Protect Pipes During Cold Weather

When water inside your pipes freezes, it expands. This creates outward pressure on the inside of the pipes, and it could lead to a rupture. You can minimize the risk of pipes freezing by following a few helpful tips.

First, wrap exterior pipes with foam, cloth or other insulating materials when a freeze is expected. Inside the building, allow faucets to drip slowly to keep water moving inside the pipes. In addition to these steps, you can leave the cabinet doors open to the spaces underneath your faucets. This allows the heated air from your HVAC or furnace to more easily reach the exposed pipes.

Get a Plumbing Inspection Annually

Another step that you can take to prevent plumbing leaks from developing is to schedule an annual plumbing inspection on your pipes. Pipes will show signs of wear and tear before they rupture or leak in some cases, and a plumber can let you know which pipes may need to be repaired as a preventative measure to minimize the risk of a ruptured pipe.

Plumbing leaks can be a pain to deal with, and in many cases, they can be costly and damaging to the property. As a property owner, you can take steps to reduce the chance of developing a leak. These tips can minimize the risk of a plumbing leak inside your home or business.
