Lake Oswego Sprinkler System Maintenance Q&A

Does Drake’s 7 Dees provide other irrigation system services besides maintenance?
Do you work on any brand of sprinkler system?

The Lake Oswego sprinkler system maintenance experts at Drake’s 7 Dees are experienced with all brands of irrigation system equipment, including

  • Rainbird
  • Toro
  • Hunter
  • Weathermatic
  • and others
Why are freezing temperatures a concern for my irrigation system?
When water freezes, it expands. This means if a pipe is filled with water and that water freezes, it can put enough pressure on the pipe to break it. This problem will affect the pressure output of a sprinkler system and will likely create a large wet spot in the ground – not to mention needlessly increasing your water bill. To repair a broken irrigation pipe, it must be dug up and the affected section replaced. This can be a costly and disruptive process, which is why it’s essential to properly winterize your sprinkler system each season. Don’t wait until the cold weather is already here!
How often do I need sprinkler system maintenance?
To ensure that your irrigation system is operating at peak efficiency and is protected from freezing temperatures, we offer a twice-yearly service to winterize your system before the cold weather hits and turn it on and check it out again when things thaw out. We are also available to do one or the other of those services, as needed. Contact us for more details.
