It’s that time of the year again – Jack Frost is moving into Jacksonville, Florida, but is your home ready? Prepare your plumbing for the cold weather before a frozen pipe or plumbing emergency ruins your holidays.
Winter weather requires a different kind of plumbing maintenance. It’s important to create a plumbing checklist to make sure nothing is missed.
To help you create the optimal plumbing checklist for your home, we’ve put together a few checkpoints of our own to assist you:
Prevent Plumbing Freezes
- Find your water main in case you need to shut it off during an emergency
- Drain all garden hoses
- Insulate exposed pipes
- Drain all AC pipes
- If you leave your home for vacation, set the heat to 55 degrees.
Lastly, call the professionals at Metro-Rooter for a complete winter plumbing inspection. We’ll provide a thorough inspection, provide any suggestions and recommendations we may find, and fix any minor plumbing problems before they become large ones.
