It's getting cold again!

Winter is here again with all of it's ravages, even here, in the south. We must remind our clients to leave faucets dripping at night, when it is the coldest. I talked on this subject last year, but we are back again. Those who have the old copper systems: copper breaks, when frozen and thawed out, hence you have a flooded house. For those fortunate enough to have a pex system, it will not break like copper, but it will still freeze and have no water pressure in some lines until it thawes. Regardless , let your faucets drip overnight. Your problems will be greatly reduced.

   Being in the new construction business , I will receive many calls saying that there is no water in the hall bath . My question is : "Did you leave faucets dripping last night?" The answer is "No". Then that is your problem. Our new homes all have the pex system, so all the homeowner need do is let it thaw during the day and let it drip at night . They will be fine. No breaks, no leaks.

   Thank you, once again for reading! Steve Houck

     Tallahassee will drop into the 30's tonight.  Not enough to turn on the faucets.  But when we hit the 20's, definitely keep the water flowing! 

     BTW, we have PVC pipes, they will split and break faster than anything.  Easy to fix, but who needs the hassle when it can be avoided?
