Most Common Winter Plumbing Issues & How to Avoid Them

When colder winter weather arrives, it can cause varying problems to your home’s plumbing system. Many of these problems, however, can be easily avoided if you take the time to winterize your home correctly.

Unfortunately, some people mistakenly assume it will be a mild winter and later have to deal with a host of winter-related plumbing problems because they did not plan ahead. Even if you think it may be mild this winter, you are better off winterizing your home’s plumbing system. This way, you will not have to worry once temperatures dip below freezing.

Frozen plumbing lines are one of the most common winter plumbing problems because they are not properly insulated. For example, exposed plumbing lines in exterior walls, crawl spaces, or basements are vulnerable to freezing.

Your sewer lines to your septic system can also be vulnerable if they are not buried deep enough in the ground. Even your outdoor water spigots and bibb lines are susceptible to freezing. The best solution is to ensure your water pipes are insulated and winterized correctly.

Another common plumbing problem in winter is clogged drain lines. During the holiday season, drain lines and toilets are likely to clog with all the extra cooking and more guests in and out of your home. One solution is never to put anything down sink drains or flush anything in the toilet that you should not.
