Winter Plumbing Maintenance Tips and Tricks

Winter Plumbing Maintenance Tips and Tricks



We all want to save money, especially during the winter months. The heater is almost always on full blast. Your energy bill may be adding up. You also want to make sure all your plumbing works the way it is supposed to. The last thing you need is for something to break down during one of those snowy nights.

Why not save some money and help reduce your stress levels by following these 3 plumbing tips for the winter?

1) Keep an eye on your water pressure. The last thing you need is a leak. A small leak may add up to a pipe bursting, especially in the colder weather. This could be considered worst case scenario in many cases. This is why you need to stop the leaks before they start. Call an expert from our team to come in and take a look. One small leak may not seem like much, but it will add up to something greater.

2) Do you have any hoses lying around the outside of your home? Take the time to drain your hose and disconnect it. If the weather gets too cold, it can cause water to potentially freeze inside. This can cause a water blockage to occur. This will create problems for your inner water lines. What happens when the water line breaks? There is going to be damage inside your home.

3) You should have shut-off valves in your home. They can be found under the sink or in your basement. Twist them off every so often. This twisting will go a long way to preventing water damage in your home. This will also help you to save some money along the way.
