Tips to Prevent Leaks:

  • Insulate your cold water pipes. If your water pipes come into contact with an exterior wall, they could freeze and burst in cold temperatures. Wrap them with pipe insulation. Also, keep faucets open a trickle during very cold weather since moving water won’t freeze.
  • Peek under the kitchen sink. Piles of cleaners and supplies can jostle pipes and hoses under your sink, loosening connections and causing leaks. Keeping that space tidy also makes it easier to notice a drip. Check often to make sure you don’t have damaging drips.
  • Scan your basement pipes. Even if you don’t know where they go, you can usually see potential problems with your pipes before a catastrophic leak or break. Look for corrosion, buckling, or water drops. If you see something that doesn’t look right, call an expert for an inspection.
  • Watch out for mildew, mold or bubbling on walls. You expect some mold or mildew to grow in your shower, but if you see them in other areas of your house, it may be a sign of a leak inside your walls.

An early repair is often less costly than extensive repairs after a major leak or pipe burst. If you see trouble signs in your pipes, schedule a service call with A.B. May. We are here to help you.
