Q: How do I winterize?

A: Winterizing a drip irrigation system is easy. Timers and head assembly components (backflow preventers, filters, pressure regulators) need to be removed and stored indoors. Most drip irrigation parts are made of extremely durable plastic which can withstand freezing temperatures as long as the water is removed from the system. Drip irrigation experts commonly install a threaded end cap at a low point in the system which allows the water to be drained out of the system easily. Once the water is drained out, they simply screw the cap back on and it's ready for the winter. Please refer to our Winterizing Blog for further details.
