Lawn Sprinkler Winterization Cost

Is it time to winterize your irrigation system?

The average cost to winterize a sprinkler system is about $78.21 for a typical residential irrigation system. For most projects, you should not expect to pay more than $100 as prices tend to range from $60-95 per visit.

5 Important Items to Consider:

1. Geographic location. Where you live may have a significant impact on the cost of having your sprinkler system winterized. If you live in a large metropolitan area where the cost of living is fairly high, you should expect to pay slightly more for lawn sprinkler services.

2. Schedule ahead of time! It’s best to schedule your appointment as far ahead of time as possible. It may even help you save a few dollars. The whole process should take no longer than two hours. Also, failing to winterize your sprinkler system before the first freeze may have unfortunate consequences. Cracked pipes and valves can be expensive to repair.

3. Number of sprinkler zones. Many contractors will provide a quote for your project based on the number of zones in your irrigation system. As the number of zones increases, so will the cost of your project. The contractor will use compressed air to blow out any excess water from all of the underground water pipes.

4. Spring activation. Many sprinkler companies will offer a package deal or promotion that includes both winterization and spring re-activation. After the cold winter months, your sprinkler system may need a general tune-up, replacement sprinkler heads, and other minor repairs. You may be able to save a little money by bundling these services.

5. Finding a reputable company. It’s important to do a little research before hiring a local business. Taking the time to get several estimates may end up saving you quite a bit of money. You should also ask if the company offers a warranty on their services. Are they properly licensed and insured? Cost should not be the only factor in your decision making process.

Before hiring any business, you should always check references and ensure that you get everything in writing to avoid any discrepancies.
