How to Prepare Your Plumbing for the Winter

Tulsa Plumber Winter Plumbing Tips

And just like that, temps are going from “Hooray for jeans and hoodies” to “Where’d I put those dang earmuffs?” If you’re like most homeowners, you’ve likely tested your furnace a time or two. But have you shown your plumbing system any TLC yet? As your Tulsa plumbing experts, we recommend doing some quick DIY preventive maintenance to avoid a Midwinter Night’s Nightmare (with our apologies to William Shakespeare).

A few weeks ago, we offered a basic fall plumbing maintenance checklist.

To recap:

  1. Clean out your drains and gutters.
  2. Inspect your water heater and water heater pressure relief valve.
  3. Check for leaks and drips.
  4. Insulate exposed pipes.
  5. Store your garden hoses.
  6. Turn off your outdoor faucets.
  7. Use your water shut off valve if you’ll be traveling.

If you’re nice and cozy in your favorite recliner right now and you aren’t terribly enthused at the thought of heading to the basement or the backyard, we get it. But here’s the thing: Water damage related to burst pipes is the second most-filed insurance claim in the country—at an average of $10,000 per claim. And, by the way, most insurance companies are picky about what they will—and won’t—cover in these situations. So you’re right: Draining and storing your garden hoses is no fun. But neither is a flooded basement on Christmas Eve.

After you’ve checked those seven basic maintenance tasks off your list, here are some other winter plumbing tips to follow:
