Sure, it was 105 in Paso Robles today but the hot days of Summer are coming to an end. Autumn is around the corner and then, Winter. Even though we all live on the beautiful Central Coast, it does get cold in the Winter months. Now is a good time to think about what you might need to do in order to protect your plumbing.
The first thing to consider is the insulation of water pipes. It doesn’t happen every year but pipes DO freeze here in the north county. Make sure all of your water pipes are either buried deep enough or insulated to protect them from freezing and the resulting damages. At the best, a frozen pipe means no water. At the worst, it means tens of thousands of dollars in damage to your home after the pipe thaws and the damaged pipe is allowed to leak hundreds of gallons of water through your ceiling, all over your hardwood floors and carpets. Insulation is cheap insurance against a potentially very expensive disaster.
