Portland winters can be brutal & you want to make sure your pipes are protected from any cold conditions.
Here’s a few of our top tips to help prevent any freezing pipes or breaks;
- wrap any un-insulated pipes in a blanket of foam. You can purchase foam tubes with a slit on the side from most hardware stores. This helps prevent pipe breaks during colder temps.
- fix any plumbing leaks now. Having your plumbing system running in top shape before winter, will ensure less issues when the cooler weather approaches.
- close and drain shut off valves leading outside. Any water left in the lines could freeze and cause major damage.
- hire your favorite company (hello!) to help insulate and get your system ready for winter .
