Winterize Irrigation Systems and RPZ
 
Posted on Thursday November 17, 2011
 
If you have an irrigation system and rpz, do not forget to winterize your system to prevent pipes freezing.
 
To prevent your irrigation system from freezing and bursting, you will need to winterize the system.  Winterizing your irrigation system is really pretty simple:
    1. Turn off the water to the irrigation system at main valve.
    2. Set the automatic irrigation controller to the "rain" setting.
    3. Turn on each of the valves to release pressure in the pipes.
    4. Drain all of the water out of any irrigation components that might freeze.

There are many websites with more detailed instruction to winterize your irrigation system.
