Winterizing

Winterizing you Plumbing Systems

It’s that time of year again to think about winterizing some of your plumbing systems. The most important thing you can do is disconnect all hoses from outside spigots. If this isn’t done water can freeze inside the hose and spigot and split the pipe inside the house. Also if the spigot is dripping at all it should be fixed before it freezes and breaks the spigot.

Another tip this time of year is make sure any sump pump discharge lines that go outside are pitched so that all the water will flow out of the pipe. If the line freezes, you could flood your basement.

For your information, our Plumbing System Checkup Special has been extended throughout February 2014.
