Your Sewer Line is NOT Hibernating.

Here are some preventative measures to take –

1.  Keep your home’s interior warm
2.  Remove garden hoses
3.  Check water drains more frequently
4.  Drain the water system if you are leaving your home unattended for the winter

Changing Seasons…Changing Plumbing Needs.

This is not Denver, but don’t tell that to your plumbing.  It requires your full attention as winter approaches.  If you ignore potential plumbing problems during this changing season you could be looking at huge plumbing expenses.  If you observe the proper winterizing tips you can rest easily throughout the next 6 months.

Here are some Autumn plumbing maintenance tips –

1.  Insulate your pipes.  Freezing pipes will result in water everywhere.
2.  Look at the foundation of your home.  Water could leak into your basement.
3.  If you have a well, have your pump house checked.
4.  Don’t let your water heater give out in the middle winter.

Of course, that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.  One way to make sure the job is done completely the first time is to call Shawn Allen.  Residents around Snohomish, WA have counted on this master plumber to do ALL of their plumbing winterizing and repairs for well over 30 years.  It starts with a phone call to (425) 367-4744 to have Shawn do your plumbing inspection for winter.
