Top Plumbing Issues That Happen During the Fall
- Cracked Pipes or Foundations from Temperature Changes
Few things are harder on fixed pieces of construction than rapid shifts between hot and cold temperatures. Those shifts cause pipes, fixtures, foundations, and more to suddenly expand and contract, over and over. This can easily cause cracking or worse, and with very little warning. It’s a very rough time of year for pipes, and there’s no telling when a problem might come up.
Much like in the spring, autumn here can be marked by sudden unexpected rains which can easily overwhelm a home – especially if the foundations or sealants have been cracked by temperature shifts. No one wants to wake up and discover their basement is flooded, but if it is, it’s a situation that requires immediate attention.
- Clogged Exterior Drains and Other Fixtures
Fall, of course, is also associated with plenty of foliage falling from trees, and that can easily clog up important parts of your plumbing such as drain outlets or the external vents for your hot water heater. Clogs can easily create backups within the house, and often without an obvious cause. We can help you track down those clogs, and ensure all the exterior pipes in your house are flowing smoothly.
- Frost Damage
Along with rapidly-changing temperatures, the other major danger to your outdoor plumbing is when the nights start to turn icy. Many pipes have inadequate insulation, and will tend to crack if they’re frozen repeatedly. It’s vital to ‘winterize’ your pipes early on, to protect them from damage.
