This time of year brings so much excitement – adorable trick-or-treaters, family gathered around Thanksgiving dinners, and the enchantment of the holidays. But with the good comes the bad. The winter weather and extreme temperatures can cause a whole mess of plumbing problems. Atmostemp Service Experts is here with a couple preventative measures to help you minimize your chance of encountering these common winter plumbing problems.
Frozen pipes are a common plumbing problem for Voorhees. This usually occurs when high water pressure from the main water pipe combines with freezing temperatures. To help avoid this plumbing problem, leave a faucet somewhat open to allow water to constantly flow through. If you do discover a frozen pipe, turn off the main water supply to prevent the pipe from bursting. Try thawing the frozen area of the pipe with warm water and if that fails, give Atmostemp Service Experts a call and we’ll send one of our qualified plumbers out to inspect the issue.
Broken Water Line
A leak or break in your water line could cause serious damage to your home. Water line leaks or breaks are usually caused by a frozen garden hose. If you forget to disconnect your hose from your water spout following a freeze, the ice inside can cause pressure to build up in your home’s water piping and cause a leak or a break. To avoid this problem, ensure your garden hoses are drained and disconnected prior to freezing temperatures.
Failing Hot Water Systems
If your hot water heater is not operating as well as expected, verify that the temperature is set high enough. If you have a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is still lit. If these aren’t the cause of your hot water issues, call Atmostemp Service Experts so we can send out an expert plumber to find out what’s going on. To avoid this issue altogether, make sure you are having your hot water heater serviced annually and it’s best if you service it well before winter begins. Call 856-310-4824 or schedule online to make sure you don’t get left in the cold this winter.
