Fall Plumbing Tips

Fall is here! Have you ever wondered how the seasons impact your plumbing system? Probably not. Below are some fall plumbing tips to keep in mind this season. 

  • During the fall, the leaves will fall. They can land in the most inopportune areas, such as your gutters and downspouts. Be sure to remove all debris so your gutters and downspouts can drain properly.
  • Do you have exposed pipes in your home? If so, it is a good idea to have them insulated. It can help you prevent your pipes from freezing.
  • You should drain your hot water heater at least once a year. Doing so will help you avoid sediment buildup. That way, you will always have access to warm water.
