As summer season sets upon us and the colder temps take over, I wanted to share with you some useful tips on how to maintain your pipes and plumbing, including your septic tank.
Winterizing While AwayIf you are a snowbird, like my mom, make sure that you are properly winterizing your plumbing system while you are away for long periods of time. Also, be sure to winterize your home. Here are things to help you winterize and prepare for colder temperatures.
- Close all foundation vents & crawlspace doors to prevent cold wind from entering this area
- If you have one, leave the crawlspace light on. This will add heat to the crawlspace
- If you have a sink against an outside wall, open the cabinet doors below the sink. This will allow your home’s heating system to warm the pipes. This would include your kitchen and bathrooms.
- For extra assurance, allow the hot water side of the sink faucet in the room furthest away from your water heater, to drip
- Turn off the water supply to all outside faucets & unscrew hoses from the spigot(s)
Routinely Treat Pipes and DrainsTaking care of your home is just as important as regular maintenance of your care, or even take care of your body. Thinks break or fail, but with routine treatment of your pipes and drains, you reduce the risk of failure and a cost bill for repairs that insurance may not cover. Treating your pipes and drains can significantly help avoid problems in the long run.

Thank you for sharing. I have never tried roto rooter. I will have to check it out next time we go to the hardware store.
I guess I take my pipes for granted. I just never think about them until they don’t work!

A few years ago, our pipes burst. It sounded like a waterfall inside the wall. My husband put a heat tape on the pipes in the crawlspace. Now when we have a prolonged cold spell, we flip a switch and run it.
