The Heritage Irrigation system has once again been successfully winterized.  
This is a 3 day process for us.  We hook a 375 cfm compressor up to the pump-house mainline and blow the water out of the irrigation pipes.  Day one we complete the two zones on the North side of Grove street and day two we blow out the South side zone.  During day three we blow out the pond fill line, hydraulic control tubing's for all of the heads and we then finish by blowing out the bathroom water line.  
Taking your time and completing this job properly can not be overstated.  Winter is not kind to excessive water left in PVC piping.
Above is Clayton finishing up on our last head of the season down on #15 green.
