Helpful Tips to Prevent Pipes From Bursting This Winter
- Wrap outside faucets
- Caulk around pipes where they enter the house.
- Disconnect garden hoses.
- Drain in-ground sprinkler systems.
- Let a stream of water run if the temperature dips below freezing.
- Open cupboard doors in the kitchen and bathrooms.
- Shut off and drain your water system if you are leaving home for several days.
Another common cause of water damage is a burst pipe. When pipes deteriorate or freeze, they are susceptible to bursting. For this reason, it's important to have your pipes regularly inspected. Also, be sure that you check the areas that could start corroding. One of the factors that contribute to bursting pipes is high pressure. To reduce pressure, have a valve installed or simply replace the plumbing.
