"Steve just blew out my sprinklers. Two other vendors failed in the 24 hours prior to this. Steve is smart, has years of experience and most importantly, patience to figure out a less than straightforward issue. And he was no more expensive than anyone else. AND I paid someone who showed up and failed just an hour prior who told me it wasn't doable and that I had wasted his time. I adore Steve. I will be calling him again. Here's his website; http://treasurevalleyrepairs.com"

Steve has done the blowouts on my sprinklers for the past couple years. The first year he came over to blow out my sprinklers, he informed me that my sprinklers had already been blown out for the year, and didn't charge me anything. This showed me he was an honest man, so I've used him as my handyman ever since. The past week I had him come out and fix a major leak from my water supply. He allowed me to do part of the digging work to save some money, worked me into an extremely busy schedule to get the job done, and came back a couple times to check out some concerns I had regarding the work (the concerns were unwarranted and I'm happy with the repair). My dad always told me that when you find honest people (especially repair folks), hold on to them cause they'll treat you right and act ethically if anything goes wrong. Steve is one of these people. Highly recommended for sure!"

"Before finding The Maintenance Shop, I dreaded annual chore of lining somebody up to blow out the sprinklers. I would call, play phone tag a bit, and then finally connect with somebody to arrange a date. The Maintenance Shop spares me the ordeal: I get notifications of when blowouts are to be performed, I can sign up by e-mail, and I can pay my bill via PayPal. I heartily endorse The Maintenance Shop as one of the still-too-few service providers who understand how to save customers time by using modern communication tools."

Sprinkler Blowout Services

Sprinkler Blowouts And Home Winterization

When you need a sprinkler blowout call The Maintenance Shop. We have done over 12,000 sprinkler blowouts in the Treasure Valley over the last 20 years. Our service area for sprinkler blowouts in Idaho is primarily in Meridian, Boise, Garden City, Hidden Springs, Avimor, Nampa, Caldwell, Eagle, Star, and Kuna, But also blow out sprinklers in Middleton, Melba, Parma, Emmett, and Idaho City. Certain areas such as Parma, Melba, Emmett, etc., have a trip charge added to the cost of the sprinkler blowout. We service residential and commercial systems as well as large acreage or farm property. You will see the same persons doing your sprinkler blowout yera after year; no sub-contractors as in many of the other companies. You can rely on someone who will become familiar with your property.

Sprinkler Blowout CompressorWhen The Maintenance Shop performs sprinkler blowouts we use on the the minimum amount of air pressure required by your particular system. We start out a 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. Email us for home winterization and RV rates.

Why You Should Have Your Sprinklers Blown Out

Damage From Frozen PipeThis is an example of the damage caused by water freezing in 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 the previous fall.
