Cold Weather Plumbing Tips For Orlando Florida

Here we are in November and already the cold weather is on it’s way. Here are some plumbing tips to help your pipes when you experience freezing temps in your Orlando home. Although we don’t get freezing temps in Orlando Florida that often, we do experience freezes every now and then.

The first thing is to check all exposed piping on the outside of your home. Some houses have exposed pipe where it enters your Orlando home. You should insulate the line coming into the house with arma-flex insulation. Also if you have had your house re-piped the lines are ran in the attic and the attic can get below freezing if the lines are not insulated you should open an interior faucet to a real small drip. This acts like a moving river if water moves and it tends not to freeze. Also some houses in Orlando have back flow pre-venters and that should be wrapped with a blanket. These small steps will ensure your plumbing system will make it through the night and you won’t have to call your Orlando plumber to fix a bursted pipe in the middle of the night. People do not realize the damage a frozen pipe will cause. The obvious is if it bursts but sometimes the pipe does not burst and it creates a weak point and eventually the pipe will burst, probably when you are at work. So when the Orlando forecaster says it will be below 30 degrees follow theses tips to save your home from a plumbing disaster!
