Getting your Pipes ready for Winter

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;

  1. 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.
  2. fix any plumbing leaks now. Having your plumbing system running in top shape before winter, will ensure less issues when the cooler weather approaches.
  3. close and drain shut off valves leading outside. Any water left in the lines could freeze and cause major damage.
  4. hire your favorite company (hello!) to help insulate and get your system ready for winter .
