I'm not quite that cold as High Point and will monitor forecasts.

Of course, if you live near High Point, you wait a bit - you can always find temperature records on the web, and you look at the possibility of getting near a record-low temp.

Jersey has it easy - for a sure thing, never open the system prior to the income tax deadline.

I want to avoid blowing out the lines. I'm going to install, bury the PE except where it connects to a head/valve/fitting so I can check for leaks. Then when I think it's safe, turn the water on.

I am "redoing" and adding on to a bit of my system this year alsp. I am going to wait till March/April to start, and will start the water for each zone I install, but I will drain the water out of each line once I test it for leaks BEFORE I fill in the trench since freezing and frost still happens. This includes your mainline. A little tedious, but will pay off if you want to start early and don't want to ruin anything else.

Start up date?

Hi everyone. I've started digging trenches for my new system. Don't want to test until there is no danger of freezing. May 15th is generally last day for frost in northern NJ. So, is there any estimated day where you pros in the area add water to new systems? Or is it a see as you go thing every Spring?
