Tips to Avoid that Costly Winter Leak

Tips to Avoid that Costly Winter Leak

Posted on December 19, 2016 by oozle

Winter can bring a series of home burdens but one of the more costly is a leak. Leaks can sometimes be prevented if the right steps are taken. We have compiled a list of 5 ways to avoid a costly leak this winter season.

Tip 1: Protect Your Pipes from Freezing

At all costs avoid frozen pipes! Keep an eye on water pressure during the winter months, this is the first sign you have a frozen pipe. If you notice restricted water flow or a significant change in water pressure contact a professional plumber immediately!

Tip 2: Fix Any Potential Leaks Now

The best way to avoid leaks is by preventing them or catching them early on! Check all interior and exterior faucets for drips or puddles. If you find a leaky faucet contact ProServ immediately before it becomes a bigger problem.

Tip 3: Drain & Clean Your Water Heater

Living in Las Vegas or anywhere with hard water means sediment is building in your water heater tank, this needs to be cleaned out! The sediment buildup can cause rust to form in your water heater which then flows into your homes drinking, cooking, and bathing water. Water heater already rusted, old, or stopped working? Contact a plumber to have a new one installed to keep your warm all winter.

Tip 4:Remove & Store Your Outdoor Hose

You don’t need to water your plants or grass this winter, disconnect your garden hoses and drain any pipes of water to prevent any possible damage. By leaving a garden hose connected to your home, you’re risking ice and pressure build-up in the water lines inside of your home. If buildup occurs a water line could potentially leak or break causing expensive and serious damage to your home.

Tip 5: Close Any Interior Shutoff Valves Leading to Exterior Faucets

Locate the shut-off valves in your home to drain all the water from the pipes that lead to the hose bibs outside. These are commonly found near your water heater, meter, basements, crawlspaces, or under sinks. Depending on your home you may or may not be able to access these valves, for assistance call a professional plumber.

If you do find yourself with a leak, call a plumbing professional right away! The longer you wait the more you risk further damage to your home. For emergency repairs contact ProServ Las Vegas at 702-425-5512!
