As locals settle in for the cold and vacation homes go empty, your plumbing system must be prepared for the drop in temperature.
Winterizing your plumbing system includes:
- Shut off the main water valve
- Insulate crawl spaces
- Seal all visible cracks outside
- Drain your hot water tank
- Insulate pipes & hose bibs
- Open all drain valves & taps
- Blow excess water out of the pipes
Removing water from your plumbing is the best way to prevent your pipes from bursting during the cold seasons. Shutting off the main water valve and opening all drain valves prevents water from entering your system and removes most of the water from your pipes. This reduces the amount of water left in your pipes that can expand.
The second winterizing technique is to insulate areas that are vulnerable to freezing. By sealing visible cracks around the exterior of your home, heat will stay longer in your house and keep pipes warm. Insulating lines, hose bibs, and crawl spaces also increase the temperature, so water doesn’t freeze. Water can expand by up to nine percent when it freezes; this can burst your pipe and cause unnoticed water damage while your vacation home is empty.
De-winterizing includes reversing any winterizing steps taken in the Fall. Water lines will be reconnected, and appliances will be turned back on. The first step to preparing your home for the Summer is to turn on any circuit breakers that were turned off for various appliances. We can reconnect any disconnected flexible tubes and turn on the shutoff valves. Water heaters, softener systems, and other appliances should be inspected for wear and tear.
Finally, you can turn on the main water supply and open a faucet, so trapped air can escape your pipes and water can refill. Individual valves for water heaters, boilers, and water softeners should be opened. Exterior hose bibs should be tested for low water pressure and leaks, as this is a common issue after de-winterizing.
