Fall Outdoor Plumbing Maintenance

Posted on: October 20, 2015

The leaves are changing colors, it’s almost Halloween and temperatures are dropping quickly. What does that mean? It’s time to get outside and prepare your outdoor plumbing fixtures for fall. Set a reminder on your phone or post a note to the refrigerator because neglecting these maintenance steps can leave you in a world of trouble come winter.

Have an outdoor hose that you used to water your garden or wash your car during the summer? It’s vital to disconnect it from the water source and turn off outdoor water supplies for the season. Leaving them on can cause hoses to crack and pipes to freeze.

Now that it’s time to cook meals indoors, be sure to turn off all outdoor faucets that you may have used while barbecuing. Check to make sure they aren’t dripping or leaking and if you notice anything suspicious, contact a plumber right away.

When was the last time you cleaned out your gutters? Use this as a reminder because clogged gutters and freezing water is a recipe for disaster. Keep in mind that you should also keep leaves clear of electrical devices and outdoor lighting. Dry leaves and electricity can start a fire.

Need assistance getting your home ready to take on cooler temperatures? The expert technicians at ABC are happy to help. Just give us a call to schedule an appointment and we’ll take care of the rest! Make winter warmer, because it’s as easy as ABC.
