Happy New Year, Frisco! Help amplify our city's water conservation efforts by pledging to include the following resolutions in your plans for 2023.

Resolution #1 - Schedule a Free Sprinkler System Checkup: On average, 70% of the total water used annually by Frisco residents is applied to lawns by automatic irrigation systems. You can start 2023 off right - make sure your sprinkler system is in good working order and programmed correctly. Schedule a free sprinkler system checkup today to receive assistance from the city’s licensed irrigators. 

Resolution #2 - Attend a WaterWise Workshop: Are you interested in learning about rainwater harvesting, sprinkler system maintenance, or earth-friendly gardening techniques, but aren’t sure where to start? This year, attend our free WaterWise Workshops to learn more about water conservation from local experts.

Resolution #3 - Make the Switch to Water-Efficient Appliances: The beginning of a new year is a great time to start fresh by replacing your old washing machine with a high-efficiency model. When shopping for new water appliances, you can just look for the EPA WaterSense designation. Products with WaterSense labels are independently certified and can help save water, energy, and money.

Thank you for helping us stay WaterWise in 2023!
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

I'm worried about my irrigation line during winter freezes. I was wondering if I should do anything to add any extra insulation to my system's valves, like the one pictured below?

No it is not required to cover or protect this type of Back flow preventer (DCA). You can however take an extract precaution step and close the device during the winter, this will eliminate the constant water pressure on the lines. Turn the 2 blue handles in the vertical position (up and down) to close. We also recommend having the controller in the Off position during Freezing temperatures.
Let me know if I can help with any other questions.
Thank you.
