Several Tips to Avoid a Costly Winter Plumbing Leak.

The change of seasons may adversely affect the plumbing in your home.  While the Charlotte area does not suffer the same bitter cold as our northern neighbors it is still inclement enough to warrant your attention to detail.  Here are some things to know before temperatures hover around the freezing mark at night.

Protect your pipes from freezing…You may reduce this possibility by blanketing your uninsulated pipes in a blanket of foam.

Fix those leaks BEFORE the weather changes.

Drain your hot water heater…rust can find its way into your drinking, cooking, and bathing water.

Disconnect and wrap up your outdoor hose.

Have your sump pump inspected and cleaned up if necessary.
