Getting Ready for Winter

Winterizing your system and lawn will insure a smooth startup next spring and a beautiful lawn next season.  Please take a moment to read the tips below, which are also posted on our resources page.

For those of you who have meters, they are your responsibility to care for including repair and maintenance. The most common failure is freezing during the winter. Please remove your meter, drain all water, let dry, then store for the winter in a dry place such as a shop or garage. Be sure to call your ending meter reading in to the office.
