Highmark Plumbing is available for your plumbing service in Langley. As the leaves change colors, the days become shorter, and the air cooler, it is easy to see that we are well into autumn and that winter is on its way.
Winter can bring an interesting set of challenges for plumbing. If your home has an outside water tap or spigot, it will need to be winterized to prevent it from freezing. Now is also a good time to make a last check for leaks, clogged drains of all kinds, and similar problems. No one – not even your plumber – loves digging up pipes or shutting off water at the main during cold weather. Insulate pipes that might be vulnerable to cold weather, and plan a heat source that will keep the interior of your home above freezing. If your home requires a plumbing project either because of an expansion or to replace damaged or leaking pipes, you might consider trying the new expanding pipes that are resistant to damage from freezing and thawing. They are easy to install and have the advantage of being more flexible than the old sort of water piping. Their only disadvantage is that they are more vulnerable to accidental punctures, and, therefore, need to be protected from pets and children and should not be subjected to hot grease being poured down the drain. Although, knowledgeable home-makers already are aware that grease should never be poured into a sink drain.
