If you want to avoid this in the spring, FALL is the time to make plans for having your sprinklers blown out.
Be sure, after you have had your sprinkler lines blown out, that you have the main valve reopened. This will allow any remaining water to drain from your system into the larger irrigation pipes to avoid it freezing and causing the the valve to break.
If not drained from the valve, come spring you could find you have your own personal geyser, which is usually the cause of our irrigation water being turned off several times in the spring... to allow a homeowner to have the valve repaired.
Be considerate of your neighbors and have your irrigation system blown out and properly shut down for the winter.

While we experienced a few bumps in the road to getting our ground water pump operational we were able to provide water for most of the month of September.
Now that the weather is turning cooler and the extended forecast is calling for more of the same with continued periods of precipitation we will be shutting down our ground water pump and allow the pond to drain.
The last day that pump will run will be Friday, October 4, 2013.
Yesterday, April 30th just after noon, the irrigation water was turned off because a homeowner experienced a break in their main valve. That break has been repaired and the water is back on.
Idaho Landscape turned off the irrigation pump (water) because one of our neighbors on Garber has a broken valve and was flooding 2 other yards. They will work with the home owner tomorrow to get the valve repaired and the water back on.
