler properly every year is extremely important and will save you money. If you don’t, your lines may freeze during the winter and when you go to turn it on in spring, you may have quite the repair job to fix the frozen system!
Make sure you unhook your hoses from the house as well. Leaving them hooked up over winter can also cause expensive damage when the water freezes from the pipe to the hose.
If you have questions, make sure you call one of our pre-screened sprinkler companies that exclusively serve the Denver area and they’ll be happy to help you.
