As it gets colder and the leaves change, it’s important to consider the plumbing services you’ll require for fall and winter. At Bay Water Plumbing, we understand the unique challenges that cold weather can bring to your plumbing system. Our team of experts is here to assist you in staying warm and maintaining your home during cold weather with top-notch plumbing services in the Bay Area.
One of the most common issues during the colder months is frozen pipes. When water freezes, it expands and can cause pipes to burst, leading to costly repairs.
To prevent this, it’s important to insulate your pipes properly. This can be done with foam pipe insulation or by wrapping them in heat tape. It’s also a good idea to insulate pipes in unheated parts of your home, like the basement or attic.
Fall is the perfect time to have your drains professionally cleaned. As the leaves start to fall, they can easily clog up your gutters and downspouts, causing water to back up and potentially damage your home. Additionally, with the holiday season approaching, you may have more guests in your home, which means more use of your plumbing system. Having your drains cleaned can prevent any clogs or backups and keep your plumbing running smoothly.
Water Heater Maintenance
During the colder months, your water heater works overtime to keep up with the demand for hot water. This can put a strain on the system and lead to potential issues. You should service and maintain your water heater before winter to prevent any unexpected breakdowns. This can include flushing the tank to remove any sediment buildup and checking for any potential leaks or malfunctions.
Unfortunately, plumbing emergencies can happen at any time, and they often seem to occur during the most inconvenient times, like during a holiday party or in the middle of the night. That’s why having a reliable plumbing service on call for any unexpected emergencies is important. Bay Water Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency service in the Bay Area for any plumbing issue you may have.
If you have a vacation home or plan on leaving your home for an extended period of time during the fall or winter, it’s important to properly winterize your plumbing system. To avoid freezing, do the following steps: turn off your water supply, insulate pipes, and set your thermostat to a low temperature. This will not only protect your plumbing system but also save you from potential water damage and costly repairs.
