7 Plumbing Maintenance Tips to Make Winter Woes Disappear

Seasonal Plumbing Maintenance Tips For Your Home

With winter’s arrival, it’s time to cozy up to some seasonal home TLC. Being a step ahead in your winter prep dance can save you from a frosty fiasco. Here’s a lineup of 7 plumbing maintenance must-dos that will turn your home into a snug haven during the chilly months.

 

  1. Outdoor Water Hoses:

Bid farewell to your outdoor water hoses before they throw a chilly tantrum. Disconnect, drain, and tuck them in a dry hideout—they’re allergic to the cold, you see.

 

  1. Outdoor Faucets:

Show your outdoor faucets some TLC; they’ve been dripping with anticipation. Patch up leaks before they stage a frozen water ballet. Then, wrap them up in a cozy styrofoam sweater—they’ll thank you with uninterrupted flow.

 

  1. Interior Shut-Off Valve:

Indoor faucet meets outdoor valve in a frosty tango. Give your interior valve a spin and let the outdoor faucet’s tap dance clear out any lingering water, leaving only good vibes.

 

  1. Pipe Insulation:

It’s not just your toes that need snug socks this season—pipes deserve some warmth too! Blanket pipes in crawl spaces and garages with insulation, creating a piping hot fashion statement.

 

  1. Seal Gaps:

Gaps and pipes: the dynamic duo that’s got winter breezes auditioning for their sitcom. Put a stop to their chilly comedy show with weather stripping, caulking, and insulation—no more sneaky drafts allowed.

  1. Sump Pump Care:

Your sump pump may love a good cold brew, but extreme temperatures are not its jam. Give it the VIP treatment—insulate and declutter so it can dance its pumping jig with ease.

 

  1. Water Heater Maintenance:

Your water heater’s got sediment buildup—a winter blanket it didn’t ask for. Time for a spa day—flush that buildup and let your water heater bask in the spotlight.
