This is a 20 year old landscape we installed in downtown Puyallup. This courtyard has graced the front entry for years and continues to improve with age.
Here is a beautiful log home in the country. We completed this landscape a couple of years ago and it still stands out as one of our most enjoyable projects.

Winter Shut-down

Here are some tips if you want to do it yourself OR go to Lynn's picture below and call for help.

What?
Turning off your sprinkler system and bleeding or blowing out the water for the winter season.

Why?
So the system components won't freeze. The backflow assembly, valves, sprinklers and, in really cold winters, the mainline and lateral pipes can freeze and break.

How?
  • Turn off the main shut-off valve (if there is one - otherwise the first valve on the backflow assembly).
  • Open drain valves (if any).
  • If no drains, connect an air compressor to either the last test cock on the backflow assembly or a blow-out device connected to your system and run air threw each zone by turning on the zones at the controller. Don't over blow; this can damage various sprinkler components. Every drop of water does not need to be purged.
  • Winterize the backflow assembly by turning the two main valves and the test cocks at 45 degrees (half open and half closed). A couple of these valves may need to remain closed if you are using the first main valve as the shut-off valve.

When?
Do this before a real cold snap. Normally this isn't a problem until mid to late December. We may have a few frosts before then but that won't hurt your system.

After Thanksgiving we'll be promoting this event by having people LIKE Olympic on Facebook and then sponsor a family for every 50 new LIKERS.

Last year we sponsored five families. Yahoo!! Here is a video of Sister Pat and me from last year explaining what they do:
