How to Winterize the
Backflow Preventer

The backflow preventer is attached to the exterior of your home and is the source of water to the irrigation system. Because this unit and the piping are exposed, the unit can freeze and burst in only a few hours of below freezing temperatures.

When temperatures are forecast for below 32 degrees, it is important to follow the draining procedure below to prevent damage to your system.

1. Turn off main shut-off valve to the system (typically near the street)

2. Use a screw driver to open drain plugs (A)

3. Turn valves (B) to a 45 degree angle
(half open-half closed) position.


Remember, it is less costly to properly winterize the system in the Fall than to repair damaged fittings, piping, valves, sprinklers and other components in the Spring.
