Many homeowners in Montana are used to tough winters, but some residents abandon their homes for warmer climates in the winter and return when spring arrives. That's when Flo-Rite Plumbing, in Flathead, should be called upon to dewinterize the house.
Offering plumbing repair and maintenance services, Flo-Rite Plumbing helps countless clients winterize their empty homes during cold months by shutting off the water, disconnecting the flex lines, and applying anti-freeze. When these residents return for summer, they need the help of a professional plumber to reverse the process and get the house ready to be lived in again.
Here are a few ways Flo-Rite Plumbing can help dewinterize your home:
- Perform An Inspection: Before the plumbing can be brought up to standard, a plumbing specialist will check every fixture, accessible pipe, and line that's connected to water. If anything has been damaged, the plumber will be able to spot it and offer you a plumbing repair on the spot.
- Turn On The Water: A member of Flo-Rite's plumbing team will turn on the water slowly to identify possible leaks. Then, the workers will let your tub run and test all the water appliances to make sure they're working properly.
- Reconnect Water Heaters: To winterize a home, water heaters are usually drained and disconnected. A plumbing specialist will reconnect the heater, refill it, and make sure it works properly.
- Check The Toilets: It's common for toilets to leak from the seals between their tanks and bowls. A plumber will test for leaks with several flushes and repair any leaks that might be visible.
- Evaluate The Exterior: Once all interior plumbing has been adjusted, the exterior of your home will be inspected. This includes outside faucets, pipes, sump pumps, and sewer lines.
