Winter is Here
Winterizing Plumbing: Key Steps
To ensure your plumbing withstands the winter chill, take these steps. Start by insulating exposed pipes with foam sleeves to prevent freezing. Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses, storing them indoors. Seal any gaps or cracks in your home’s exterior to keep cold air out. Consider installing heat tape on vulnerable pipes for added protection. Inside, let faucets drip during frigid nights to keep water flowing. Inspect your water heater and flush it to remove sediment. Lastly, familiarize yourself with the location of the main water shut-off valve in case of emergencies. These measures will help you sail through winter without plumbing predicaments.
