Einleitung

Winter is around the corner, which means that it’s getting cold outside, putting your sprinkler system lines to risk of freezing. When water freezes, it expands. This hydro-expansion can cause fittings, sprinklers, valves, pumps, pipes and other parts of irrigation systems to burst and break. Draining your system of all water is the only way to ensure that it will still be in working order when spring arrives.
