Preparing Your Plumbing for the Winter Season

With the temperatures starting to cool down, it is important to take precautions with your home or business’ plumbing to avoid major issues during the winter months.

Steps to Winterization:

Prepare Exterior Faucets: Exposed faucets can freeze and cause built up pressure that may burst inside or beneath your home. Ensure hoses are disconnected and valves are shut off correctly.

Freezing Nights: Trickling water will prevent faucets from freezing. This is especially helpful if you live in a mobile home where the cooler winter air circulates beneath the flooring.

Insulate Exterior Pipes: By adding slip-on foam insulation, can prevent the freezing of exterior pipes. An inexpensive solution is pool noodles; be sure air cannot seep in the gaps of the insulation.
