As the weather continues to get colder, it is important to remember to have the home’s plumbing systems inspected to help prevent frozen pipes. Pipes with reduced water-flow could have the potential to burst and cause extensive damage to your home. There are a few tips to follow to help keep the water flowing safely during the cold weather.
Keeping your home warm and using the plumbing system regularly is a good start to preventing frozen pipes. You should also remember to turn off the water to any outdoor hose connections and do your best to drain excess liquid that remains before the winter weather hits. If you have a garage, keep it closed to avoid water supply lines inside from freezing over. Even after taking these precautionary steps, you could still find that frozen pipes pose a threat. Schedule a plumbing inspection to ensure that your water system is ready for another cold, Canadian winter.
