This time of year brings so much fun – cute trick-or-treaters, family gathered around Thanksgiving dinners, and the enchantment of the holidays. But with the good comes the bad. The cool weather and bitter temperatures can cause a whole world of plumbing problems. Wesley Wood Service Experts is here with a few preventative measures to help you minimize your chance of encountering these common winter plumbing problems.
Frozen pipes are a common plumbing problem for West Chester. This commonly occurs when high water pressure from the main water pipe combines with freezing temperatures. To help avoid this plumbing problem, leave a faucet slightly open to allow water to continuously flow through. If you do find a frozen pipe, turn off the main water supply to prevent the pipe from bursting. Try defrosting the frozen area of the pipe with hot water and if that fails, give Wesley Wood Service Experts a call and we’ll send one of our professional plumbers out to look at the issue.
Broken Water Line
A leak or break in your water line could cause serious damage to your home. Water line leaks or breaks are typically because of a frozen garden hose. If you forget to disconnect your hose from your water spout following a freeze, the ice inside can cause pressure to build up in your home’s water piping and cause a leak or a break. To prevent this situation, ensure your garden hoses are drained and disconnected prior to freezing temperatures.
Failing Hot Water Systems
If your hot water heater is not functioning as well as expected, check the temperature and make sure it is set high enough. If you have a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is still lit. If these aren’t the cause of your hot water issues, call Wesley Wood Service Experts so we can send out an expert plumber to find out what’s going on. To prevent this issue altogether, ensure you are having your hot water heater serviced annually and it’s better if you service it well before winter begins. Call 484-401-7577 or schedule online to ensure you don’t get left in the cold this winter.
