“I’ll give you a prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.” Bill Murray in Groundhog Day
Is your plumbing ready for winter? The best time to think about winterizing your plumbing is while the days are still warm, so that you’re more motivated to go out and do what needs to be done. Bringing in garden hoses, draining lines, and dealing with anything wet in the cold just isn’t very inviting; therefore, you’re less likely to get it done in a timely fashion.
The number one problem on people’s minds when they think of winter plumbing disasters: frozen pipes. Frozen pipes are easily preventable—but if you let your pipes freeze, they’ll crack or even burst—and that will cost you thousands of dollars in damage.
But taking these some steps should help you prevent such a winter tragedy in your own home or office and possibly save you some money on energy bills too. Be watching for our next blog where we will give you the Top Tips for getting a head start on your plumbing winter preparations.
