Prepare For Winter

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes can be awful in the winter and are one of the main reasons that our customers need to call out an emergency plumber. Frozen water puts strain on pipes, causing them to split and break, resulting in a leak that can cause a vast amount of damage to the electrics and the basic structure of your property.

One of the first signs that your pipes are freezing will be restricted water flow, indicating a drop in water pressure. It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for any changes in the water flow during colder months. You can prevent frozen pipes by ensuring that all drafts in the home are minimised. Another good idea is to have some sort of insulation, such as using electrical heating tape to protect the pipes.

Radiators

If your radiators aren’t working as they should or there is uneven heat distribution, then you’ll probably need to try bleeding it. Bleeding a radiator removes any pockets of air that may become trapped in the piping and allows the hot water to circulate better through the system.

Drains

Putting cooking oil and fat down the drain is always potentially damaging to your pipes. Grease and oil stick to the pipes and tend to build up and clog, collecting pieces of food debris and waste along the way. Over the winter months, when we are cooking large meals for friends and family, this problem is particularly severe. Try to minimise the amount of food waste that goes down the sink in order to keep the plumbing healthy.
