Insulate, Drain, or both? Winterizing your Houston, Texas Lawn Sprinkler System

winterization sprinkler freeze preventionIn the Houston, Texas area we have to worry only about exposed irrigation system piping and components. The underground piping is usually not affected by our kind of freezing weather because the soil acts as an insulator. The temperature of the soil your irrigation system is buried in typically stays above freezing. It is however VERY important to protect exposed pipes and sprinkler system components from freeze. System protection can be achieved by insulating a sprinkler system, draining a sprinkler system, checking o-rings and seals, and more.

JB Irrigation can professionally insulate the affected areas of your sprinkler system. JB Irrigation’s techniques and professional insulating products will even allow your sprinkler system to be kept online through the winter, in case you need to continue to irrigate.
JB Irrigation can also drain your Houston area sprinkler system to prepare it from freeze. However, once the system is drained, it will be offline. If there is a need to irrigate through the winter, the system will need to be drained again to be protected. Draining key components of the system will help ensure no problems when it comes time to start-up the system in the spring.
If you feel you may have a harsh winter coming…for a worry free winter with your sprinkler system…Insulate and drain. If temperatures get low enough, even with insulation water can freeze. Also, it is possible for water to get trapped in a “pocket” or low point of the system or component and freeze.
Contact JB Irrigation to get your sprinkler system protected.

The Anatomy of a Water-Smart Irrigation System

A water-smart irrigation system in a landscape functions much like the systems in a human body. That’s a useful analogy you can share to educate your clients about the value of smart irrigation. Let’s compare the following water-smart products to different organs, functions, and systems in our physical selves.

Start with a smart controller, the brains of the operation

Think of the smart controller as the brain, overseeing all operations necessary for the system to function. By collecting data from sensors, or current weather data in your area, the smart controller will automatically adjust watering schedules to match the weather and the changing of the seasons. Explore smart controller options for your irrigation system, in particular WaterSense labeled smart controllers.

Sensors as the eyes and ears of an irrigation system

Sensors are like the eyes and ears, delivering information to the brain. Rain sensors detect rainfall to avoid overwatering. Sensors shut off an irrigation system during rain events, when the ground is already moist, or even when freezing temps arrive. Adding a rain sensor or temperature sensor will bring additional water savings, and the specific needs of your site will determine which sensors are best. Inquire about sensor options with a JB Irrigation representative today!

A circulatory system with sprinklers and nozzles

Just as high blood pressure can be bad for your body, so can excessive water pressure be unhealthy for an irrigation system. Maintain healthy circulation with water-smart heads and nozzles. These products create larger water drops or streams, which are more resistant to wind and will soak into the soil more easily. Water-efficient sprinklers and nozzles can reduce water use by 30 percent compared to traditional spray nozzles. Contact JB Irrigation for water smart heads and nozzles for your irrigation system.
