The cold winter months can creep up on you without you even knowing about it. And if you don’t take the necessary precautions, that can lead to many unexpected plumbing disasters. Is that what you want to do this winter? Worry about broken pipes and flooding?
We all know what the answer to that question is. Let me give a few tips to help get ready for a worry-free winter concerning plumbing.
Think about your water hose connected to your outdoor tap or faucet. It is easy to forget this hose completely and let the hose remain connected to the faucet throughout the winter. The reminder will come to you too late. The pipes will end up damaged and even broken due to the water frozen inside the hose. So don’t let that happen this winter and remember to remove your hose from the tap outside.
Another Plumbing advice is to make use of your shut-off valves. Cutting the water off using your shut-off valves can help prevent damages to pipes due to freezing.
Your outdoor faucets and pipes are the most prone to damages in the winter. Leaky taps need to be fixed right away and made sure that they are ready for the winter. Covering them appropriately can help them withstand the severe cold temperatures during the winter months.
