3 Ways To Avoid Plumbing Leaks In Dallas


Dallas Plumbing LeaksThe holiday season is just around the corner here in Dallas. People are preparing their homes for holiday visitors and getting that long list of gift shopping done.

There’s little time to think about other things this time of year. But there are some things that need to be done around the house to prepare for winter. The biggest mistake you can make is forgetting about your plumbing system.

If you have a home in Dallas, think about how inconvenient it would be if a pipe burst or you didn’t have any water in the house. Luckily, there are things you can do now to avoid plumbing leaks during the winter.

First, Insulate Your Plumbing Pipes

Pipes burst in winter because frozen water expands within them. Any exposed plumbing pipes should be wrapped with insulation manufactured for plumbing pipes. It’s important that the insulation is well-sealed because any amount of exposure can cause the pipe to freeze.

  • All exposed pipes should be insulated
  • Wrap outdoor water faucets
  • Wrap sprinkler systems
  • Wrap any plumbing under the house or in the attic

If you like, we can insulate your plumbing pipes for you, just give us a call.

Second, Repair or Replace Pipes & Fixtures That Are Rusting Or Corroded

Plumbing repairs need to be done when there is rust or corrosion. Check all your fixtures, make sure faucets and shut-off valves turn freely, and check plumbing connections.

Sometimes deterioration isn’t easy to see, so look for corrosion around joints and connections carefully. Also, taste your water and look at it in a clear glass. Does it have a metallic, tin smell or taste? Is there any rust floating in it? Is it discolored?

Ask A Dallas Plumber To Service The Water Heater Tank

Your water heater tank could be rusty. When rusted enough, it will burst and water will flood your home. A Dallas plumber should service your water heater once a year if it’s gas and every couple of years or so if it’s electric.

The service by your Dallas Plumber may include flushing out the tank. The sediments within are flushed out so the water heater works better and lasts longer. Any electrical or gas connections need to be checked and tested. Parts may need to be replaced, or you may need a new water heater.

With these preventative measures, you should be able to count on your fresh-water plumbing system all season. We hope you have the best of times with family and friends during the holidays!
