Winter Plumbing Tips

Every winter millions of plumbing pipes freeze and bust due to improper installation or even not having the required protection. Pipes that are exposed to on the outside of your home need to be insulated with pipe insulation and then sealed along all the seams with tape to prevent wind from blowing in and damage due to exposure. There are a few options available so it is always a great idea to call the plumbing professionals at Water Source Plumbing Service. We can schedule an inspection on your home’s plumbing system which includes these pipes.

One of the most common things people do is leave there outside garden hose attached to the outdoor hose bib. When winter arrives the garden hose freezes. Guess what else freezes? The spigot. There are ways to make sure you don’t have this problem. The first way is simple. Remove your garden hose before it starts to freeze. The second thing you should do if you do not have isolation valves installed already is to have a licensed plumber install isolation valves in the basement or crawl space. Find out more about isolation valves in our next blog.
