Answer: Less than one hour
Explanation: To minimize the risk of freeze damage, you'll need to winterize your irrigation system. In areas where winterization is mandatory, irrigation systems are installed using one of three types of water removal: manual drain, auto drain, or blowout. If you don't know your system type, it is best to use the blowout method. We inspect the system, drain and blow out at appropriate pressure for the system type (PVC or Poly), inspect and drain backflow, complete clock review/system setup.
