NorthEast Plumbing & Mechanical is serving Plumbing Lakewood professional services with a

specified pattern this winter, which is affecting weather conditions across the continent. While

December was fairly mild, forecasters have warned that Seattle could be in for some colder

weather in the coming months. Keep reading for tips on how to prevent three common plumbing

issues you might face if things get chilly!

Frozen Pipes

When temperatures drop, exposed pipes, such as in crawl spaces or basements, can lead to

trouble. A common issue is that water partially freezes in the pipe, restricting flow. In severe

cases the pipe can become frozen solid. This can result in cracks as water pressure builds, and if

the pipe breaks, water will start flooding your space. An easy way to prevent this is to insulate

exposed pipes with a foam pipe cover. If Seattle should experience an arctic blast, let cold water

drip from the faucets of any expose pipes — including kitchen and bathroom sinks. The water

circulation will help maintain water pressure and prevent freezing.

Clogged Drains

According to the Plumbers Cleveland Cold weather often results in more kitchen activity as

people cook their favorite hearty dishes in order toward off the chill. This also means there’s

more opportunity for grease and food scrapes to be washed down your kitchen drain and form a

clog. Prevention is a fairly straight forward — simply make sure you compost food scraps and

properly dispose of grease in the garbage. If your drain does clog, avoid reaching for liquid drain

cleaner instead check out our article covering

cleaner. Instead, check out our article covering tried and true methods for getting things

unclogged.

Septic Tank Troubles

If your home uses a septic tank system, you’ll need to keep an eye out for prolonged periods of

below freezing temperatures, especially with no snow. Under these conditions the ground can

start freezing. While it’s unlikely that the tank itself will be threatened (at least in the Seattle

area) depending on how deep the frost extends, parts of your septic system could still be at risk

of freezing. In particular, check the point where the septic line leaves the house and make sure to

cover it with a layer of insulation, such as hay, leaves, or mulch. Regular household activity will

generally provide enough warm water circulation to prevent the line from freezing, but watch out

if you go away for a long weekend or vacation, an important suggestion by Cleveland OH

Plumbers.
