Fall Plumbing Tips To Prepare For the Cold Months Ahead
With freezing temperatures just around the corner, there are a few fall plumbing maintenance tasks to perform to prevent damage to you home’s plumbing system.
Cold weather puts extra demands on your water heater. To help it work as efficiently as possible and prolong its life, flush the water heater to remove sediment build up. Check your owner’s manual for the steps to maintain your water heater.
If you plan on being away from home for an extended time, shut off the main water valve and open all faucets to drain water from the pipes. Make sure the heat is set to at least 55 degrees.
On the outside of the house check hose bibs for leaks and have them fixed before winter arrives. Also, remember to remove and store hoses to prevent damage to outdoor faucets.
