COLORADO SPRINGS – Temperatures are getting colder in Colorado and it is time for homeowners to get their sprinkler systems blown out. If not done in time, pipes could freeze and burst and end up costing thousands to repair. Blow out service costs range between $50 to $100.
Most homeowners blow out their sprinklers during mid September to early October before freezing temperatures arrive. Once your sprinkler system is blown out, remember to water the lawn with a hose during dry spells. This is also a good time to aerate and winterize your lawn. If you have some bare spots you can also spread some grass seed at this time.
