How do you winterize plumbing in a house for the winter?

0  comments

Freezing temperatures can cause significant damages to your home’s piping and plumbing needs. The temperatures can cause the pipes to become cracked, leading to leaks or larger breakages. It is important to consider the importance of starting the process to winterize plumbing for the winter in your home. Continue reading below to learn more about how to winterize plumbing in your home.

 

Make a Plan

 

It is important to make a plan before beginning the winterizing process. Know what needs to be done ahead of time and make sure to do it. Make a checklist of all parts that need to be inspected including piping, valves and taps. Be sure to scratch off the parts you have inspected to make the process go as streamlined as possible in order to ensure that you have covered everything. Starting this process will greatly assist you in preparing the plumbing in your home for the winter.

 

How to Winterize Plumbing

 

Follow the steps below to learn how to best winterize houses for the winter.

 

Turn off water at the valve, pump and heater to protect all equipment.

Open each tap and valve in your house to avoid unnecessary vacuums, and leave them open.

Blow out leftover water with an air compressor.

Drain water from the hot water tank by the drain valve. Have a hose ready for connection if the valve is not on the floor.

Drain the holding tank and add antifreeze to the jet pump.

Flush all toilets to remove as much extra water as possible, and add antifreeze to the toilets for leftover water.

Add antifreeze to any piping with drain traps such as sinks or bathtubs.

 

Following these steps will help you in preventing further damage to your piping during the winter.

 

Preventing Frozen Pipes

 

It is possible to prevent frozen pipes as well by inspecting piping that is outside, uninsulated or unheated. Look for cracks both in the plumbing and in the walls around your plumbing and fix them. Be sure to provide insulation where required as well to prevent any cold air from entering.

 

Keep a faucet dripping throughout the winter season as well to prevent freezing as the water will be continually moving. Ensure the basement or crawl space is insulated as there are often exposed pipes in these areas. Insulate the hose bibs as well. Finally, use heat tape around pipes, but be sure to heed all warnings.

 

Final Thoughts

 

It is important to winterize plumbing for the winter. Take the necessary steps to ensure that your home’s plumbing system is safe from significant damage that may occur during the winter months. Be prepared and take all precautions necessary.

Our water tank quit on us Saturday night. Contacted Lynn’s the next day for a quote and they scheduled us in first thing Monday morning. Service was quick, efficient and price is very competitive, would highly recommend.

If you need a company for any plumbing needs please make sure to use Lynne‘s HVAC Winnipeg. Scott was out today to clean our sewer line and he was very professional & had everything back working for us again. It seems tree roots were the cause of our troubles. I would rate Scott and the company both five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From the moment I met Josh I knew I could trust this company. He was very patient and explained everything easily. The team came on time. They worked so hard to get my new AC on my old furnace. It was a challenging job but they stayed positive and never discouraged me. I was so confident they will do a great job and they did not disappoint. They cleaned up everything and it looked perfect. I am now enjoying my cool home. Thank you so much and I feel like I found a family. ❤️

After a really bad experience with a competitor I turned to Lynn's. Scott was early, clean and professional. He took of his shoes, prepared the area where we has going to work and made sure my carpet didnt get any more dirty then it was (competitor had soiled it). The jobs was tougher than initially thought, but Scott kept working at it and didn't give up and finally found a solution. I felt the costs was proportionate and I would highly recommend Lynn's Plumbing and Scott in particular. Give others a pass!

Sucks to be without AC when it is 30 degrees out! Luckily Lynn's helped us repair our air conditioner unit within hours of it breaking down.
