    Houston Freezing Weather Cautions – Protect your Sprinkler Systems

    Tonight the temperature in Houston Texas and San Antonio will drop considerably, so please take precautions with your sprinkler system in case of a hard freeze.

    To help protect your sprinkler system from damage during freezing weather, you must wrap the Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB.)  It is the only water-holding part of the system above ground and it is usually located in the front flower beds or on one side of your house in the back yard.

    There are 2 pipes and on top of one of the pipes there is a metal cap or lid. This cap may burst when the water inside the pipe freezes. Use an old towel, wrap the top or brass cap and tape the tubes to secure it. This will help prevent the water from freezing and thus prevent sprinkler damage.

    Those with tenants, please give them notice to take this precaution.

    Hoy en la noche bajara la temperatura considerablemente por lo que les sugiero que tomen la precaución de cubrir la parte superior del sistema de de riego de sus casas.  Este se encuentra en la parte lateral de la casa.  Son 2 tubos y en la parte superior de uno de los tubos hay como uno especie de tapa metalica.  Esta tapa puede explotar cuando el agua que esta dentro de los tubos se congela.  Utilicen una toalla vieja, envuelven esa tapa y con cinta adhesiva, la sujetan a los tubos para no que no se mueva.  Esto ayudará a que el agua no se congele y así evitan que se rompa la tapa.

    A los que tienen inquilinos, por favor denles aviso para que tomen esta precaución.
