Why Should You Winterize?
Many of our customers may wonder why it is important to winterize their system. This year, we serviced a large amount of systems that were not winterized in the past. Many of the repairs performed were directly related to the system not being winterized. We also had quite a few people who had to purchase new pumps. You can avoid costly repairs by protecting your investment. This year, make the choice to winterize your irrigation system, Mist Away system, and pump.
When you winterize your system, you are taking a preventive measure. Winterization is suggested for those who live in areas where the temperature drops below freezing several times a year, or stays below freezing for more than one day. Removing the water from your pipes, valves, and sprinkler heads can save your system from potential serious and costly damage. If water is left in your system during winter months, it can freeze, causing your equipment to expand. This process could occur more than once during the winter. As a result, pipes and valves can become cracked and will need repairing in the spring. If you have a pump, this needs to be done as well.
What to expect when you winterize your system:
Systems with a shut-off valve will have the valve insulated for protection. Automatic systems will need the controller shut down. This can be done by placing the controller in rain mode, keeping the controller on and saving the time and program settings, or by shutting the controller completely off. If the controller is shut down completely, it will need to be re-programmed in the spring. The water in your system will then be drained. Those with a backflow preventer or a valve above the ground will need to have these insulated. If you have a pump, winterize this as well.
Mist Away mosquito systems should be winterized for the same reasons as irrigation systems. The water that remains in the lines can become frozen, damaging the system’s lines, nozzles, flow meters, and pumps. When you winterize, it helps keep your system healthy and effective!

Mosquito Control Made Easy MistAway Mosquito Misting System
Mosquito control does not have to be tough. The MistAway system makes mosquito control easy and worry free. You can let your mosquito misting system work automatically, or you can set, reset, or override it with a handheld remote… and it’ll provide you and your family worry-free, hassle-free outdoor mosquito control.
We will customize your MistAway Mosquito Misting System to fit your yard perfectly. The automatic misting control unit can be placed anywhere near an outdoor water faucet. Mosquito misting nozzles are placed around the perimeter of your property (on eaves of the house, fence, or risers) for a mosquito-free yard.
The controller unit is programmed to automatically run early in the morning and again at dusk, when mosquitoes are most active and other beneficial insects – like bees and butterflies are not.
The fine mist floats a bit, then settles on the grass and landscaping, killing any mosquitoes it comes in contact with.
Most of all, reducing mosquitoes on your property means less health risks and discomfort for you and your family.
So whether you are looking to improve your outdoor living or just concerned about the Zika virus, MistAway can be the easy solution for you.

Ever hear “You Get what You Pay For”?
But what about Quality Service?
You can be rest assured that you get quality service with Love Irrigation. We have been providing the Jackson-Metro communities with quality service and installation in areas of irrigation systems, French drains, landscape lighting, backflow certification and mosquito Mist Away systems for over 30 years.
We would like to share with you what we have learned over the years. We know finding a contractor can be overwhelming. Here are just a few things to think about before making a large investment decision.
When looking for the right company to service your yard’s needs remember that cheapest is not always the best. You may get prices from other contractors that are much lower than ours. Be aware! With the current economy, there are many “newbies” in this business. Most do not have Love Irrigation’s credentials or experience. They do not use the same quality materials. Nor do they have the same quality service standards. Love Irrigation takes pride in providing our customers with commercial quality materials. The technicians and installers for these businesses are usually uninformed and inexperienced. In the long run these types of business do not last. This provides a false impression of the value of professional service and products. This has a negative effect on you, the consumer.
These “Lowballers” are in unable to gain customers by any other means than the low price they offer. They tend to take shortcuts to cut costs. This comprises quality. Businesses like these typically do not stay in business very long. When additional service or warranty work is needed in the future, they are nowhere to be found.
We, at Love Irrigation, set our prices as fairly as possible. We have high standards in not only the product we use but in our quality of work. We firmly believe our experience and quality of service gives peace of mind and is what has kept us in business all these years.
