Answer: Less than one hour
Explanation: Winterizing an average residential sprinkler system takes one man about 15-30 minutes. Winterization utilizes an air compressor with a Cubic Foot per Minute (CFM) rating of 80-100 for any mainline of 2" or less. Caution: a small shop compressor (1-3 HP) will not have enough "free" air to properly winterize the system. Do not attempt to fully charge the holding tank then release the highly-pressurized air flow into the mainline to compensate for the compressor's lack of CFM.

GrassRoots Irrigation Service
ProMatcher
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.
