Get Your Plumbing System Ready for Winter

Winter will be here before you know it. Are you pipes ready for the plunging temperatures? If not, don’t fret. Below are some tips that will get your plumbing system ready for winter.

Patch Up Any Leaks

Some homeowners think nothing of a small leak. When the mercury drops, a small leak can leave you with a big problem. To prevent this, be sure to have any leaks patched up immediately. 

Insulate Pipes

Frozen pipes pose a big problem for homeowners. Not only will it damage your plumbing system, it can also lead to water damage in your home. As a preventative measure, have any exposed pipes in your home insulated. 

Know Where the Water Main Is

If a plumbing disaster should occur in your home, the first thing you should do is turn off the water main. Some homeowners do not know where the water main is located. It is important to find out where it is. That way, you know what to do in case of an emergency.
