Additional Helpful Information for Sprinkler System Owners
Proper valves shut off position.
Lots of people have "little helpers" about. Just in case they "help" you with your sprinkler system, this is how the sprinkler valves should properly be positioned.
The valves should be at 45°
This assures the system can properly drain and IF there is Any water still in the system, pressure won't build up and crack the pipes.
Main System Shut-off Valve
90° to the Pipe is Off.
The main Valve will be found inside your home, usually in the basement. If you don't have a basement you will usually find this close to the water heater.
How to Fix the Spring Flood
However, I've had soooo many calls over the years, I want to teach everyone how to make this simple fix.
Someone left the drain valve open after draining the system during winterization.
You've got a flood in Spring
Shut the valve off. Voila - no more spring flood.
Pass this along to your neighbors! This is one problem we hate getting called to fix. Nobody wants to pay to have a professional turn off an open valve.
