What to do to keep your pipes from bursting
Winter can be the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the holidays, bake delicious festive food, and ring in the new year! But unfortunately, winter can also wreak havoc on our homes plumbing if not properly taken care of. Aloha Plumbing, Sewers, & Drains is here for you with some winter plumbing advice!
- Keep an eye on your water heater: Since hot water usage will be higher in the winter than any other season, your water heater will be putting in a lot more work! If you start to notice a change in your water’s temperatures or a decline in water pressure, you may want to consider having it looked at by a professional before further damage is done.
- Beware of clogs: With the holiday season bringing lots of cooking and family activities, your drains could take the hit. To prevent clogs this winter be sure to be aware of what’s going down the drains.
- Act if the pipes freeze: Frozen pipes can become a serious issue in the winter that could have you spending thousands of dollars in plumbing bills. Save your pipes before a frozen pipe turns into a busted one! If you notice your pipes freezing be sure to turn off the main water supply and give your local plumber a call right away to help with your winter plumbing problems.
- Turn off the water when you travel: If you’re heading out of town to celebrate the holidays for an extended period of time we advise you turn off the water supply so you don’t return home to the chance of a winter plumbing disaster.
