Frosty Weather and Your Sprinkler System


Do

you

have

a sprinkler

system?






The BACKFLOW PREVENTER in your sprinkler system WILL BREAK IF ICE GETS INSIDE. It is part of its function and design.

TO AVOID BREAKAGE

FROM FREEZING:

1. Turn off the water on both sides (inlet and outlet) of the backflow preventer.

2. Drain it, leaving both sides open (this might require a screwdriver.)

3. After the water drains, cover it with a towel or blanket, and then ...

4. Cover all with a plastic trash bag to waterproof it.
