Winterize Your Faucets
Tis’ the season for freezing weather! It’s been a record low here in Atlanta, GA and if you haven’t already, make sure to winterize your irrigation and outside faucets to prevent freezing and bursting pipes. How to get started? Today’s post will help you breeze through the process!
Plan ahead! Instead of waiting for the next winter storm to arrive, plan ahead and start winterizing your outside faucets. Pipes usually doesn’t burst where the pipe freezes but at the location of the highest water pressure. Protecting your pipes can prevent this! Dealing with bursting pipes can get costly if they burst in the exterior wall of a home and can cause thousands of dollars of damage to the walls, floors, ceiling and even furniture.
Make sure to inspect all water faucets to double check that they have been disconnected and drained. Use spray foam to insulate and openings around the hose to prevent the cold air. To winterize irrigation pipes in the ground, make sure you remove all water from your sprinklers and hoses. In addition, make sure to shut off all water supply to the lines. If your irrigation system requires a “blow out” method for winterization, contact an irrigation systems specialist, as you could easily damage your lines and sprinkler heads.

I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
