You've have had an enjoyable summer at your home. Whether your hobbies included gardening, swimming in your back yard pool, or just enjoying your time at home, you are now faced with the upcoming fall months. If you are in southeast Wisconsin, you know how serious prepping your home for winter is during the remaining nice fall weather. No one wants to be surprised by plumbing problems that could have very easily be taken care of before the fall months. There are a few things homeowners can do to prepare their plumbing for fall.
Have your hot water heater inspected. By hiring a trusted plumbing professional, you will have peace of mind that your hot water heater is working properly. During the fall and winter months in southeast Wisconsin, hot water heaters are frequently used.
Making sure that your hot water heater is working properly and ready for the upcoming cold months is something that should not be put off until the last minute. If your hot water heater needs to be replaced, this is something you can discuss with your plumber after he or she is finished with the inspection.
Make sure all outside faucets are turned off. Have you noticed a miniscule dripping leak and let it go? This is the time of year to make sure all of your outside faucets are securely shut off and that no water is leaking from them.
If you notice any problems, contact your plumber so they can make necessary repairs prior to freezing temperatures that could cause pipe problems. The fall months are a wonderful time to have pipes insulated as well.
