Winterizing Your PVB

Gleannloch Farms MUD 367 Residents:

As temperatures begin to drop over the next few weeks, we may encounter possible freezing weather for short-term or longer-term periods. Winterizing your sprinkler system, primarily the above-ground Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB) could end up saving you money from repairing or replacing this item upon bursting from a hard freeze.

The following video walks you through the process in a clear and concise step-by-step process.

If you have any questions about these steps, please send Dustin Qualls an email at dustinqualls@hotmail.com. Thanks, and stay warm!

Fall Tips

  • Now is the time to turn off your irrigation system until March or April and manually operate if you feel it is necessary.
  • Most of the grass in our district is going dormant. Continued irrigation may cause fungal infections that won’t be noticeable until the spring or early summer.
  • Feel free to mulch but don’t water. There will be adequate rain during the fall and winter to provide moisture for plant roots.
