Sprinkler blowout season in full swing

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - It's time to blowout those sprinklers and KMVT spoke to a licensed professional about what to look out for.

Casey Creek, the owner of 24/7 Backflow Service, said if homeowners don't blowout their sprinklers, it could lead to a huge line break.

"It could cost you sometimes in the couple thousand dollar range, depending on what the damage is, not including all the heads," he said.

Creek said sometimes homeowners like to start blowing out their sprinklers as early as September, but they end up tapering off the beginning of December.

"Weather depending, depends on if the ground freezes or not," he said. "The earlier, the better, I'd recommend. Pretty much shut it off when you want to stop mowing the grass."

Creek urges residents to make sure to have a qualified person do the blowouts to avoid issues in the spring.
