Put Away Outdoor Hoses

Locate all outdoor hoses in your yard. Turn them on to drain any water remaining. Once they are dry, turn them off and unplug them from the spigots. It’s now time to store them for the season. You don’t need to water your lawn as often in the fall. You can reset the sprinklers to prevent them from turning on and off without you having to do so. Colder weather can cause hose casings to crack, which you don’t want! They can burst, just like pipes.

Faucets can be Insulated

After you’ve taken care of those, it’s now time to think about the faucets. Make sure to properly insulate them. This can be made easier by purchasing store-bought kits. This will help reduce the likelihood of water damage to your home’s plumbing in fall and winter.

Drain the water heater

The cooling season is coming to an end, but heating season is upon us. This means that you need to pay attention to your heater. It is important to drain the heater, especially if there is any water left behind. You will see a decrease in water heater consumption and a better ability to heat water for cold days.

Examine the Pressure Valves

Pay attention to pressure valves. To ensure you don’t get caught unawares if anything happens, such as a tank burst or leaking, you will need to pay attention to the water heaters. You should be careful when you push the lever. If something isn’t right, it is time for you to call a plumber who you trust will do the best job to ensure that your family and home are safe from any plumbing disasters.
