    I look at the average rainfall in the month of april... nope dont need a sprinkler until actually the middle of May.... If it is a dry spring though ( like last year, I turned mine on the last week of april and it froze up.. It went from 10 days of 75 degree weather to 4 days below freezing last year.. I was scared of freeze probs

    Last year I started my system up on April 16 and it snowed twice between then and the beginning of May...not freezing. I took the chances because it is also dry here and started it up today. I only run it once a week during the rainy spring, sometimes not even once a week it can rain so long here.
