Installing a Freeze Proof Sprinkler Water Supply

In this video I show you what’s needed and how to hook up a sprinkler water supply for a cold climate that freezes in the winter. This is the plumbing and all the components that connect the main water supply in a house to the in-ground sprinkler box that directs the water to each sprinkler zone. This includes a water shut-off, pressure vacuum breaker/backflow preventer, valves, air blow-out locations, and sprinkler manifold and valves.


Below is a list of tools/supplies from the video and a couple additional tools that I really like, as well as video/audio gear I use to make these videos. All of these links are generated by Amazon and provide me with a small percentage/kickback should you use them to purchase any of the items I use. Thanks for supporting me and this channel!

You should be able to find all of these pieces at your local hardware/home improvement store. Here’s some amazon links for the bigger components if you prefer to get those online:
