Putting the Irrigation Controllers to rest

I received my first call today about winterizing a drive.  Yes, it is that time of year to drain the pressure transducer and bug and rodent proof the drives for their winter rest.  If you have not done it by now, check out the last blog and you will see a diagram for the best way to configure the piping for your transducer.  This piping also incorporates a gauge and provides an easy means for draining them both so they will not stand the chance of freezing over the winter.

Make sure that the drive enclosure will be secure from becoming a nest for a tribe of mice.  There is nothing worse than the damage those little varmint's can do to the insulation and boards for that matter.  Please, make sure these little buggers can't get in.

For those of you who have been thinking of converting over to a pressurized system, there is no time like the present to start making plans and getting with us for what you will need and to see what will fit into your budget for the coming season.  Remember that if your are throttling back at all for pressure regulation, we can save you big dollars with the installation of a drive on your system.  If you have any questions about doing this, please give me a call.
