Plumbing Checks to Make Before the Winter Freeze


Having your plumbing checked out before winter will help you avoid any bigger problems when the cold weather hits!

The leaves are almost completely fallen off from the trees which can only mean one thing – winter is very nearly here. The winter season is particularly tough on your plumbing. Many things can go wrong while you’re spending your days and evenings indoors. As you’re going through prepping your home for the winter chill, consider spending the time to make sure your plumbing is in top shape. You’ll save yourself a lot of headache by having any problems addressed now!

Frozen Piping

As water sits in pipes, low temperatures and poor insulation can lead it to freeze. Even more worryingly, frozen water can cause these pipes to completely burst! This can cause significant water damage to your home or property, not to mention the costly replacement of your water piping system.  A trusted plumbing company can check your pipes for any signs of weakness and make the necessary fixes to ensure the water in your pipes will continue to flow during the winter.

Busted Water Heater

Warm water is a necessity during the cold weather. Nothing feels quite as satisfying as a hot shower on a cold day! But if your water heater is not functioning properly, you may not be able to indulge in these amenities. Take the time to check it out now and have any problems addressed before the winter sets in.

Septic System Backup

The last thing you’ll want during the holiday season is a backed up septic system! Give your septic system some attention this fall and ensure that your home’s sewage is flowing smoothly. By doing so, you’ll be able to set your mind at ease whether you’re throwing a party or have guests staying with you.

Garbage Disposal Backup

The holidays always mean much time is spent in the kitchen. If you have a garbage disposal, that can mean a lot of work is coming up ahead. Give it a check-up to make sure it’s ready to go for when your friends and family start gathering!
