Who likes to do work during the cold temperatures of winter? Repair and replace broken or outdated plumbing fixtures before winter comes around so that you can rest comfortably during the very wonderful time of the year. Inspect outdoor faucets and hoses as well, making sure they are free of debris. Check the washers also as faulty washers can leak gallons of water, inflating your water bill and possibly creating slip hazards in the form of ice on your property.
Though there are certainly health benefits to cold showers, there is nothing like a warm or hot shower in the winter. Keep your water heater in great shape by turning up the thermostat on your water heater because Phoenix has a shallow frost line. Also ease some of the stress on your water heater by flushing the water heater to remove built up sediments and maximize storage space in your tank style water heater.
Have your sewer lines inspected before the harsh cold of the winter arrives. Invasive tree roots can penetrate pipes and drains in an effort to locate water. Tree roots can clog your pipes and cause water or sewage backups. It is going to be better for you to handle this work sooner rather than later.
If you are going to be home during the winter, then you are going to be dependent on the faucet water. To avoid having to drink cloudy water or that with sediment in the bottom of the glass, then have your water treated. A water softener can eliminate the excess minerals in the water supply, improving the appearance and taste of your water.
Locate Your Water Valve
It is crucial to have an emergency plan set out in case of, well, an emergency. If you end up with a frozen pipe that bursts, you are going to want to be able to shut off the water supply. Locate your water valve, typically found at the front of your home near where you connect your hose.
