You’re running out of time to winterize your sprinkler systems. There’s another blast of freezing weather coming Sunday, so it looks like Saturday would be a good day to take care of your property.

Experts say turning the water off and purging lines with air can keep your system from freezing and being damaged.

It only takes a few minutes and could save you from costly repairs next spring.

Don’t forget those drip systems around your gardens and trees. They’re easily exposed to a hard freeze and burst.
