Is it too late to winterize your sprinkler system?

   Is it too late to winterize your sprinkler system?  

The answer is no! Not until we have a deep long freeze. 

 With it already getting below freezing, the cold has not yet caused too much damage to lawn sprinkler systems. The bad news is, you are running out of time. 

The colder it gets the lower the frost goes in the ground and damages more of your sprinkler system.  Right now your sprinkler system has not had much damage because only a small part of it is above the ground.  Bellow the ground the frost line has not hit the sprinkler system yet in most areas.

  How does damage occur?  It happens from water freezing and expanding about 10% of its size causing things to split and crack.   The majority of sprinkler repair we do in the spring is caused by not having a sprinkler system properly winterized.  We can still blow out your water in your sprinkler now. Contact Us

During the Fall season,  the cold temperatures start to penetrate the soil and begins to freeze the ground. The cold temperatures have not yet penetrated to the depth that would hurt the majority of your sprinkler system.  This depth is known as the frost line. The frost line is the depth in which everything above it freezes. Sprinkler lines are typically between 6 to 12 inches deep, the frost line varies goes much deeper than sprinkler system pipes. To avoid damage, pipes with water in them need to be buried below that line, such as your water line to your home.


 In Northern Minnesota, the frost line can reach 100 inches and Northern Texas it can reach 20 inches. If the frost line hits your underground pipes in your sprinkler system it could total your sprinkler system, causing lots of damage. 

 For your frost line please visit 

      Once the lines freeze, the water turns into ice and expands, the expansion causes damage.  

To avoid the damage you need to winterize your sprinkler system.

We are still winterizing sprinkler systems!  Give us a call and save money in the spring.

Sprinkler Winterization 3 Facts (Blow Out)

  Contacts us:   

1) When to Winterize your sprinkler system

When temperatures reach around 50°f or lower it a great time to blow the water out the sprinkler system.  Your lawn will begin going into dormancy start going a greenish-yellow and will stay that way till spring. According to Central sod farms (1), Inc. the lawn/grass does this to preserve energy. With your lawn in dormancy, it does not need watering then.

2) Why Winterize Your Lawn Sprinkler Unit?

Getting your lawn sprinkler system winterized for the cold weather is crucial for keeping your lawn irrigation system ready for spring and summer next year. This will help with the costs of sprinkler repair. The best way to winterize a sprinkler system the water must be blown out of your lawn sprinkler system with a high air volume air compressor to prevent freezing.

When water is expanded as it freezes by 10% this energy has to go somewhere and it will crack the hardest of materials. Ice will break any part on a sprinkler system including steel pipes and backflow devices, causing a lot of damage and costing money in the spring for sprinkler repair work.  Water can move a 10-15 ton of rocks and a 3-inch solid steel ship hull when frozen. Your sprinkler system has no chance with this amount of power (2). That is why you need to remove water in your lawn sprinkler system in the Northern United States.

Here at Sprinkler Master in the Northern United States, we are professional sprinkler technicians. All we do is repair sprinklers, and the majority of sprinkler repair is caused by sprinklers not being winterized, or not doing it properly.

3) How to winterize a sprinkler system

Can you do it yourself or have a friend do it? Yes, with the proper tools, and knowledge. The majority of sprinkler repair in the comes from sprinkler systems not being blown out correctly.

The right air compressor

The major key when winterizing a sprinkler system is having a large volume of air go through the sprinkler system.  To do this the common person needs to rent an air compressor for around the same price as Sprinkler Master charges to come do it for you. We are licensed, insured and back up our work. Most sprinkler systems cost around $75 to winterize.

Can I use my home or small air compressor?  When people use their small air compressor almost always it does not work and will take most of your day up. You need around 80-100 cfm (3), an average residential air compressor does 2 cfm. Blowing it out with a small compressor is taking a big risk(4).  To blowout your system it does not matter if your air compress goes up to 100-200 psi you will need air volume and psi to push all the water out of the sprinkler pipes (5).


Here at Sprinkler Master, all we do is sprinkler system repair. We do thousands of sprinkler repairs every year and a majority of our customers are people who did not winterized their sprinklers system right. We are licensed and insured; we back up our work!

Sprinkler winterization(blowout) prices start at $75 for an average sprinkler system under 6 zones.

The Lawn, a Status Symbol for Americans

Lawns have become an American status symbol, we all silently observe whether the grass has been cut, if it’s green or dying, or if there are weeds growing or not. Often times we can even form an opinion about a person we’ve never met completely based on the condition of their lawn. Have you ever wondered where this obsession with lawns came from and why we seem to care so much about our front lawns? At Sprinkler Master we found some interesting facts about the history of American lawns!


The first people to have “lawns” were the English and French. In the 1700’s many rich and high-class citizens started to have landscapers include nicely cut grass areas in their gardens. It was very difficult and expensive to maintain because the only way to cut your grass was with animals or servants with hand scythes.


Thomas Jefferson was one of the first people in America to take this European idea and try it in his own yard. A few other rich Americans followed but it was still very expensive to maintain and keep your grass looking nice. Because it cost so much to maintain a lawn, if someone had a nice lawn everyone knew they had money and were better off than most. 


The first lawnmower was built in England around 1830 by Edwin Budding. Edwin had modified a carpet cutter and made adjustments so it could cut grass instead of carpet. The lawnmower developed over time from horse-drawn, to steam-powered, and eventually gas powered like we see today


As lawn mowers developed they were easier to produce and cheaper to buy.  As time went by, soon the common man could own a lawnmower and have their own lawn. Now everywhere we go almost every home has a lawn and you can even buy a robotic lawn mower that will mow your lawn for you! 


While almost everyone may have a lawn, it’s still important to maintain your lawn. Having a nice lawn adds to the value of your home and makes your home more inviting. A good looking lawn is still seen today as a sign of a well put together life. At Sprinkler Master we want to help you have a great lawn!  Contact your local Sprinkler Master to get your sprinklers repaired today!

sprinkler zone won’t turn on? 

Solution:   Find the Valve Box: First thing to do is to locate the valve box. The valve box is generally a green box located somewhere on the lawn. Inside the valve box there is generally 1-4 valves as pictured below.  If you can’t find the valve box call us:  

Locate Correct Valve & Turn on Manually: The best way to locate which valving on, is to e isn’t turn on each valve manually. This is done by twisting the solenoid ¼ turn counter-clockwise. The solenoid is the cylinder looking part of the valve with the two wires sticking out of it as seen below (for most valves).  

This should turn open the valve, and turn on the sprinklers. If the solenoid will not twist, the bleeder screw can also be loosened to turn on the valve. The bleeder screw is the smaller screw that is also located on the valve. When the bleeder screw is loosened it will leak a little bit.


Confirm Wiring is Correct:  Once the valve is located, make sure the wires are connected correctly. As shown in the picture, each valve has two wires coming off of it. One wire from each valve needs to be connected to the common wire. This wire is usually colored white or black. Then, the remaining wire from each valve needs to go to its own differently colored wire. For instance, if there was a valve box with 3 valves: valve 1, 2 and 3. Then I would connect 1 wire from each valve to my white wire. Then valve 1’s extra wire would go to a red wire, valve 2’s extra would go to a blue wire, and valve 3’s extra would go to a green wire. It doesn’t matter which wire from a valve is connected to the common vs. its own strand.


Check the Solenoid: If the zone is still not turning on after the wiring is confirmed to be correct, check to see if the solenoid of the malfunctioning valve is working or broken. 3 nine-volt batteries connected in series are needed in order to check the solenoid. Take both wires of the solenoid and touch them to the battery, one to the “+“ end and one to the “–“ end as pictured.

Once the solenoid is touching both ends of the battery, the solenoid should start clicking. If the solenoid doesn’t click, it needs to be replaced. To replace the solenoid simply twist the bad one off and screw in a replacement. When removing a solenoid from a valve the secondary water needs to be shut off.  


Redo Wire Connections: If the solenoid is working and the valve still will not turn on when turned on from the timer, redo the wire connections that are involved with the malfunctioning valve. Simply cut off the old wire nuts, strip the two wires that were cut, and reconnect the wires with waterproof wire nuts. Also try and trace the wire as much as possible. Look for any cuts or big scrapes along the wire where one of the strands could have been cut off. Also look at the timer and make sure that the wires are all connected correctly to the timer. Each timer should come with it’s own user guide to help with wiring. 

vi. Extra Trouble Shooting: If you have done all steps, and the zone still isn’t turning on, then you may want to replace the entire guts (diaphragm, spring, etc..) of the valve. To do this please refer part b where I explain how to repair a valve that is not turning off.

Another thing that could happen is that the flow control could be all the way off. The flow control is another screw on the valve. Not all valves have flow controls. The flow control screw needs to be loosened all the way for full pressure. If the flow control is tightened, then the pressure will be so bad that the sprinklers won’t even come up.

If the zone isn’t turning on all the way and it isn’t a flow control issue, look for areas in your lawn where there might be a broken line. Broken sprinkler lines will take all the pressure. This causes the other sprinklers to have low pressure or even not come up at all.
