Useful Home Tips: How to Get Your Plumbing System Ready for Winter


If you have lived in the Denver area through at least one cold season, you may be fully aware of the fact that pipes can freeze easily and that this can result in considerable property damage and costly plumbing repair costs when the pipes burst. When the temperature outside plummets below freezing, the water in your pipes can also freeze. When this happens, the water in the pipes can expand, and the pressure on the pipes from the expanding water can cause them to burst. While you cannot prevent all of these types of plumbing issues from happening, you can minimize the likelihood of a winter pipe rupture issue by following a few easy steps.

Wrap Your Exterior Pipes

Plumbers will generally recommend that local homeowners take every step possible to secure their pipes before the first freeze of the year. You cannot easily wrap the pipes that are inside your home’s walls, but there may be exterior pipes that you can access easily.
