Tips to Get Your Home’s Plumbing System Ready for Fall

Posted on: September 8, 2016

As we work our way through August, the fall months are just right around the corner. In a few short weeks you’ll be raking leaves and doing yard maintenance, but is your home ready? Even though it’s still summer, preparing your plumbing for the cold months now will help you avoid problems when the winter chill hits. Here are some tips from ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric to ensure your plumbing systems are in tip top shape:

  • Before freezing weather arrives, disconnect outside hoses and repair any outside faucet leaks
  • Have your tank water heater flushed to remove any sediment buildup
  • Have your sprinkler system blown out and turned off
  • If the house has an interior shut-off for outside lines, close them and drain the water outside lines
  • To prevent frozen pipes, seal cracks in the foundation and exterior walls and insulate pipes in crawl spaces
  • Check washing machine hoses for damage. Replace hoses if cracked, bulging or showing other signs of wear
  • Check that your sump pump is working properly
