Aylesbury Plumbing Tips and Tricks For Christmas

With temperatures recently dropping to below zero on many days, we have put together some tips to avoid Aylesbury plumbing issues this Christmas time. Taking a few simple measures can prevent the cost and disruption of damage to your home in the winter months.

1. Clear out your gutters and drain pipes.

Drains and gutters that become clogged with debris and leaves, can freeze in cold temperatures causing them to break. Gutter guards can be fitted to prevent blockages.

2. Disconnect garden hoses and drain outdoor water supplies.

When temperatures drop, outside water supplies can be the first to freeze. Make use of internal shut off valves, and disconnect your garden hose.

3. Insulate your pipes.

Pipes that are situated near to the exterior of your home especially, should be insulated with foam tubes to prevent freezing.

4. Keep your house heated. Keeping your house heated can be expensive, but in the long term is less costly than dealing with the aftermath of property damage from burst pipes.

Leaving cupboard doors under your kitchen and bathroom sinks open, allows warmer air to circulate around the pipes.

Following these simple tips can minimize the risk of damage to your home during the winter. If you would like advice on any plumbing issues call your local Aylesbury plumber on 01296 481461.
