DENVER -- It's that time of year again. A fall ritual. Just about everyone's doing it.
It's time to blow it out your grass. The water in your sprinkler system, that is.
"You need a large, powerful compressor. You're gonna need a screwdriver and you're gonna need a pet cock attachment," said Jevard Hitch with the Association of Landscape Contractors of Colorado.
A compressor runs about $900, Hitch said.
Hitch recommends letting the experts blow out the lines.
"No. 1, it's going to be done right. No. 2, you have recourse if it's done wrong. And No. 3 it saves you the time and headaches for trying to figure out how to do something that you really have no interest in," Hitch said.
