Every year, before the first freeze, the ritual of irrigation “blow out” becomes the priority for all irrigation systems in the Treasure Valley where the frost level extends below the depth of the installed piping.
My Sprinklers Blown Out provides this service for Residential, Home Owners Associations, Property Management Companies, and Lawn Care Companies.
It is recommended that a qualified contractor perform this type of “Winterization” method. The blow out method utilizes an air compressor with a Cubic Foot per Minute (CFM) rating of 125-185 for any mainline of 2″ or less and a PSI of 50-80.
Do not let your pipes freeze and risking damage to your system.
When you're ready to turn back on your sprinkler system in the spring, give us a call to schedule an appointment with us! We will come out to your property and perform the following start-up services:
Using our core aerator machines, we pull 1/2" to 1" plugs from your lawn opening up the soil to allow water and nutrients to better penetrate the ground which in turn develops a better root system and healthier lawn.

We warranty our blowouts up until the first freezing temperature of 32 degrees or colder is reported anywhere in the Treasure Valley. We do not warranty any heads or piping (PVC or Metal) that is not buried in-ground and are exposed to open air including backflows, pumps, fittings and filters. We will do everything we can to properly winterize backflows by opening the test cocks, turning the ball valves to a 45 degree angle and opening the drain valve, but we will not be held liable if a break occurs. We do not warranty above-ground pumps. We will pull the drain valve and blow water out of them, but it is the responsibility of the homeowner to ensure their pump is completely dry. We strongly recommend if possible, to disconnect and remove your above ground pump and store inside. We do not warranty deep shut and drain valves. There is no way to winterize these valves and over time they can and do fail.
For sprinkler installation and repair work performed, we warranty all sprinklers parts that fail in the same season they are installed in.
