Jan 15, 2015Is your plumbing system ready for the winter? These tips can help you prevent cold weather plumbing problems in your home. Of course, if you do experience any issues, we're here to help!
Winter Plumbing Tips:
- For Your Kitchen - Winter meals can be heavier in consistency. Be sure to keep fats, bones, peels and other fibrous foods out of your drains and garbage disposals. These foods can damage your plumbing system. Dispose of them in a separate container.
- For Your Bathroom - Love taking hot showers on cool days? Make sure your hot water heater is in good shape! Annual maintenance will help provide you with hot water when you need it most.
- For Your Garage - Make sure that any exposed pipes are well insulated. During the winter, your garage or basement can get cold. Exposed pipes are prone to freezing when the temperature drops. Keep you water from freezing, expanding, and breaking your plumbing pipes by keeping them insulated.
