Snow And Your Plumbing

Winter months bring winterizing projects that are completed in the fall, but other chores need to be done to prevent other problems all winter long.  Keeping snow cleared from exhaust outlet pipes for water and house heating equipment, along with dryer vents. This will provide good venting and safety.   Also keep your discharge from your sump pump clear.   Make sure that when you shovel snow you address these areas also.   Giving your down spouts and sump pump discharge pipes a clear path for water to get away from your home can keep your basement dry.   Also can keep your sump pump from running to often which can shorten it’s life significantly.
