Heil Plumbing Advises Customers to Prepare Faucets and Pipes for Winter Weather

Jessup, MD – Heil Plumbing is reminding customers this month to be mindful of the effects that winter weather can have on plumbing. Winterizing plumbing is a task that can easily be forgotten but is key to maintaining the integrity of home plumbing systems. Heil Plumbing understands what to expect of their community's winter season, as well as issues that commonly arise during this time of the year. To assist their community, Heil Plumbing is advising households to take the necessary steps to protect faucets and pipes during cold weather.

Heil Plumbing advises four basic inspections to do when preparing plumbing for winter. Disconnect all outdoor hoses, splitters, or other fittings to prevent water from becoming trapped in the faucet. Ensuring that all water is drained from the outside pipes will prevent ice from cracking the pipe or causing a blockage. Outdoor faucet covers will also help provide even more protection against freezing temperatures. Lastly, it is advised to perform an inspection of all exposed pipes and faucets to check for leaks and cracks prior to cold weather arriving and during any spells of freezing temperatures. Owner Edward Heil says, “Properly winterizing your outside faucet(s) is the single most important task a homeowner can perform to prevent winter freeze-up and water damage to the inside of their home.”
