Fall Plumbing Tips
Prepare for the occasional freeze and the harder freezes of winter.
Check that outside hoses are drained and disconnected.
Be sure that even frost-free hose bibs are disconnected and shut off. The valve is deep within the house, so they are only frost-free when they are empty.
Irrigation systems in cold climates must be drained and made free of water.
Clean gutters after the leaves have fallen.
Questions of insurance, insulation, shutting off the water and when to call the plumber are all addressed in this article on burst pipes.
Dampness is one of the most common problems (if not THE most common) that comes as a side effect of broken plumbing. Mold can often follow dampness, therefore it's important not to ignore the issue.
