Sprinkler System Winterize?


Hello,

I moved into a new house and I was wondering if I need to blow out my sprinkler system. Heard there are some that need it and some that don't. How do I tell?

Thanx!

I've never heard of a sprinkler system that you dont have to blow out in order to avoid the damage caused by freezing water left in the pipes. I thought maybe if you were in an area that didn't freeze you'd be fine but if I were you I'd blow them out.

I was in your same shoes a couple years ago. I didn't blow my out because I simply didn't know better and when I turned them on the next year I had a crack the length of my ball valve.
