Anyone who has lived or worked in Illinois for even a short time knows that the winters can be extremely frigid. Because your outdoor pipes are exposed to such cold temperatures, they are liable to freeze. This can cause several problems, in addition to just inconveniently forcing the water pressure levels to drop dramatically whenever you use the sink or take a shower. In worst-case scenarios, a frozen pipe can suffer a hairline crack or even a larger break, which will result in a lot of wasted water and extensive damage to your valuables.
If your pipes are accessible, it is possible to insulate them from the cold. However, your outdoor irrigation system is usually difficult to reach if it is buried deep beneath the ground. Moreover, you will likely not be using the sprinkler system during the winter anyway. If this is the case, you might want to discuss the option of draining your pipes before winter hits. By having dedicated plumbers clear out your external plumbing, you can prevent the lines from freezing on account of the water trapped inside them. Just let our team at Meurer Plumbing Services know, so we can help you prepare before the blizzards blow.
