Here are some Winter Plumbing Tips to do in the Fall for Inside your Home:

As the weather begins to cool off, now is the time to establish some good plumbing habits to protect your home.  A few simple plumbing preparations now will prevent headaches and costly repairs throughout the winter months.

Know where your main water valve is and how to shut it off:

    • If a pipe bursts, knowing how to shut off the water could save you thousands of dollars.  Teach your kids how to shut off the water main and under toilets and sinks.  Everyone that is old enough to be in the house alone should know how to turn off the water in case you aren’t home when a leak occurs.

Complete yearly maintenance on your water heater:

    • Your water heater works harder in colder months.  Make sure to flush out any sediment that has accumulated in your water heater, as this can cause corrosion and reduces heating efficiency.   Drain and flushes can extend its lifespan and increase efficiency to save you money.

Insulate your pipes so that they are less likely to freeze:

    • A frozen pipe means no water flow.  Increased mass of internal ice can cause a leak and create a bigger headache.  Garages, attics and crawl spaces are two example locations.  Insulate pipes you can see, especially ones near outside walls.insulate pipes | frozen pipes | pipe insulation

Inspect and clean sump pump and pit:

    • Pumps exposed to extreme cold can freeze, preventing the pump from operating.  Any prolonged period of rain can also cause your sump pump to work overtime. For sump pump repair in Indianapolis give us a call.
