Tips to Avoid a Costly Winter Plumbing Leak

Are you a homeowner who wants to avoid costly plumbing expense this season? If so, then you might want to think about how you can take a few preventative measures.  At Barner Murphy, we work hard to ensure that all of the customers receive the best heating and plumbing services in the area.  We’ve also got a few tips that will help you avoid an expensive winter plumbing leak.

1. Protect your pipes.
One of the best ways to prevent an expensive winter plumbing leak is by ensuring that your pipes don’t freeze when the temperatures dip.  If your pipes burst, you’ll have a costly repair on your hands that could have likely been avoided.  At Barner Murphy, we recommend that you wrap your pipes in insulated foam to prevent them from bursting when the weather gets cold.  Burst pipes can result in damaged belongings and flooding, so it’s important to ensure that you prevent this from occurring.

2. Repair current leaks.
The best time to fix any current plumbing issues is as soon as you notice them.  By waiting to fix simple repairs, you run the risk of them snowballing into more complicated and expensive repairs down the road.  At Barner Murphy, we recommend that you check all of the faucets in your kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.  If you notice drips or puddles, call in the experts to determine the source of the issue. 

3. Try draining your water heater.
Sometimes, especially in homes that have hard water, sediment can accumulate in the water tank.  This means that rust can develop and consequently make its way into your water supply.  At Barner Murphy, we suggest having your water heater checked for rust or for damage.  You might also want to consider purchasing a new one if yours is not updated.  In the event of a plumbing problem, you can always call on the trusted team at Barner Murphy.  We work hard to ensure that all of our customers receive the highest quality heating and plumbing services in the entire Levittown area and beyond.
