Winter may not be as harsh here as it is in Chicago, but don’t tell that to your plumbing. It needs your full attention as winter approaches. If you ignore the changing season you could be looking at severe plumbing problems and huge expenses. If you observe the proper winterizing tips you can rest easily throughout the next 6 months.
Here are some preventative maintenance reminders –
1. Make sure that your pipes are insulated. Freezing pipes can result in water everywhere.
2. Check around the foundation of your home. Water may leak into your basement.
3. If you have a well as a water source then have your pump house checked.
4. Don’t let your water heater give out in mid-winter.
