DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THE COLD THIS YEAR! Irrigation systems should be winterized each year before the first freeze to avoid damage. Once winterized, the system will be turned off and restarted in the spring. If you are unsure of how to drain your irrigation system, contact a licensed plumber or building professional. See Yavapai County Contractors Association website.
