Here at Georgetown Irrigation Specialists, we are commonly asked when should you clean your sprinklers. This being said we wrote this short article to cover this point.
First when sprinkler systems are turned off during winter months, they should be cleaned before the spring season. Over the long period of winter, dirt and debris have most likely accumulated in the sprinkler heads, causing foul odor and potential blockages and rust stains. It is also possible that the sprinkler heads may be damaged or broken over the months when it was not used as they may have been frozen during the cold weather.
Second, you also need to clean the sprinkler system after a large storm, most especially if the storm brought huge deal of flooding and muddy run-off. In this case, the sprinkler lines and heads may be filled with soil debris and mud, which need to cleaned out to make the sprinkler system work properly again.
