Sign Up Below For A Sprinkler Blowout
When you need a sprinkler blowout call The Maintenance Shop. We have done several thousand sprinkler blowouts in the treasure valley over the last 16 years. Our service area for sprinkler blowouts in Idaho is primarily in Meridian, Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, Eagle, Star, and Kuna, but have also blown out sprinklers in Middleton and as far as Melba. Service to the outer areas and outside of Ada and Canyon county is based on demand. We service residential and commercial systems as well as acreage or farm property. We take pride in our work. You will see the same person doing your sprinkler blowout year after year; no sub-contractors as in many of the other companies! You can rely on someone who will become familiar with your property.
When The Maintenance Shop performs sprinkler blowouts we use only the minimum amount of air pressure required by your particular system. We start out at low pressure and then increase as necessary to make sure all the water is out of the lines. Pipes and fitting connections can weaken with age so care has to be taken to not cause a break in the line. If sprinkler heads are old or have been damaged in some way by lawn mowers, weed whackers, etc. the chance of "blowing" a sprinkler head increases. Also keep the filters in your sprinkler heads clean; if water can't get through properly it also increases the chance of a "geyser" when air is put through the lines.
The Maintenance Shop also winterizes homes as well. If your home is going to remain vacant over the winter months call or email us! We will drain the water heater, remove water from the toilet tanks and bowls, and blowout the water in the lines that run through your home. If you are putting your RV or camper away for the winter we can remove the water from them as well. Call or email for rates!
Why You Should Have Your Sprinklers Blown Out
This is an example of the damage caused by water freezing in a PVC pipe. This particular section was 10 feet long, but we also replaced a 3 foot section in the parking strip, and another broken pipe under the driveway that was almost 20 feet long.
By the time we were finished with all the sprinkler system repairs at this home the bill was near $400.00; all because the system was not blown out last year.

How We Organize Our Sprinkler Blowouts
All addresses are put in my GPS for better time and route management. Keep in mind that a blowout request from a week ago and one from two days ago may be done on the same day depending on where I am at in my schedule. I WILL get to everyone on my list. If yours hasn't been done while in the scheduled area it will be done on the next round.
Factors that can effect our routing are whether we can access the properties and find valve boxes without difficulty, how many more sprinkler blowouts get added to my list, and how many stop me on the street for blowouts while I am in their neighborhood.
