5 Tips to Properly Maintenance Your Plumbing for Fall

1.  Prepare your outdoor hose

If you have any outdoor hoses, you’ll want to disconnect them before the cold weather hits. If there is any water inside these hoses, it will freeze during the fall/winter and cause the pipes inside your home to experience more pressure – sometimes resulting in cracks, bursts, or other damage.

2.  Prepare any outdoor faucets

Once you have your outdoor hoses detached and cleared out, it’s important to inspect the faucets for leaks or damage. Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing if you notice any leaks – fall is the perfect time to repair them. A leaking faucet can lead to water damage during the colder months since you won’t be outside as much, so make sure all your faucets are fixed and properly insulated.

3.  Shut-off valves

If the valve to your outdoor faucet is outside, you’ll want to turn it off during the colder months or your pipes can freeze as the temperatures get lower and lower. Before shutting it off for the season, let it run so there is no water left inside. Once cleared, shut the valve off.

4.  Insulate your piping

If you have pipes in your home that aren’t insulated and are in areas that aren’t heated, you’ll want to ensure you properly insulate them so they don’t freeze during the fall and winter.

5.  Prep your sump pump & water heater

If you have a sump pump that experiences extreme hot or cold, you’ll want to make sure it’s properly cleaned and insulated. When it comes to your water heater, it’s going to be working a lot harder than it did in summer. Make sure to have your tank inspected, cleaned, and flushed if needed.
