Sprinkler and Irrigation System Blow Outs
When summer comes to an end and fall starts to creep in there is one very important thing any Utah property owner must worry about if they have an irrigation or sprinkler system. That is making sure their system is maintained correctly by blowing out the lines of any residual water using compressed air. Sprinkler system piping is usually not buried that deep underground and when the ground starts to freeze, so can the water in your piping. If the water freezes in your irrigation piping or valves it expands and can cause burst pipes and water leaks that are expensive to fix. In Utah the time to get this done is usually October and November.

Can You Blow Out Your Sprinkler Lines On Your Own?
We are often asked by homeowners if they can blow out their irrigation lines on their own with their shop compressor or a little portable compressor. The short answer is no. In order to do this properly you must use an industrial sized air compressor capable of delivering 80-100 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of air at a pressure of 30-50 PSI. Your regular home use air compressor simply doesn’t have that kind of capacity.
