This time of year brings so much joy – adorable trick-or-treaters, friends gathered around Thanksgiving meals, and the magic of the holidays. But with the good comes the bad. The cold weather and bitter temperatures can cause a whole world of plumbing problems. Falso Service Experts is here with a couple preventative measures to help you minimize your chance of encountering these common winter plumbing problems.
Frozen pipes are a common plumbing problem for East Syracuse. This usually occurs when high water pressure from the main water pipe combines with freezing temperatures. To help avoid this plumbing problem, leave a faucet a little open to allow water to constantly 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 heated water and if that doesn’t work, give Falso 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 commonly a result of a frozen garden hose. If you leave your hose connected to your water spout following a freeze, the ice inside can create a pressure build up in your home’s water pipes and cause a leak or a break. To prevent this issue, make sure 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 Falso Service Experts so we can send out an expert plumber to figure out what’s going on. To prevent this issue altogether, make sure you are having your hot water heater serviced annually and it’s ideal if you service it well before winter begins. Call 315-313-6531 or schedule online to make sure you don’t get left with cold water this winter.
