4 Fast Plumbing Tips For The Winter

post2We at Daly City Plumbing understand the importance of a solid and efficient plumbing system at your home. Changing weather can have a lot of impact over the life of the plumbing in your homes. Below we share some tips to help you with maintenance of your plumbing in the winter.

1) Fat and grease is the major cause of clogged drains. The grease and fat can get stuck in the drain leading to clogged drains. In the winters this grease and fat can solidify and cause significant problems for your plumbing system, therefore avoid draining grease and fat into the drains.

2) Avoid draining vegetable peel and hard seeds of different vegetables in the sinks. These kinds of things are not properly grinded by the disposer and can get stuck in the drains leading to clogged drains.

3) Be wary of the frozen pipes. The pipes located at higher locations such as attics can are highly vulnerable to cold temperatures. These frozen pipes should be immediately taken care of by a professional plumber to avoid significant damage. To avoid the frozen pipe issue try to install the pipes in a properly insulated places or bury the pipes underground so they are not exposed to the harsh temperatures.

4) Water heaters are used a lot in winter season. Therefore carry out a detailed maintenance check before the winter by a professional plumber to ensure that you do not experience any problem in the middle of the winter leading to a lot of inconvenience.
